Gontier will share the bill with singer-songwriter Martin Sexton.
A man of 'Grace'
Gontier is no stranger to sharing the stage with Sexton, since the two were on tour earlier this year. For this solo performance, he'll certainly whip Three Days Grace fans into a frenzy at the show — and for good reason; Three Days Grace has four studio albums under their belt — the latest being "Transit of Venus," which dropped in October. In addition, the band has sold more than $5 million records, of which two albums went platinum ("Three Days Grace" and "One-X") and another went gold ("Life Starts Now").
'Rain' for Wilmington
January saw the release of Sexton's "Fall Like Rain," a five-song EP that's his latest album; it includes a cover of Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth."
A native of Syracuse, N.Y., and the 10th of 12 children, growing up Sexton discovered classic rock vinyl records one of his brothers left in the basement. Upon this discovery, his musical fire was lit. Sexton eventually migrated to Boston, Mass., where he began to build a following singing on the streets of Harvard Square, gradually working his way through the scene.
From 1996-2002, Sexton released the albums "Black Sheep," "The American," "Wonder Bar" and "Live Wide Open." The activity and worldwide touring behind those records laid the foundation for the career he enjoys today with an uncommonly loyal fan base. In 2007, Sexton dropped his project "Seeds," which debuted at #6 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. Then in 2010, he blessed fans with his album "Sugarcoating," which caught the attention of NBC anchor Brian Williams who sought out Sexton for an interview.
