The 2013 run marks Shinedown's return since the 2010 tour debut, making the band the first to headline multiple years. The Florida-based rock outfit continues support last year's "Amaryllis," which peaked at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Alternative Albums, Hard Rock Albums and Rock Albums charts.

Last year's excursion featured Evanescence, Chevelle, Halestorm and New Medicine.
