The bands revealed arena dates for January and February today, promising there are more to come.
It’s a good time for both bands to tour. Three Days Grace’s latest album – Life Starts Now – is a best seller and has spawned at least one hit single with the song “Break.”
Breaking Benjamin is no slouch either. The band’s latest effort – Dear Agony – is also a monster seller, resulting in the first single from the album – “I Will Not Bow” – hitting No. 1 on rock radio charts.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin have joined road forces. The two bands shared headline billing in 2007.
“I’m looking forward to touring with the Three Days Grace guys again,” said Breaking Benjamin lead singer Ben Burnley. “This is going to be a kick ass night of music for the fans.”
And there are plenty of dates on which the bands can kick some serious bootie. First up is Peoria, Ill., at the Peoria Civic Center Arena Jan. 15. The next night is Detroit at the Joe Louis Arena Feb. 16 followed by Madison, Wis., at the Alliant Energy Center Jan. 18 and Duluth, Minn., at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center Jan. 20.
