The legendary 3 Doors Down are taking orbit this summer with special guest Candlebox in their Away from the Sun Anniversary Tour. Can you believe it’s been 20 years since the album’s release? This Mississippi band, formed in 1996, will play every song from their sophomore album along with many other hits in this once in a blue moon event. The album features their mega hits “When I’m Gone” and “Here Without You.”
“Kryptonite,” their big bang hit, gave them international stardom when it was officially released back in January 2000. It was part of the album “The Better Life,” which became the 11th best-selling album of the year. “Away from the Sun” did even better at number eight.
Front-man Brad Arnold says the shows this summer will be out of this world; well, technically, he said, “next level.” He explained, “’Away From the Sun’ has always been a personal favorite of mine because of how much it resonated with our country’s service members.”
Arnold, a longtime fan of Candlebox, is extremely excited to have them joining the tour this summer. This Seattle band formed in 1990 and is best known for their hits “Far Behind,” “You,” and “Change,” and “Cover Me.”
Another thing that is near and dear to their hearts is their very own The Better Life Foundation, which helps give children a better life by donating its proceeds to various organizations and hospitals whose mission is to help children “develop their potential, achieve their goals, and, become caring and responsible adults.”
Recently, 3 Doors Down appeared on season four of “The Song,” a highly-acclaimed, music-driven television series. They’ve also put out a deluxe digital release with a whopping 10 bonus tracks, and a new video for “Pop Song” that gives fans a look into the tour via behind-the-scenes imagery and awesome concert footage.
Add 3 Doors Down and Candlebox into your summer plans. They are offering three VIP packages to their coveted fans: the Away from the Sun Viewing Package; the Here Without You front row package; and the When I’m Gone tour package. Each one has limited availability so grab it before it’s gone. Tour dates run through September but are now mainly focused in the mid-west and east. OCMN plans to catch up with them when they hit Raleigh, NC on August 26th. 4
