Daughtry Announces Arena Tour Dates

Chris Daughtry and his band are just about done with their summer tour, but they’re so popular, that they’ve added a whole new slew of arena dates! The band is on the road in support of their chart-topping album Leave This Town, and now they’ve extended their tour all the way through the end of the year.

According to Billboard, Daughtry will be playing at arenas all over the country, kicking things off on October 19th in Topeka, Kansas. That’ll leave them about two months of down time before they pick up where they left off. Daughtry will be wrapping up the summer tour this Saturday with a show at Pure in Las Vegas.

Band leader Chris Daughtry says they have some tricks up their sleeve, and are excited to upgrade to bigger venues. He says, “It's the first time where we actually get to use some big production. So maybe some pyro, who knows. It would be kind of fun to mess around with that. We're working on it right now, designing some different stage ideas and maybe try to incorporate some of the artwork of the record. We're messing around with the concept right now, so...it's gonna be a surprise."

Daughtry has certainly earned their success this year. Leave This Town was released in mid-July, entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 and has remained in the top ten ever since.
