American rock group Daughtry wowed South African audiences back in 2010 and today, Big Concerts confirmed that the former American Idol contestant and his band are headed back to our shores this October for two shows only. The group will perform 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.
Daughtry has always had an incredibly strong fanbase here in South Africa and their upcoming album is their first since 2013’s ‘Baptized’. The album’s lead single ‘Deep End’ was released this past weekend and sets the group’s new era into motion. The song is another anthemic banger from the group who is ready to make their comeback after a five-year absence.
Daughtry and his band have been performing together for over a decade. 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’s upcoming album ‘Cage To Rattle’ drops worldwide on the 27th of July.
