In a pairing of hit-making rock acts, Three Days Grace and Shinedown are teaming up for a co-headlining U.S. arena tour kicking off in February 2013. Adding more firepower to the bill will be opening act P.O.D.
Three Days Grace, who recently released the album ‘Transit of Venus,’ issued this band statement regarding the tour: “We can’t wait to get back out on the road to play live for our fans; that’s the best part of doing what we do.” The band’s current single ‘Chalk Outline’ spent several weeks at No. 1 on the active rock chart.
Meanwhile, Shinedown will be out in support of their latest album, ‘Amaryllis,’ and singer Brent Smith says of the trek: “Shinedown prides itself on always taking our live shows to the next level and giving our fans everything they want – honest, emotional, and incendiary performances. This tour is no exception. In fact, we’re raising the bar.”
This past summer, P.O.D. released ‘Murdered Love,’ which has yielded the No. 1 rock hit ‘Lost in Forever.’
