Shinedown Maps Out Nine 'Intimate' Shows For Next May

Shinedown has announced nine intimate "An Evening With Shinedown" live dates, kicking off on May 6th in New Orleans and closing out on May 22nd in Kansas City. The shows will offer fans an exclusive, up-close-and-personal live experience, similar to the three intimate, year-end gigs the band is doing at the House of Blues in Orlando on December 27th, 28th and 29th. Shinedown has done acoustic shows throughout its career and frontman Brent Smith told us a while back that it's always fun: "Yeah, we love it, man. We still don't strip the songs down, though, even when we play 'em acoustic. We still rock the hell out of 'em. But I mean, it's a lot more intimate, it gets more personal, you know, with the audience. They're like, it's really up close and, you know, it kind of gives the audience a chance to dive into the band's psyche and we love it. We love doin' it. We never say no to it." : May 6 - New Orleans, LA - The Fillmore May 7 - Atlanta, GA - Coca Cola Roxy Theatre May 8 - Atlanta, GA - Coca Cola Roxy Theatre May 10 - Myrtle Beach, SC - House of Blues May 11 - Myrtle Beach, SC - House of Blues May 13 - Nashville, TN - Ryman Auditorium May 14 - Nashville, TN - Ryman Auditorium May 21 - Madison, WI - The Sylvee May 22 - Kansas City, MO - Midland Theatre
