In celebration of the 20th anniversary of their multi-platinum debut album, The Better Life, 3 Doors Down will head out on a massive U.S. tour this summer and into the fall, playing the record in full. Each show will feature one of six slated opening acts, though Seether have been tapped as the sole guest on a majority of the stops.
The 42-date tour is set to begin on June 26 and wrap up on Oct. 16, serving as the protracted anniversary tour for The Better Life, which came out in 2000 and hit the 20-year milestone last year, but the pandemic obviously pushed the commemorative run out until 2021.
While Seether, who released Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum last year, will open most of the shows, Candlebox, Theory of a Deadman, Blackberry Smoke, Chayce Beckham and Koe Wetzel will each be featured at select dates, so check listings carefully.
“Especially after the last year everyone has had, I am really looking forward to rocking out and celebrating with our fans this summer. It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since we released The Better Life,” commented singer Brad Arnold.
“That album drastically changed our lives,” he continued, “and we are incredibly excited to celebrate the 20th Anniversary with our fans by playing The Better Life front to back this summer. It’s going to be a blast, and we can’t wait to get on the road and see everyone out there!”
