3 Doors Down announces Away From the Sun Anniversary Tour

Candlebox will join as special guests

This summer, 3 Doors Down celebrates its sophomore album, Away From The Sun, by hitting amphitheaters in major markets across the US for the Away From The Sun Anniversary Tour, produced by Live Nation. The band will be playing all of the songs from the album throughout the performances, plus all of their biggest hits.

Artist Presale and VIP Packages are available beginning March 21st at 10 am local time. The general on sale for the tour begins Friday, March 24th at 10 am local time via Ticketmaster.

Away From The Sun features “Here Without You,” which reached No. 5 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was certified 6x Platinum in the US. The lead single, “When I’m Gone,” peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent 17 weeks on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, becoming one of the longest-running No. 1 singles.

Special guest Candlebox will be supporting the trek for what is slated to be the band’s last US tour to promote the 30th anniversary of the band and their final farewell studio album being released later this year by Round Hill Records.

Candlebox will also perform at 3 Doors Down’s 18th Annual The Better Life Foundation Concert this fall. The event will take place at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, NC, on October 21st. To date, The Better Life Foundation has donated over $3 million to veterans, children, women, and humanitarian relief efforts domestically and around the globe.

Away From The Sun has always been a personal favorite of mine because of how much it resonated with our country’s service members,” shares 3 Doors Down’s Brad Arnold. “We are so blessed to be able to celebrate these significant milestones because we were very young making these albums, and we still have so much more life to give our fans.” Arnold continues, “The show we are planning will be next level this year. It’s going to be incredible to have Candlebox on tour with us. I’ve been a fan of theirs since I was a teenager..“

3 Doors Down will also star in Season IV of television’s most successful nationally syndicated music-driven series, The Song, on March 25th. The show takes a quintessential look at the indelible legacies of celebrated recording artists and the music that made them famous. It  airs on major network affiliates in 150 markets across the country.
