David Hodges (Opening for Chris Daughtry)
The Vic Theatre – Chicago, IL
David Hodges, a new comer to performing in the industry opened for Daughtry on August 8th at the Vic Theatre. He grabbed the attention of all those in attendance. He had everyone in the venue asking… “Who is that?” People were so impressed by his amazing melodic tunes and harmonic vocals.
David Hodges’ name may not be familiar, but his music is. He is a third of rock group Evanescence. He co-wrote such hits as “Bring Me to Life” and “My Immortal” from the band’s debut “Fallen,” which has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide. He then went on to write and produce megahits for other artists including Kelly Clarkson (“Because of You”), Daughtry (“What About Now”) and David Auchuleta (“Crush”), but now it’s his time in the spotlight.
The songs that compose his melodically-rich Reprise debut depict a full spectrum of emotions in a passionate, complex, yet instantly accessible way. During the show people danced and sang along and when he was all done, the sold out show gave a standing ovation to the star and his band. I enjoyed him as well so I give the show 3 stars. I think he will eventually become a force to be reckoned with, just give him a little more time.
