Multi-platinum rock band Shinedown and multi-platinum-selling and award-winning recording artist Three Days Grace have announced their 2013 co-headlining arena tour with special guest P.O.D. (Payable On Death). The tour makes a stop at Orlando’s Amway Center on Saturday, March 9 and tickets go on sale Friday, December 14 at 10 a.m.
“Shinedown prides itself on always taking our live shows to the next level and giving our fans everything they want – honest, emotional and incendiary performances,” says Shinedown front man, Brent Smith. “This tour is no exception. In fact, we’re raising the bar.”
“We can’t wait to get back out on the road to play live for our fans; that’s the best part of doing what we do,” says Three Days Grace.
Shinedown is indisputably one of the most successful rock bands of the past 10 years, enjoying an unparalleled streak of hits. The band’s current album “Amaryllis” entered the Billboard 200 at number four upon its release (number one on the Rock Album Chart) and has already spawned back-to-back number one singles with “Bully” and “Unity.” Their current single “Enemies” is a Top 10 on rock radio and climbing; the song’s provocative music video can be viewed at http://youtu.be/OoHGZFyMCHU. Over the course of their illustrious career, Shinedown has garnered sixteen number one singles (including their current streak of eight consecutive number one rock radio hits). The band’s unprecedented ascendancy over multi-format rock radio commenced with their RIAA platinum certified 2003 debut, “Leave a Whisper,” its gold certified 2005 follow-up, “Us and Them,” and 2008 platinum-certified “The Sound of Madness.” Shinedown’s numerous, national television appearances include performances on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Today Show,” CBS’ “The Early Show” and many others.

Three Days Grace recently wrapped over a dozen sold-out, intimate shows in celebration of their newly released, top-five chart-debuting album “Transit of Venus” (RCA Records), which hit stores last month. In addition to debuting at number five on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart, “Transit of Venus” debuted at number one on the Hard Rock Music Chart and number four on the Digital Albums Chart. Three Days Grace embarks on new creative ground with their latest, album recording for the first time with acclaimed producer Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Hollywood Undead, Bullet for My Valentine). The video for their number one single “Chalk Outline,” was directed by acclaimed lens man, Shane Drake.

P.O.D. (Payable on Death) joins the tour in support of their summer release, “Murdered Love” (“Razor & Tie”). The album sees the band reunited with long-time producer Howard Benson who also produced the band’s massive “Satellite”album alongside hit albums for Kelly Clarkson, Theory Of A Deadman, Daughtry, and My Chemical Romance. P.O.D.’s first single off the album, “Lost in Forever,” hit number one on Active Rock Radio (number one on BDS – Broadcast Data Systems) and is their first-ever number one single at the Active Rock format. The band’s second single, “Higher,” impacted radio two weeks ago and is already charting at Active Rock. P.O.D. is currently touring with Daughtry and 3 Doors Down. P.O.D. formed in 1992 and has logged a remarkable array of achievements, including worldwide sales exceeding 10 million and a series of chart-topping radio hits.
