Shinedown coming back to Big Sandy Arena

October 4, 2018

HUNTINGTON — Multi-platinum rock band Shinedown has announced the first dates of their 2019 World Tour.

The U.S. headlining shows kick off this winter in February and includes a stop here at the SMG-managed Big Sandy Superstore Arena at 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24, featuring support from Papa Roach and Asking Alexandria.

Ticket prices are $78.50, $63 (GA PIT standing only), $53 and $43 (additional fees may apply) at http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/1600553CB1E96462.

A fan club pre-sale began 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, while general on-sale tickets begins Friday, Oct. 5.

The U.S. headlining shows kick off this winter on Feb. 20 in Estero, Florida.

Shinedown’s uplifting new single “Get Up” from their chart-topping album “Attention, Attention” (Atlantic Records) has been moving listeners around the globe with its offer of hope, empathy and encouragement in the face of personal struggles.

Offering a light in a time of darkness, especially with mental health issues, is something front man Brent Smith is deeply connected to after battling his

own personal demons, and “Get Up,” was born out of watching his friend, Shinedown bassist Eric Bass, deal with clinical depression.

Reaching far beyond any genre or label, “Get Up” can speak to the human spirit in a time of need, and it’s a song that has already resonated with the masses as its became a fan favorite at arena shows.

It has drawn attention from the likes of Huffington Post, Salon, Buzzfeed, Parade, Gram-my.com and more, has garnered more than 13 million total streams with key playlisting on Spotify and Apple Music, and is currently at Alternative Radio as well as Active Rock Radio, where it is sailing up the Top 10.

“Attention Attention” simultaneously hit No. 1 on Bill board’s Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Album charts and debuted Top 5 on the Bill board 200 and No. 1 on iTunes.

The story that unfolds as the album progresses is a poignant and enduring statement about humanity, touching on topics such as overcoming struggles, mental health, not being afraid to fail and the resolve of the human spirit as seen on tracks like the No. 1 Active Rock hit “Devil.” Given the deeply per sonal nature of the record, Shinedown went in-house for production for the first time ever, enlisting bassist Eric Bass to produce and mix the album in its entirety.

Shinedown is currently on the road for their co-headlining U.S. tour with Godsmack.
