Former Three Days Grace vocalist Adam Gontier is starting to re-enter the fray as a solo artist and one of his first shows back will be as part of the 2013 Rockapalooza Festival in Jackson, Mich. this June. Gontier and masked rockers Mushroomhead are the latest acts to join the lineup, which was revealed earlier this year.
In the 10 days or so since the announcement of Three Days Grace's split with frontman Adam Gontier, more and more details have surfaced about their parting of the ways. Gontier is the latest to unveil more about his exit from the band, stating that it was more of creative decision, but also reiterating that he does have health issues.
The recent exit of Three Days Grace singer Adam Gontier from the group shocked many in the music industry, but probably no one more than the rest of his bandmates. After offering a very brief statement on Gontier's exit and revealing that My Darkest Days frontman Matt Walst would be filling in on their upcoming tour with Shinedown, more and more details have begun to leak out.
While singer Adam Gontier shocked his fans by announcing his departure from Three Days Grace yesterday (Jan. 9), he's not retiring from the stage entirely. The vocalist will play his first show since leaving the band next Thursday (Jan. 17) as part of the special acoustic 'Rock for Recovery' benefit for victims of Hurricane Sandy at New York's Gramercy Theatre.
