3 Doors Down Announce Exclusive Acoustic Engagement May 4th In Nashville

| 26 February 2013 | Reply


Nashville, TN  — 3 Doors Down has announced a one-time only exclusive engagement staged to present all the hits as acoustic performances.  The five band members now call Nashville home, and have chosen the War Memorial as the venue for this special evening on May 4 at 8PM.  Tickets will go on sale Friday, March 1.  The event is presented by WBUZ.   Singer Brad Arnold shares, “We all call Nashville home, and we cannot wait to perform for our fans in a more intimate setting at War Memorial.  It will also be the first time we have performed a full set acoustically.  It’s going to be a great evening.”

Originally from Escatawpa, MS, all five members have now emigrated to Music City.  With the recent release The Greatest Hits, featuring the Top 10 single “One Light,” the idea of this special evening was hatched.  3 Doors Down guitarist Chris Henderson offers, “These songs translate so well from the electric versions. We go through and strip each one down to figure out what will work best for this type of show. It’s a reimagining of the songs.”

While many greatest hits albums signify the end of a career, the band’s recent release is the origin of a new chapter.  Historically, few artists over the past two decades have enjoyed a greater level of radio airplay success than 3 Doors Down, and with “One Light” hitting the Top 10 at the Active Rock format and reaching the Top 3 at Mainstream rock, the band has once again proven they are hit makers. The Greatest Hits via long-time label partner Republic Records was released on November 19, 2012.  The collection features nine #1 hits that have been remixed and re-mastered, alongside three new songs.  The full track-listing includes “Kryptonite,” “When I’m Gone,” “Here Without You,” “It’s Not My Time,” “Let Me Go,” “Be Like That,” “Loser,” “Away From The Sun,” “Duck and Run,” “One Light,” “There’s A Life,” and “Goodbyes.”

Currently the band is in the midst of a co-headline tour with Daughtry, alongside isolated dates that recently brought them to Dubai and will feature an appearances in Mexico in March.  Following U.S. festival appearances in April and May, the band travels to Russia, Finland, Scandinavia, destinations across Europe, and the U.K.  For the complete itinerary, click here:
