3 Doors Down heading to Costa Mesa this summer for anniversary tour


Pop-rockers 3 Doors Down head down the halls of the US to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary and their second album, “Away From the Sun.”

The “Kryptonite” hitmakers announced Monday the Away From the Sun Anniversary tour, which will stop in California this summer after launching June 14 at Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore, Maryland.

They will play all the songs from their 2000 album, including “Here Without You” and the Grammy-nominated “When I’m Gone,” during the performances, as well as their biggest hits, according to concert promoter Live Nation. Artist pre-sale and VIP packages are available starting Tuesday, with general sales for the tour beginning Friday.

The band stops in Wheatland, California to play the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Sacramento on July 13. He will then continue south for a concert on July 15 at the pacific amphitheater in Costa Mesa as part of the annual Orange County Fair. From there, the rockers head to Las Vegas for a July 16 show at the Pearl Theater, hitting amphitheaters in major markets until they wrap up the tour in Sugar Land, Texas on September 23. (Here it is the complete list of dates and places.)

The Mississippi-bred act will be joined by special guest Candlebox. The tour is the band’s last US outing to promote their anniversary and will coincide with the release of their “final farewell studio album” which will be released by Round Hill Records later this year, Live Nation said.

Seattle’s Candlebox will also join 3 Doors Down for their annual benefit concert supporting the Better Life Foundation this fall at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, NC on October 21. The foundation, which aids veterans, children, women, and humanitarian relief efforts, has reportedly donated more than $3 million to their causes over the years.

“‘Away From The Sun’ has always been my personal favorite because of how much it resonated with our country’s service members,” 3 Doors Down lead vocalist Brad Arnold, 44, said in a statement. “We are very blessed to be able to celebrate these important milestones because we were very young making these albums and we still have so much more life to give to our fans.

“The show we are planning will be next level this year. It will be amazing to have Candlebox on tour with us. I’ve been a fan of them since I was a teenager,” Arnold said.
