Theory Of A Deadman and Saving Abel will join 3 Doors Down for this year's benefit concert for The Better Life Foundation.

The seventh annual concert and silent auction for their Mobile, AL-based charity, will take place at Horseshoe Casino/Hotel on Friday, November 12 and culminating with a live performance on Saturday, November 13. The 2-day event has moved location from Biloxi to Tunica and as a bonus for fans, is earlier than in years past. The event is sponsored by the Mississippi Army National Guard and boasts a complete schedule of events including Charity Ride, Clay Shoot, Silent Auction and live performance of 3 Doors Down with special guests Theory Of A Deadman and Saving Abel.

The Better Life Foundation has donated close to $2,000,000 to various charities nationwide since it's inception in 2003, though the main focus is on Gulf Coast organizations. Past 'friends' who have joined 3 Doors Down for the annual event include Lynryd Skynyrd, Staind, Sara Evans, Shinedown, Hinder, James Otto, Big Kenny of Big and Rich, Aaron Lewis of Staind, Ed Kowalczyk of Live, Alter Bridge, Tracy Lawrence and Switchfoot.
