For us as a live band it breathes new life into these songs, allows us to switch-up our set and dig really deep into our catalog. We’re looking forward to playing in some intimate venues, which we don’t often do, and being up close and personal with our fans.”

The “Sit On The Back Porch with 3DD” package will feature the ability to sit on-stage during 3 Doors Down’s entire set while listening to the bands in-ear mix through custom headphones, Meet & Greet, Photo opportunity, exclusive merch and much more.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Despite my doing my best to keep up on the bands of the 90’s Alternative Rock times, I never really followed 3 Doors Down outside the few hits that were always on the radio or being blasted at me in bars where cover band after cover band tried their best at their renditions. Sometimes they succeeded and at other times, they really did not but I digress. With this disclosure I should say that I’ve not yet seen the band but with them still doing shows its one I’d like to cross off my list. Sadly this run isn’t coming anywhere near me so I’ll have to hope for something closer being added as they determine additional dates. Are you a fan of the band? Will you be seeing this one? Let me know what you think down in the comments section. Until next time.
