Following the success of its nationally televised New Year’s Eve performance in Times Square, Daughtry recently revealed plans for the second leg of its U.S. arena tour, which will be making a stop in Las Vegas at the Orleans Arena on Thursday, April 29. Tickets go on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m.
Singer Chris Daughtry, bassist Josh Paul, drummer Joey Barnes, and guitarists Brian Craddock and Josh Steely will be joined by special guests Lifehouse and opening band Cavo.
Daughtry launched its first-ever arena tour last fall, making stops all over the American heartland before taking a break in late December. The group is currently on tour in the U.K. and Europe.
As the band prepares for another round of headlining U.S. arenas with Lifehouse and Cavo, Chris Daughtry says the excitement has not worn off. “Growing up, you dream about singing one of your songs in front of a packed house,” he says. “I still get chills when we’re playing and I hear the crowd singing louder than we are.”
The tour announcement comes as Daughtry’s latest single “Life After You,” continues to perform well on the charts. The song is the second from the group’s sophomore album Leave This Town, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last summer. The album’s first single, “No Surprise,” became the band’s fourth No. 1 hit and the band’s third single is scheduled to be released this spring.
