From a press release:

Today, multi-platinum rock band Shinedown announced The Revolutions Live Tour with support from fellow chart-toppers Three Days Grace and From Ashes to New.

Co-produced by FPC Live and Live Nation, their Revolutions Live Tour starts off in Saginaw, Michigan on April 3, kicking off a 21-date run of spring shows across the United States that will see the record-breaking band bring their hit album “Planet Zero” to life live from coast to coast. They will also play the Blue Ridge Rock Festival at Virginia International Raceway in Alton this September.

After stopping at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College on Saturday, April 8, the tour will come to Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza (255 Highland Park Blvd., Wilkes-Barre Twp.) on Monday, April 10 at 7 p.m.

Tickets, which start at $49.95, go on sale to the general public this Friday, Jan. 27 at 10 a.m. at Various pre-sales will be available Tuesday, Jan. 24 through Thursday, Jan. 26.

This tour announcement follows last week’s release of the new music video for Shinedown’s current single “Dead Don’t Die,” a rousing declaration of survival and an anthem about the resilience of the human spirit after trying times, written by guitarist Zach Myers about frontman Brent Smith. The cinematic video, filmed in London, was directed by Lewis Cater.

The “Planet Zero” album debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart and the Official U.K. Albums Chart and at No. 1 on six other Billboard charts, including Top Album Sales, Rock, Hard Rock, and Alternative Albums charts. Featuring searing and incisive tracks like “Dead Don’t Die” and No. 1 rock hit “Planet Zero,” as well as uplifting and unifying songs like the soaring pop rock anthem and No. 1 rock hit “Daylight” and “A Symptom of Being Human,” the 2022 record boldly confronts the societal forces that perpetuate divisiveness while offering a restorative path forward through empathy and open conversation – ultimately serving as a reminder that it is our human connections that matter the most. The band’s video for “Daylight,” set to the Amazon Original version of the song, is a love letter to their fans and shows the impact that the song’s message – that you are never alone – had during Shinedown’s sold-out Planet Zero World Tour.

Additionally, the group recently received an iHeartRadio Music Awards nomination for Rock Artist of the Year as well as for Rock Song of the Year for “Planet Zero.”

Shinedown – Brent Smith (vocals), Zach Myers (guitar), Eric Bass (bass, production), and Barry Kerch (drums) – from Jacksonville, Florida has cemented their status as one of the most vital and forward-thinking powerhouses in modern rock, embodying the kind of creative dynamism, constant evolution, singular vision, and an uncompromising honesty that transcends boundaries.

Known for the timely messages behind their chart-topping songs that resonate with not only their global audience and the rock community, but our culture at large, the band has achieved astronomical success with over 6.5 billion global streams, 19 No. 1 rock hits, 15 platinum and gold singles, platinum or gold certification for every album, and 10 million albums sold worldwide.

Shinedown has also become an essential cultural force, as evidenced by their major media acclaim and participation in the prestigious 92Y Talks series. They are currently named No. 1 on Billboard’s Greatest of All Time Mainstream Rock Artists chart after notching the most-ever No. 1s (18) in the 40-year history of the Mainstream Rock Songs chart with a string of consecutive hit singles – including “Daylight,” “Planet Zero,” “Atlas Falls,” “Get Up,” “Attention Attention,” “Monsters,” and “Devil” – and landed each of their 29 singles in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart, tied with Foo Fighters for the most out of any artist in history.

2018’s acclaimed release “Attention Attention,” a story album that tackles such complex matters as mental health and the resolve of the human spirit, was certified RIAA gold and debuted in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200; simultaneously hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock, and Hard Rock Albums charts; and led to five iHeart Radio Music Award nominations. Its accompanying 2021 feature film, directed by Bill Yukich (Beyoncé, Metallica), is a riveting visual counterpart to the album’s narrative, weaving its 14 songs into a provocative cinematic journey that illuminates yet another dimension of their limitless creativity.

Hailed for their high-octane live shows, explosive rock ‘n’ roll spirit, thought-provoking lyrics, and melodic sensibility, Shinedown continues to engender diehard love from millions of global fans and has racked up countless sold-out arena tours and festival headlining sets propelled by the undeniable power of Smith’s voice.

Since 2003, Three Days Grace has staked a spot among the hard rock vanguard, breaking records, toppling charts, and moving millions of units worldwide. In 2015, “Human” marked the Canadian group’s second straight No. 1 slot on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums chart as well as their fourth consecutive debut in the Top 20 of the Top 200. It spawned two No. 1 singles, “Painkiller” and “I Am Machine,” signaling their 13th overall and fifth consecutive No. 1s on the U.S. Active Rock Radio chart. Moreover, the four-piece consistently averaged a staggering 3.9 million monthly listeners on Spotify, remaining one of the most listened to rock bands in the world.

In 2012, “Transit of Venus” soared to the Top 5 of the Top 200 and garnered a nod for Best Rock Album of the Year at the Juno Awards. The seminal “One-X” (2006) notched an RIAA triple-platinum certification as “Three Days Grace” (2003) was minted platinum and “Life Starts Now” went gold.

To date, their veritable arsenal of No. 1 hits include “Chalk Outline,” “The High Road,” “Misery Loves My Company,” “World So Cold,” “The Good Life,” “Break,” “Never Too Late,” “Animal I Have Become,” “Pain,” “Just Like You,” and “Home.”
