Seeing one of your favorite bands is a transcendent experience, like seeing your favorite actor play your favorite president. Spoil your senses with this GrouponLive deal to see Daughtry and 3 Doors Down at Kellogg Arena. For $25, you get a ticket for seating in sections C–F or N–Q on Friday, February 1, at 7 p.m. (up to a $44.50 value, including fees). Doors open at 6 p.m.
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 bare-knuckle 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.
After battling to the final rounds of American Idol in the fifth season, frontman Chris Daughtry rocketed to fame on the strength of his band's debut album. Since then, Daughtry has stormed radio stations with hits such as “What About Now,” “Crawling Back to You,” and “Home.” The three-time American Music Award winners won the hearts of millions of listeners by frequently playing the surgeon's lottery and pouring out infectiously catchy choruses and raw lyrics about heartbreak and redemption. Throughout the evening the band will belt out favorite hits and tracks from their latest album, Break the Spell, which dropped in late 2011.
