Dates, Dates & More Dates …

The new dates for 3 Doors Down are for March, April and May. Playing theatres, arenas, and even a stadium or two, look for the band in cities like Panama City (FL), Chattanooga (TN), North Charleston (NC) and Saint Augustine (FL) in March, Poplar Bluff (MO), Tempe (AZ), and Texarkana (AR) in April and Birmingham (AL) in May.

Story Of The Year updates with several new show listings for April. Playing mostly theatres and clubs, stops include Tucson (April 6), Denver (April 10), Chicago (April 14) and Cincinnati (April 19).

Safe to say, there is no one, we repeat, no one, quite like The Manhattan Transfer. The vocal group has been entertaining audiences since 1969 with its trademark mix of jazz, pop and big band stylings. New dates include April 25 (San Rafael, CA), June 7 (Atlantic City, NJ) and May 7 (Nashville, TN).

And we reeled in a Reel Big Fish update a couple of hours ago. New dates are for March and April and include shows in Aspen, Boulder, Baltimore and Potsdam, NY.

During the day we also updated the schedules for Ray Davies, Gloria Estefan, Lucero, Kathy Griffin, Joe Cocker, Head East, Steve Miller Band, Zapp, Rihanna, Minus The Bear, My Chemical Romance, Lightspeed Champion, James McMurtry, Guy Forsyth, Puddle Of Mudd, Richard Thompson, Steve Earle, Chevelle, KT Tunstall, In Flames, Missy Higgins, The Strawbs, Van Halen, Elvis Presley, James Brown and Jimi Hendrix (We just wanted to see if you were paying attention).

And that's our story for this fine, fine Thursday. Have a great evening and we look forward to sharing another adventure in concert data with you tomorrow. Good night.
