Big Concerts announced on Tuesday that Daughtry will be returning to South Africa. Chris Daughtry and his band that have been together for over a decade, will be performing in Cape Town on 25th October 2018 at Grand Arena, GrandWest and 27th October 2018 in Pretoria at the Sun Arena at Time Square in support of their brand new album ‘Cage to Rattle’. Daughtry will be supported by very special guest Jesse Clegg.
Since Daughtry’s appearance on the fifth season of American Idol he has released four albums, all of which reached the Billboard Top Ten and have combined sales over 8 million copies in the U.S. The band continues to work on the fifth album which is set to be released 27 July.
Over the past ten years Daughtry believes the band has grown and is able to bring more on stage for his fans to enjoy.“When we first came out, I’d only known what I’d seen,” he says. “I didn’t know how to be vulnerable, with no pretence. Now it’s walk onstage and, especially in our acoustic shows, just be flat-out honest and open. It’s really helped me realise that’s actually what fans want—they want 100 percent honesty and feeling like they got to know you better.”
Daughtry’s self-titled debut was the best-selling album of 2007, which contained four Top Twenty hit singles including the Grammy-nominated smash “It’s Not Over.” Leave This Townalso reached Number One in 2009, while 2011’s Break the Spell was certified gold. His group’s most recent record, 2013’s Baptized, featured the platinum-selling “Waiting for Superman,” which the singer points to as a turning point in his song writing.
