Multi-platinum recording artist Daughtry has announced a new UK tour following the release of his fourth full-length studio album ‘Baptized’. This is Daughtry’s first headline UK dates since 2010 and will see Chris and his band perform four shows culminating at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Wednesday 26th March.
Daughtry is the rock band fronted by Chris Daughtry, finalist from American Idol Season 5 in 2005. Behind only Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry is the third-biggest selling American Idol alumnus around the world.
Baptized signals a rebirth for Chris and the band. “I want fans to keep an open mind about it,” he concludes. “The songs are very much what I do lyrically and melodically. I’ve always been a sucker for a great melody. That’s what song-writing is all about. Can people relate to this? Is it real? Is it honest? That’s what everyone should take away. It’s real and authentic. This is where I am right now.”
Chris is ready to proclaim that statement in front of packed venues around the world alongside longtime bandmates Josh Paul [bass], Brian Craddock [guitar], Josh Steely [guitar], Robin Diaz [drums] and new addition Elvio Fernandes [keyboards].
Daughtry will be coming to the following UK venues in March:
22nd March – O2 ABC, Glasgow
23rd March – The Ritz, Manchester
24th March – The Institute, Birmingham
26th March – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London
