Daughtry: October 2018

Back in SA, with Jesse Clegg Supporting!

Big Concerts confirmed that Daughtry will be returning to South Africa performing in Cape Town on 25th October 2018 at Grand Arena, GrandWest and 27th October 2018 in Pretoria at the Sun Arena at Time Square in support of their brand new album Cage to Rattle. Daughtry will be supported by very special guest Jesse Clegg, in this Big Concert Experience, presented by Bok Radio, Jacaranda FM and Channel 24. Another Big Concerts Experience.

As the frontman for the band bearing his name, Daughtry has become one of the most visible and consistent rock & roll torchbearers of the 21st Century. Since rising to prominence on the fifth season of American Idol, he has released four albums, all of which reached the Billboard Top Ten and have combined sales over 8 million copies in the U.S.

Daughtry’s self-titled debut was the best-selling album of 2007, which contained four Top Twenty hit singles including the Grammy-nominated smash “It’s Not Over.” Leave This Town also reached Number One in 2009, while 2011’s Break the Spell was certified gold. His group’s most recent record, 2013’s Baptized, featured the platinum-selling “Waiting for Superman,” which the singer points to as a turning point in his song writing.

Daughtry and his band have been performing together for over a decade. As the band continues work on its fifth album (which Daughtry describes in its early stages as having a “bluesy, almost rootsy undertone to it”), they look to contemporaries like Maroon 5 and Train as examples of acts able to maintain their relevance while rock & roll faces an uphill struggle in the mass media. “Those guys are inspirational, showing that you can come back and have a strong presence, even if what you’re known for doing is having a hard time,” he says.

Ten years after launching with a massive splash, Chris Daughtry claims that he and the band have grown the most on stage, and that it’s altered his whole sense of his work. “When we first came out, I’d only known what I’d seen,” he says. “I didn’t know how to be vulnerable, with no pretence. Now it’s walk onstage and, especially in our acoustic shows, just be flat-out honest and open. It’s really helped me realize that’s actually what fans want—they want 100 percent honesty and feeling like they got to know you better.”

Daughtry will be supported by special guest Jesse Clegg. Jesse has been nominated for four South African Music Awards, has released six Top 10 singles as well as 3 albums ‘When I Wake Up’, ‘Life on Mars’ and ‘Things Unseen’.
