Concert News: 3 Doors Down, Daughtry coming to Fresno

A December rock doubleheader is coming to Fresno’s Save Mart Center3 Doors Down and Daughtry.

The two rock bands announced their co-headlining tour on Monday morning, and Fresno is on the itinerary for Dec. 13. P.O.D. opens. Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, costing $29.50, $39.50 and $49.50.

They’ll be available at the Save Mart Center box office, at Ticketmaster locations, including many Save Mart supermarkets, online at or by calling (800) 745-3000.

It’ll be 3 Doors Down’s first time at Save Mart Center. For Daughtry, it’ll be a second trip. He played there in 2010.

Some people might think this is a homecoming for Daughtry bass player Josh Paul, who lives in Clovis. But it, in fact, is not. Paul recently announced he is leaving Daughtry and his run with the band is ending before the upcoming U.S. tour.

New Daughtry single — whatcha think?


I know what you’re thinking: Since when does Daughtry releasing a new single warrant a Beehive post? Since the band’s bass player Josh Paul moved to Clovis a couple years ago.

Paul and his Daughtry cohorts are prepping their new album, and released “Renegade” today on their website. To make it even more of local note: Paul co-wrote the song with Daughtry.

Can’t embed it here, but you can listen on Daughtry’s site.

I’ll say this: It has a bit more gusto than you might expect from Daughtry.

To-Do Tonight … and the week ahead


Daughtry is in town tonight. For many, it’s a chance to see the man is the most successful “American Idol” runner-up. But for Daughtry bass player Josh Paul, it’s a homecoming.

Paul (pictured far left) lives in Clovis, and is the opposite of the “local guy made good” story we usually hear. He’s from SoCal, but settled in Clovis with his family a few years ago. Read all about Paul, his local connections, and his past in bands such as Suicidal Tendencies in this feature story I wrote about him from last week’s Bee.
