3 Doors Down and Daughtry will rock the Erie Insurance Arena on Feb. 5.
Each one will play a full set; this is a co-headlining tour. We won’t know who closes until the show gets closer.
Aranda will open.
Both artists have played Erie before. 3 Doors Down last played the arena when it was called Tullio Arena with Shinedown and Seether in 2003. Daughtry was fresh off “American Idol” when he sold out the Warner in 2007.
3 Doors Down released “The Greatest Hits” in November with three new songs, plus such hits as “Kryptonite,” “When I’m Gone” and “Here Without You.”
Daughtry’s third album, “Break the Spell,” was released in November 2011 and spawned several album-rock hits, including “Renegade” and “Crawling Back to You.”

Billboard reports the Stones’ final show on Saturday — the one that will be broadcast live on pay-per-view will feature several guests: Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga and the Black Keys. Sounds good to me. As previously noted, the Stones will also play the 12-12-12 concert in New York. Paul McCartney will close that one. The Who, Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Bon Jovi and more are also on board.
