Tuesday, September 11

Recommended: 3 Doors Down + Collective Soul @ The Fillmore

Moving right along to Tuesday night, rock bands 3 Doors Down and Collective Soul are taking over the Fillmore. Since 2000, 3 Doors Down has given us hits such as “Kryptonite” and “Here Without You,” which both racked up millions of streams and hours of radio playtime. In the ’90s, Collective Soul gave us anthemic songs such as “Shine” and “The World I Know.” These two bands are joining forces on Tuesday night in what has the potential to be a killer show.
