Collective Soul, Soul Asylum, and 3 Doors Down are headed, appropriately, to Freedom Hill



All aboard The Rock & Roll Express... tour. Sigh.

Soul Asylum broke our hearts in '92 with "Runaway Train," a song about homeless youth. Collective Soul made it big in '95 for a song about suicide. And 3 Doors Down shamelessly played President Trump's inauguration and are still riding out the success of having written a song about Superman or something. Needless to say, one of these things is not like the other — and they're all coming to Freedom Hill on Tuesday, Aug. 7.

ANYWAY, this ragtag team of alt-rockers has more than 30 million albums sold, billions of streams, and 12 hits combined. The chances that you will get to hear all 12 of the aforementioned hits during their 36 city run is pretty high.

Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Friday, March 30 at 10 a.m. local time and can be purchased here.
