The second leg of 3 Doors Down's co-headline tour with Daughtry came to a close as the tour wrapped up at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wis. on March 6. The show concluded roughly eight weeks of dates going back to November 2012, not including a break for the holidays. Both bands played lengthy 90-minutes sets, giving the fans a double dose of music for their money.

The show was a bittersweet ending to the successful tour as Chris Daughtry, Brad Arnold and opening act Aranda all expressed fond feelings for one another during their time together on the road. Arnold said, "I've been on a lot of tours and I've never met a friend like that man, he is my brother," referring to Chris Daughtry.
Touring on "The Greatest Hits" album released late last year, it also features three new tracks "One Light," "There's a Life" and "Goodbyes." Given that the collection highlights their nine chart-topping singles, they performed the album in its entirety sans "Be Like That" during their set. Arnold referred to their work, saying "Thank you all. I'd never thought we'd have a hit, and here we stand with a greatest hits CD by the grace of God."
The show was well produced, easily filling the cavernous Resch Center with well-mixed sound and a stage presentation that was rich with light coming from every direction. Arnold's vocals were clean, showing no signs of wear despite being the last night of the tour. Todd Harrell constantly moved around the front of the stage, slapping his bass and motioning to fans in the first few rows. Chris Henderson and Chet Roberts traded riffs, turning it up a notch when they covered Megadeth's "Symphony of Destruction."
Chris Daughtry had been performing "Landing in London" with 3 Doors Down throughout the tour but was absent on this night. Some speculated that Bob Seger might make a special appearance, given that he sang on the original album track and was scheduled to play the same venue tomorrow night. Seger did not show but Daughtry finally joined the band during "Kryptonite" during their first encore.
As they closed out the night, Arnold dedicated "When I'm Gone" to the military and said, "It's a salute to every man and woman who serves our country." An American flagged waved on the rear video monitor that formed their backdrop. The band took time to shake hands and sign a few autographs for fans near the front after the show.
