It won’t surprise many to learn that Shinedown and Papa Roach, both staples of red state rock radio for two decades, will team up to tour northern U.S. and Canadian arenas this summer. While it may initially be a shock to see Asking Alexandria on the bill, the band’s shift towards mainstream rock in recent years has been setting them up for exactly this kind of tour. In other words, that makes sense too.
For what it’s worth, I love Shinedown! Always have, always will. The other bands on this bill I could do without. But that’s just me. Savage After Midnight, with whom I’m not familiar, will open up the tour.
