Daughtry, 3 Doors Down Push Tour Dates into 2013
The new dates will kick off January 25 at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas, and the groups will remain on the road through a date at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida on February 23, 2013. Other cities the trek will hit include Tulsa, Oklahoma; St. Louis; Erie, Pennsylvania; Worcester, Massachusetts; Uncasville, Connecticut; Sunrise, Florida And Pensacola, Florida.
The current leg of the tour has been on the road since mid-November, and the group has been playing sold out shows around the country since that time. P.O.D. is opening most dates on the current leg – no word yet on whether that band will be joining the extended version of the tour.
“We’re very happy to continue the tour with 3 Doors Down, and look forward to getting this show to the fans that we missed on the first leg of the tour,” said Chris Daughtry, lead singer of Daughtry, in a statement.
“This tour with Daughtry has been amazing, and we are excited to keep it rolling into 2013,” said Brad Arnold, frontman of 3 Doors Down. “See you on the road my friends!”
Certainly nothing news in those press release quotes, but its nice to see both groups appear to be having a good time.
Daughtry continues to support Break the Spell, its third studio album that was released late last year. The group spent a good portion of this year touring with Nickelback before embarking on the 3 Doors Down co-headlining tour.
Last month, 3 Doors Down released its first greatest hits collection, appropriately titled The Greatest Hits. The compilation features two new songs by the band: “One Light” and “Goodbyes.” Of course, the collection also includes a slew of past hits, including “Kryptonite” and “When I’m Gone.”
