Matchbox Twenty’s Kyle Cook joins for special live video chat at 3:30 p.m.

What do you do if you’re the lead guitarist of a touring rock band and you’ve got an off-date between stops in Mansfield, Mass., and Salisbury, Md., on a Monday in August?

If you’re Kyle Cook of Matchbox Twenty, you squeeze in a baseball game. And since Camden Yards is close to the Wicomico Civic Center, site of Tuesday’s show with Goo Goo Dolls, Cook is detouring to Charm City, where he’ll perform the national anthem before tonight’s game and watch the Orioles battle the Tampa Bay Rays in a key American League East game.

But before he samples some of the local cuisine and pays homage to Francis Scott Key with an electric guitar version, Cook will be stopping by the Web studio for a special live video chat, beginning at 3:30 p.m.

Camden Yards public address announcer Ryan Wagner will be hosting the chat, so if there’s something you’ve been dying to ask Cook, leave your questions in the comments section and we’ll try to get to as many of your questions as possible during this special live video chat.

Matchbox Twenty is currently touring to support its new album “North,” which features the hit singles “She’s So Mean” and “Our Song.” Through a contest on the band’s Web site, Cook gifted pairs of box seats to tonight’s game to five lucky fans, who will also meet and greet him pregame.
