Multi-platinum, chart-topping band Shinedown has announced their upcoming The Revolutions Live Tour will stop at FedExForum on Friday, April 21, with support from fellow chart-toppers Three Days Grace and From Ashes to New. It also marks the first time Shinedown’s guitarist, Memphian Zach Myers, will play FedExForum.
Tickets for The Revolutions Live Tourgo on sale to the general public Friday, January 27, at 10 a.m. on ticketmaster.com or at the FedExForum Box Office. Tickets for the Blues Room at FedExForum, a private all-inclusive space, are also available for purchase.
“I walked into FedExForum in 2004 as a 21-year-old kid for the first Grizzlies home game in our new arena, and I knew from that moment on that I wanted to play there,” said Shinedown guitarist and Memphian Zach Myers. “We weren’t exactly playing arenas at that point in our career, and since then I feel like we’ve gone on to play every arena I can imagine. But coming home seems like it could be the best one yet, and I can’t wait.”
This tour announcement follows the recent release of the new music video for current rock single “Dead Don’t Die,” a rousing declaration of survival and an anthem about the resilience of the human spirit after trying times, written by Myers about front man Brent Smith.
The Planet Zero album debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 Chart and the Official UK Albums Chart, and at #1 on six other Billboard charts including Top Album Sales, Rock, Hard Rock, and Alternative Albums Charts. Featuring searing and incisive tracks like “Dead Don’t Die” and #1 rock hit “Planet Zero”, as well as uplifting and unifying songs like the soaring pop-rock anthem and #1 rock hit “Daylight” and “A Symptom Of Being Human,” Planet Zero boldly confronts the societal forces that perpetuate divisiveness while offering a restorative path forward through empathy and open conversation – ultimately serving as a reminder that it is our human connections that matter the most. The band’s video for “Daylight,” set to the Amazon Original version of the song, is a love letter to their fans and shows the impact that the song’s message – that you are never alone – had during Shinedown’s sold-out Planet Zero World Tour.

Additionally, Shinedown recently received an iHeartRadio Music Awards nomination for Rock Artist of the Year as well as for Rock Song of the Year for “Planet Zero.”
