For further details about ticket on-sale, pre-sale, tour packages and more, please visit www.shinedown.com.
"Anything & Everything" marks the first acoustic tour for Shinedown and promises to be an intimate evening of music as well as insight into the songs themselves. Beyond performing stripped down versions of their chart topping hits and fan favorites, the band plans on speaking candidly with the audience about the stories behind the songs and where they came from, even fielding some questions from the audience themselves.
Frontman Brent Smith: "We've always tried to exceed our fans' expectations with our live shows, giving 110% each and every night. We've been asked when we'd do an acoustic tour for awhile so we decided to take it a step further. We felt these types of shows were the perfect setting to really have a heart-to-heart with them -- a place where they could ask us anything and we would tell them everything. We can't wait."
Platinum recording group Shinedown has established themselves as one of the most successful rock bands of the decade with their staggering run of 12 consecutive Top 5 hit singles. The Jacksonville, Florida based band exploded onto the rock music scene with their 2003 Platinum debut, "Leave A Whisper," and 2005 Gold follow-up, "Us & Them." Their latest album, "The Sound Of Madness," debuted at #8 upon its 2008 release and has since gone platinum, selling well over a million copies in the U.S. alone. "The Crow & The Butterfly" is the album's fifth single, following an unbelievable streak of #1 rock hits including the cross-over smash "Second Chance." The band recently wrapped up the inaugural Carnival Of Madness tour, headlining a stellar lineup of today's biggest rock acts including Chevelle, Puddle Of Mudd, Sevendust, and 10 Years.
