In January 2014, mainstream rockers 3 Doors Down are set to hit the road for their Acoustic Songs From The Basement Tour, a unique live experience in which the band will play a mix of greatest hits and deep cuts acoustically in smaller, intimate venues across the country. A limited number of VIP fans will have the opportunity to sit on-stage with the band during the performance. “We experimented with an acoustic show in Nashville and had such a great response that we decided to take it on the road,” said frontman Brad Arnold. “We’ve never toured like this before, some of these songs have never been played live!” More tour dates are set to be announced in the coming weeks.
The band just hosted their 10th Annual The Better Life Foundation concert on November 16 at Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, Mississippi. The foundation’s mission is to make a positive change in the lives of children in need by providing food, shelter, and medical assistance to enhance the lives of children and young adults with special needs. The funds raised are distributed to organizations and hospitals that fulfill the band’s mission to enable children to develop their potential, achieve their goals, and become caring and responsible adults.
3 Doors Down catapulted to super-stardom in 2000 with their debut album, The Better Life. The album produced the band’s signature smash hit, “Kryptonite”, and to date has been certified six times platinum. The band avoided “sophomore slump” with their second album, 2002’s Away from the Sun, which produced two huge hits for the band – “When I’m Gone” and “Here Without You”. In the mid-2000’s, 3 Doors Down released back-to-back #1 albums on the Billboard Top 200 – 2005’s Seventeen Days and 2008’s self-titled 3 Doors Down. Both albums achieved platinum status, and the self-titled effort sold over 154,000 copies in it’s first week of sales.
After much touring, the band returned to the studio in 2011 and released Time of My Life, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2012, 3 Doors Down released The Greatest Hits, their first-ever collection of nine #1 hit songs, as well as three new tunes. One of which, “One Light”, became a Top 5 hit single on the rock charts. To support the album, the band hit the road with contemporaries Daughtry on a massive three-leg North American co-headline runs with Daughtry. 3 Doors Down also toured overseas, with stops in Mexico, Dubia, Europe, and Russia for the very first time. Since the release of their debut LP, 3 Doors Down have sold over 16 million albums worldwide, garnered two American Music Awards and five BMI Pop Awards for songwriting, including their Songwriter of the Year Award. The band has also been nominated for three Grammy Awards. – by Matt Bishop
