World renowned rock band 3 Doors Down is set to headline Freedom Fest 2018. The massive Independence Day celebration is expected by some to be the biggest yet, and 3 Doors Down will cap off a day of food, fun, and rock n’ roll.

“We are looking forward to the show,” said guitarist Chris Henderson. “I love Louisiana and have a lot of friends that live there.” Henderson and his bandmates have been rocking together, touring the world, and playing for sold out crowds since.

The band is known for chart topping smash hits such as “Kryptonite”, “When I’m Gone”, and “Here Without You.” Henderson said that while he enjoys playing all their music there is one song he personally enjoys playing the most.

“There are so many great songs we’ve done over the years, but one of my personal favorites to play is Duck and Run,” he said.  “That song is so up tempo and fast paced, which makes it very fun to play.”

Freedom Fest 2018 is set to be a history making show as it will be the first time that 3 Doors Down has played on Fort Polk. They are excited to perform for the soldiers, their families, and the Fort Polk community.

“These soldiers do so much for us, it is an honor for us to give a little back to them and their families. It’s an honor for us to perform for them. I hope everyone comes out and has a good time at the show.”

After Freedom Fest, the band will continue their Rock and Roll Express tour where they will perform the bands Soul Asylum, and Collective Soul. Shows that Henderson has described as “nonstop hits all night long.”

3 Doors Down will perform at 8:30 p.m. on June 30 at HQ Field. Freedom Fest 2018 will also feature performances by LoCash, and The Molly Ringwalds. Gates will open at 3:30 p.m. with shuttles taking people on base from Honor Field.
