Daughtry will embark upon a short club tour this August, starting just weeks after the release of LEAVE THIS TOWN (19 Recordings/RCA Music Group), the follow-up to the band’s Grammy-nominated and quintuple-platinum debut. The tour will make a stop at Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace on Saturday, August 22 at 8pm. Tickets will be $20 and includes admission to Pure Nightclub after the show for guests 21 and over (younger guests must exit the venue).
Singer Chris Daughtry, bassist Josh Paul, drummer Joey Barnes, and guitarists Brian Craddock and Josh Steely will use the intimate shows to perform many of the songs from the new album on stage for the first time. David Hodges will open up for Daughtry at Pure Nightclub.
“This club tour is a thank you to our loyal fans. It’s a great way for them to see us up close and, more importantly, at a cheap price,” says singer Chris Daughtry.
More than a month before its official release, LEAVE THIS TOWN is already generating considerable buzz for its musical range.
Rolling Stone: “The surprisingly diverse results include everything from the clubby ‘Supernatural’ to the fiddle-driven Vince Gill duet ‘Tennessee Line.'” …”‘Call Your Name’ [is] an anthem reminiscent of ‘November Rain,’ complete with a stirring key change, falsetto vocal runs and an explosive Slash-style guitar climax.”
Billboard: “And while Daughtry’s voice and rock riffs still play center stage to most of the album’s tracks, several songs take some creative chances. Daughtry wrote “You Don’t Belong” on his own; it’s a hard-driving song that wouldn’t sound out of place on an Alice in Chains album.”
Tickets go on-sale Saturday, July 11 at 10am. Tickets are available at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com or charge-by-phone at 800-745-3000. Tickets are $20 and are subject to service fees.
