Three Days Grace, joined by Adelitas Way and Otherwise, pay tribute to our nation’s heroes at the Rock for Heroes Benefit Concert in Charlotte on Sept. 9. Hosted by the Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre, the show benefits The Independence Fund. The nonprofit organization “provides mobility and wellness programs for wounded veterans and their caregivers to help them regain their independence.”
Co-founder and drummer of Three Days Grace Neil Sanderson commented on the show on the band’s Facebook page.
It’s going to be an amazing show. We’re going to raise a ton of money and it’s all going to go directly to support severally wounded veterans and help them regain their independence.
The platinum-selling Canadian rock band catapulted onto the scene in 2003. Three Days Grace’s first single “I Hate Everything About You” fueled their push for a record deal and eventually landed the band with Jive Records. The tune began to garner extensive radio airplay, shot up the Billboard charts and featured on numerous video game soundtracks.
The success train never really stopped for the Canadians. The early triumph propelled Three Days Grace to four additional albums, most notably One-X, which is certified triple-platinum in the United States. Additionally, they’ve sold more than six million records in the U.S. and their catalog of #1 hits features over 10 different tracks. The hard-hitting and hypnotic anthems have powered Three Days Grace to countless nominations for some of the most coveted awards in music and even earned them Billboard‘s “Rock Artist of the Year” in 2007. Over time, Three Days Grace became one of the most recognizable bands of the mid-2000s and one that the majority of rock enthusiasts connect with.
