Virtually nothing can defeat the raw power of rock music, with the possible exception of paper music. Pump your fist with this GrouponLive deal to see 3 Doors Down at Bayou Music Center. For $25, you get one general-admission ticket on Saturday, June 23, at 8 p.m. (up to a $47.99 value, including fees).
No auto-tuned disco songs. No animatronic stage props. No frills necessary. Mississippi natives 3 Doors Down distill rock 'n' roll to its essence: a bareknuckle formula of distorted guitars, thick bass lines, dynamic drumming, and unfiltered vocals. The popular post-grunge outfit has stuck to its well-oiled guns since 1996, cranking out memorable hard-rock anthems that instantly adhere to radio airwaves like aluminum-foil hats on alien-conspiracy theorists. If a lion could write poetry and sing in English, it would sound much like frontman Brad Arnold, whose subtle Southern drawl captivates audiences with animal appeal as he prowls the stage. From Billboard-topping hits such as “Kryptonite” and "Loser" off its six-times-platinum album The Better Life to the earnest ballads on its 2011 release, Time of My Life, 3 Doors Down endears itself to its fans with undiluted passion and high-volume rocking.
