The guys of 3 Doors Down and Collective Soul are joining forces for a major 2018 summer run

When it comes to the big names in melodic rock, 3 Doors Down and Collective Soul are at the top of the list. Now, the two bands are joining forces for an extensive 2018 summer tour, which will span a whopping 36 cities between July and September.

Collective Soul got their start in the early 1990s and ruled the radio airwaves that decade with melodic rockers such as “Shine,” “The World I Know” and “December.” They have also pushed more than 20 millions records over the years.
