MNET, 94.7 Highveld Stereo and 94.5 Kfm are excited to announce that American rock band Daughtry will be performing in South Africa for the first time ever during October 2010. The tour kicks off at the Grand Arena, Grand West Casino and Entertainment World in Cape Town on Wednesday 27th October 2010 and culminates at the Coca-Cola Dome Johannesburg on Friday 29th October 2010.
Daughtry released their self-titled debut album in 2006. A hit in both artistic and commercial terms, the GRAMMY®-nominated album spawned a trio of #1 songs (It’s Not Over, Home, and Feels Like Tonight), sold over 5 millions albums worldwide and was the fastest-selling debut rock album in Soundscan history. Produced by Howard Benson (All-American Rejects, My Chemical Romance), released by 19 Entertainment/RCA Records, Daughtry earned multiple wins at the American Music Awards, the World Music and the Billboard Music Awards.
Daughtry topped the charts with its second platinum release Leave This Town (2009). The album entered at the top of the Billboard 200, making it the band’s second #1 album. Its first single, “No Surprise,” extended the group’s extraordinary streak of #1 hits to four and current single “September” is following the same path. Leave This Town again produced by Howard Benson mixes powerful rock to hushed ballads and emotional mid-tempo rockers. It also includes the country-influenced “Tennessee Line,” a track Chris Daughtry wrote with guitarist Brian Craddock that features vocal harmonies by country-music superstar Vince Gill. In addition to writing with all his band mates, Chris also collaborated with some of rock’s savviest song smiths for the album, penning “Learn My Lesson” with Mitch Allan and “Ghost of Me” with music producer Brian Howes; both of whom co-wrote songs on Daughtry’s debut. Leave This Town also includes stellar contributions from Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger.
Daughtry has made an impressive run of television appearances including NFL’s Super Tailgate Party at Super Bowl XLIV, NCAA Men’s Final Four Coke Zero Countdown and Pep Rally, The Country Music Awards, American Music Awards, Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Dallas Cowboy Thanksgiving Day Game, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Eve show in New York City’s Times Square and are invited back for the second consecutive year on the Today Show Toyota Outdoor Concert Series.
