The calendar may read 2023, but this summer 3 Doors Down will be taking you back in time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their sophomore set, Away From the Sun. The band just announced a summer run celebrating the album that will include support from Candlebox, who are also celebrating the 30th anniversary of their band with what will be their final U.S. tour leg.
After the huge success of their debut album, The Better Life, 3 Doors Down avoided the sophomore slump with Away From the Sun just keeping the momentum going. The album debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart and featured the chart-topping lead single “When I’m Gone,” the Top 10 follow-up “The Road I’m On,” the heartfelt rock ballad “Here Without You” and the album’s title track. The record itself was released in November 2002, but the band’s touring support primarily took place in 2003, making this a true 20th anniversary celebration.
“Away From the Sun has always been a personal favorite of mine because of how much it resonated with our country’s service members,” shares 3 Doors Down’s Brad Arnold. “We are so blessed to be able to celebrate these significant milestones because we were very young making these albums, and we still have so much more life to give our fans.” Arnold continues, “The show we are planning will be next level this year. It’s going to be incredible to have Candlebox on tour with us. I’ve been a fan of theirs since I was a teenager..“
The band will be playing all of the songs from the album throughout their performances on this tour, while also delving into their other hits as well. – Loudwire
