Concert Announcement: 3 DOORS DOWN

3DD-2014-Promo-ShotThe Erie County Fair is excited to welcome 3 Doors Down with Collective Soul to the GUSTO Grandstand. These two rock bands will take the stage as part of the National Grid Concert Series on Opening Day of the 2015 Fair, Wednesday, August 12. The show will begin at 8:00pm.

Despite forming in 1995, 3 Doors Down didn’t hit the airwaves until the 2000 album release of The Better Life. The album, which launched the band’s career turned out the smash hit “Kryptonite” and is now certified six times platinum. Two years later 3 Doors Down found success again upon the release of Away from the Sun with the hits “When I’m Gone” and “Here Without You.”

Through the years 3 Doors Down has released five studio albums, all of which hit the Top 10 of the Billboard 200. The band has sold 16 million albums 3DD_BlockLogoworldwide and is currently working on their sixth, with hopes to add to that total. At the end of the decade 3 Doors Down was named #30 on Billboard’s Artists of the Decade (Best of the 2000s).

Collective Soul came out of Georgia in 1993. Shortly after forming the band was signed to Atlantic Records and turned out their first studio album Hits Allegations and Things Left Unsaid. “Shine” was the debut single from the record and it propelled Collective Soul to, what is going on three decades of, success.

The band’s second album was self-titled and became the most successful album the group produced to date. Debuting in 1995, Collective Soul featured hits “December,” “Where the River Flows,” and “The World I Know.”  The album itself remained on the Billboard 200 for seventy-six consecutive weeks.

Collective Soul is currently working on their sixth studio album See What You Started by Continuing, which will be released sometime this year.
