aughtry 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 bandâ€™s Grammy-nominated and quintuple-platinum debut.
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. The 13-date tour will kick off August 2 in Orlando, FL and end August 22 in Las Vegas, NV. Tickets go on sale July 11. Daughtry will offer limited VIP packages as a pre-sale July 8th – 10th. Additionally, the band will also give a free ticket to the first 50 fans in each market who pre-order LEAVE THIS TOWN from www.DaughtryOfficial.com.
“This club tour is a thank you to our loyal fans. Its 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: â€œThe surprisingly diverse results include everything from the clubby â€˜Supernaturalâ€™ to the fiddle-driven Vince Gill duet â€˜Tennessee Line.â€™â€ â€¦â€â€™Call Your Nameâ€™ [is] an anthem reminiscent of â€˜November Rain,â€™ complete with a stirring key change, falsetto vocal runs and an explosive Slash-style guitar climax.â€
Billboard: â€œAnd 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.â€
Daughtry will begin an extensive North American tour this fall.
