3 Doors Down has announced summer tour plans, including a July 23 Artpark date in the Outdoor Amphitheater as part of the venue's "Coors Light Wednesdays" series. Tickets ($11 advance general admission/$16 week of show/$26 limited front-of-stage, standing-room-only) go on sale Saturday, May 3, at 10 a.m.
Brad Arnold, Chris Henderson and the members of 3 Doors Down have assembled in a Nashville studio writing songs for their sixth studio album, to be released in 2015. Alongside the founding members, the new repertoire is a collective effort with all members participating in the writing process.
Since forming in 1995, the Mississippi rock quintet 3 Doors Down has sold more than 16 million albums worldwide, garnered three Grammy nominations, two American Music Awards, and five BMI Pop Awards for songwriting, including BMI's coveted "Songwriter of the Year" award. The band's debut album, 2000's "The Better Life," which is now certified six-times platinum, featured the smash hit "Kryptonite." The band's sophomore album, 2002's "Away from the Sun," saw similar success with its radio mainstays "When I'm Gone" and "Here Without You." Their subsequent efforts - 2005's platinum-certified "Seventeen Days" and 2008's "3 Doors Down" - debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 Chart. In 2012, 3 Doors Down released "The Greatest Hits," a collection of nine No. 1 hits and three new songs, returning to the top 5 at radio with "One Light."
The rest of the Artpark lineup will be announced April 28, with tickets going on sale Saturday, May 3, at 10 a.m.
