Shinedown and Breaking Benjamin have stunned the rock world when the bands announced that they will pack up the gear and hit the road together for a co-headlining, two-month, 27-date U.S coast-to-coast fall tour. If those two bands were not enough for you, add Sevendust and Nothing More on select dates to round out one hell of a rock tour.
Bands will load their tour buses and hit the road starting in Wichita, Kansas on Oct. 16 at the Intrust Arena and close the curtains Nov. 24 at the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, Maine.
Albany and the Times Union Center will see the second to last stop, and the only New York date, on this star-studded tour on Monday, Nov. 23.
Recently, Shinedown and Breaking Benjamin shared the stage in Central New York this summer at the 20th anniversary show for Syracuse rock radio station K Rock, giving rock fans that day an amazing showing and, as we know now, giving them a glimpse into the future. The bands will also share the stage at this year’s Monster Energy Drink Aftershock Festival in California.
Shinedown recently released a music video for lead #1 hit single “Cut The Cord,” off their upcoming fifth studio album Threat To Survive, which the band announced will be released on Sept. 18 and available for pre-order everywhere.
Shinedown has released 19 singles, with all six singles from the band’s breakthrough album The Sound Of Madness reaching #1 on the rock charts. Follow-up album Amaryllis saw three more #1 singles and two top-five hits.
Shinedown’s highly energetic performances, mixed with frontman Brent Smith’s emotional theatrical performances and positive vibe he commands over the crowd, make for many memorable concert moments.
Breaking Benjamin released their fifth studio album, but first to debut at #1, this past June titled Dark Before Dawn. The album has already released two hit singles in the songs “Failure” and “Angels Fall.”
After a hiatus, Ben returned with a new lineup and played a string of limited, sold-out acoustic shows before hitting the road on an electric touring cycle. This eventually brought the band through every major rock festival this summer, playing amazing, unforgettable performances at Rock on the Range, Rocklahoma and Carolina Rebellion.
Nothing More will add their high-powered, energetic, must-see performance to the lineup during October, the first month of the tour.
Sevendust will hit the road with the boys for the month of November to support their 11th studio album, Kill The Flaw, which will be released on Oct. 2.
