The Mississippi based rockers followed Bon Jovi's footstep as they will also headline one of the main events for the Major League Baseball's All-Star-Game Festivities.
After Bon Jovi, now 3 Doors Down are also set to contribute themselves for the upcoming Major League Baseball All-Star- Festivities. 3 Doors have been taped to perform as the opening act at the MLB's 2008 Home Run Derby on July 14 at the Yankee Stadium.
The rockers will be playing two songs at the annual event, held just before the All-Star game on July 15, which are "It's Not My Time" and "Kryptonite". One song from the band and also the whole event will be aired Live by ESPN. Meanwhile, the tickets to watch the event along with the band's special performance reportedly have already sold out.
Commenting about their participation on the All-Star-Festivities, the band through their frontman Brad Arnold said, "We're particularly thrilled to play at such a great event. To be able to also tip our hats and say thanks to Yankee Stadium is an additional honor. Home Run Derby is always one of the most fun sporting events to watch, and to be able to perform for the fans who will be savoring every moment will be a real treasured moment for all of us."
Not only preparing to perform at the Home Run Derby, 3 Doors are also gearing up to hit the road this summer to stage their summer tour called "3 Doors Down's Summer Tour with Staind and Hinder". The tour, which is being sponsored by famous chewing gum company Wrigley, will kick off on July 9 in Maryland.
