Hard rock powerhouse 3 DOORS DOWN is headlining the Scars And Stripes music festival at the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center Saturday, June 3. The multi-platinum band, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary last year with the release of its sixth studio album, "Us And The Night", has rocked audiences around the world of the strength of such hits as "Kryptonite", "When I'm Gone", "Here Without You" and numerous others.
Scars And Stripes is being produced by Filthy Nasty Productions in conjunction with Empire Reign and Mungo Creative Group. Discounted tickets will initially be available to active duty military, their dependents and veterans and then go on-sale to the general public. Proceeds from ticket sales will be used to benefit three local veteran organizations in the Las Vegas area including the Nevada chapter of Pets For Vets. Pets For Vets is dedicated to supporting veterans and providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing, training and pairing them with veterans who could benefit from a companion animal.
"Vegas has always been a great city to us, we have fond memories of shows there," said Brad Arnold, lead vocalist for 3 DOORS DOWN. "When we were asked to headline the inaugural Scars And Stripes festival in support of veterans and Pets For Vets, we were immediately in! Our military and veterans are near and dear to our hearts and a big part of why we do this. We look forward to a great day of rock 'n' roll with POP EVIL and many other great bands. See you June 3rd!"
