3 Doors Down hit the stage for an intimate show just for their loyal fans, and they did not disappoint.
On Thursday night, May 4, the Mississippi-based band delivered some of their most memorable hits during "iHeartRadio LIVE." Front man Brad Arnold had every fan at the edge of their seat as they opened with "When I'm Gone" and "It's Not My Time" off their second album Away From The Sun. Later on, everyone in the venue went wild as they performed their critically-acclaimed songs "Here Without You" and "Kryptonite." Host Chris Booker of L.A.'s ALT 98.7 got the band to open up about the 20th anniversary of their sophomore LP.
"This is the first record we ever wrote as a professional band," Brad Arnold told Booker. "You've got your whole life to write your first record but you got like two years to write your second one."
"It was incredible," he added. "We were really blessed and it was a lot to live up to."
The show continued with other fan favorites like "Loser," "Let Me Go," "Landing In London," "Be Like That" and "Duck & Run." In between, the band also shared that they've been working on new music. Arnold said that they've got a few songs written but haven't finished the record yet. It would be their first album in seven years.
3 Doors Down belted out their classics ahead of their "Away From The Sun Anniversary Tour," which is set to kick off next month. Beginning June 14 in Baltimore, MD, the band will travel across the country to major cities from Atlanta to Las Vegas until it wraps up on October 21 in North Carolina.
"Away From The Sun has always been a personal favorite of mine because of how much it resonated with our country’s service members," Brad Arnold said about the tour. "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."
Make sure to buy you tickets to 3 Doors Down's "Away From The Sun Anniversary Tour" and look out for the remastered deluxe version of their 2002 album arriving this summer.
