NEWS: SHINEDOWN comes to Detroit on September 21

| 25 August 2022 | Reply

Multi-platinum rock band Shinedown – who were named #1 on Billboard’s Greatest Of All Time Mainstream Rock Artists Chart in 2021 – is on the road this year in support of their brand-new album, Planet Zero, with their biggest stage show yet, propelled by the undeniable power of front man Brent Smith’s voice. The Planet Zero World Tour with special guests Jelly Roll and John Harvie, produced by Live Nation, stops in over 20 cities across the U.S. this September and October including Detroit on Wednesday, September 21 at Pine Knob Music Theatre. Tickets are on sale now.

Just released July 1st via Atlantic Records, Planet Zero, the band’s seventh studio album, features the hard-hitting title track and lead single “Planet Zero,” which has amassed over 11 million streams and is currently nominated for a MTV Video Music Award for Best Rock Video, and their current single “Daylight,” a soaring and poignant anthem about the human condition, offering an assurance that you are never alone. “Daylight” just notched Shinedown their record-holding 19th #1 at Active Rock Radio.  The album’s searing social commentary boldly confronts the consequences of the pervasive divisiveness in our society while offering a restorative path forward through empathy and open conversation. Planet Zero debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales, Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Rock Albums, Top Alternative Albums Charts and entered the Billboard 200 at #5 and UK Albums Chart at #4.

On songs like “No Sleep Tonight, “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo,” and “Sure Is Fun,” Shinedown is taking on the societal forces that keep us divided, including cancel culture, the toxicity between those of differing ideologies, the need for honesty in our public discourse, and the corrosive effects of social media on our ability to have a healthy dialogue with one another. Planet Zero’s ultimate message of perseverance, triumph, and human connection shines through on tracks like “A Symptom of Being Human,” “Hope,” and “Daylight.”

With more than 6.5 billion global streams, a Billboard record for the most mainstream rock #1 hits ever, platinum or gold certification for all their albums, 10 million albums sold, and major media praise, Shinedown has cemented their status as one of the most vital and forward-thinking powerhouses in music.
