Daughtry Convocation Center Dekalb IL NIU Campus

Daughtry is out on tour supporting their 3rd studio album, Break the Spell. The album has already been met with rave reviews and, as expected, last night showcased much of the new material off the album. Their previous albums Daughtry and Leave This Town lead to the band snagging top music awards and nominations.  They took home several American Music Awards for Breakthrough Artist, Best Adult Contemporary Artist, Best Pop/Rock Album, as well as being nominated for several Grammys, and numerous Billboard Music Awards.  It’s no doubt that band is back and ready to meet the success of their new album head on and they are doing it the best way they know how…touring. Daughtry’s Break the Spell 2012 tour started Tuesday night at University of Illinois’ Assembly Hall in Champaign, Illinois.  It really is only beginning of this hefty summer tour that is set to end June 13th in Austin, Texas.

Daughtry Convocation Center Dekalb IL NIU CampusDaughtry started the night off on the right foot as the band hit the stage promptly at 9 p.m.  Newcomers SafetySuit had the crowd warmed up and ready for Daughtry to hit the stage.  Chris Daughtry can sing a tune and his live show is much like any of the Daughtry records.  It’s a true test to hear a band live to see exactly how much the production engineer at the studio altered vocals and sounds.  Chris passed the test of talent and didn’t skip a beat last night.

The night was filled with many new songs from Break the Spell including the self-title track, “Renegade,” and “Crazy” to just name a few. Chris informed the crowd that Break the Spell was the new record they had out, yet I am sure 99% of the people in the arena knew that factoid. After he mentioned the new album he told the crowd that they were going to be perform many of the new songs off the album and he nonchalantly added with a smile, “some old ones too.”   Chris introduced “Outta My Head” as their upcoming single and noted, “This is probably my favorite song off the new album.”Daughtry Convocation Center Dekalb IL NIU Campus

While Chris and the guys were on top of their performance, the sound wasn’t.  The Convocation Center at the NIU campus is an arena that was meant for sports not concerts.  The empty seats behind the band were a contributing factor to fans inability to really hear Chris’ vocals, especially if not seated directly in front of the stage.  The sound bounced around so much it was a bit distracting.  Don’t take this as a jab at the band, as it was more circumstantial and the show really needs a backdrop behind the stage to prevent that from happening again. However, I did expected a bit more stage production for this tour as the band has a huge following, numerous accolades, and 2.4 million followers on Facebook alone. The band had a much stripped down rock show, where there usually is nothing wrong with that, but they are playing arena’s where there is a lot of space around them and they could have used some visuals or even a “light show” to enhance the experience.  Yet maybe I am still just a bit bitter about the sound.

While I am a music critic, I really mean nothing when the crowd speaks for themselves.  Even without a pop and circumstance, the loyal Daughtry fans loved the night and the mix of the old as well as new material.  The Break the Spell Tour is one to see before the summer ends. Tour dates and photos from the show are below.

SafetySuit Dekalb IL Convocation Center NIU

SafetySuit is riding high with their sophomore album hitting the #1 spot on iTunes the week of its release.   This pop/rock band from Tennessee also is celebrating their current spot as opener for Daughtry on the Break the Spell 2012 tour.

SafetySuit Dekalb IL Convocation Center NIULast night was the second stop opening for Daughtry as they hit the Convocation Center on the NIU campus.  The show took place in the arena that isn’t ideal for concerts.  Part of me feels pretty bad for SafetySuit as it took the crowd a while to warm up to them.  This is no knock to the band as they were amazing. I blame it more on the venue as the sound bounced around and made fans feel like they were in a less intimate space than they actually were.  I hope for future gigs on this tour the show gets a backdrop on the stage to help provide a solution to that sound problem, as the empty seats behind the stage only made the sound worse.  For that, I feel bad for the guys as it took the crowd to the tail end of their set to get off their feet and give back the energy the band was feeding the crowd.

SafetySuit’s “These Times” Music Video

The highlight of the set was their current single, “These Times,” where the music video is a compilation of fan submitted videos portraying their own hard times. The prelude to the song was Douglas sending out a message to those who are currently enduring tough circumstances, “These times are hard but they will pass.” Also a strong point of the night was the cover of “Hallelujah.”  It was after “Hallelujah” when Douglas jumped off stage and was in the pit serenading the front rows.  This is when the crowd started to get on their feet, as Douglas also reminded those in the arena that this was, in fact, a rock show.  It also didn’t take long for Douglas to leave the pit and greet fans with floor seats.  He really knows how to get the crowd pumped.

The set ended with “Stay,” one of the songs that helped launch their career.  It’s just too bad it took the crowd so long to catch the goodness SafetySuit was giving as the crowd was left wanting more.

DAUGHTRY Unveils Album Art And Track Listing For Break The Spell

Daughtry-BreakTheSpell-AlbumArt

October 6, 2011 – Los Angeles, CA – DAUGHTRY have revealed additional details including album artwork and track listing for its eagerly anticipated album, Break The Spell, out November 21st from 19 Recordings/RCA Records. The long awaited third album from the multi-platinum selling rock band includes the chart-climbing “Renegade” and ” Crawling Back To You,” which is well on its way to becoming the band’s fifth No. 1 at the Hot AC format.  The new record will be released 5 years to the day from the release of their multi-platinum debut album in 2006.

Break The Spell is a powerful collection of hooks and strong, rhythmic choruses that provide the perfect backdrop for frontman Chris Daughtry’s emotionally resonant voice. Every song was co-written by Chris with either one of his band-mates (guitarists Josh Steely ,  Brian Craddock and bassist Josh Paul) or collaborators such as Marti Frederiksen, Busbee and Bret James. Produced by Howard Benson, who worked on DAUGHTRY’S two previous chart-topping albums, Break The Spell allows the band room to grow musically while still maintaining its knack for distinctive, melodic pop-rock anthems.

Daughtry have scored 4 No. 1 hits, garnered 4 Grammy nominations, sold over 7 million albums and played sold out concerts around the world in less than 4 years. Daughtry’s self-titled debut was the fastest selling rock debut in Soundscan history and its follow up Leave This Town marked the quintet’s second consecutive No. 1 album. In addition to recording and touring, Daughtry is also dedicated to using its position to raise awareness about a number of charitable causes.

Daughtry Headlines Inaugural Rock USA Festival

Chris Daughtry Rock USAOshkosh, WI has been home to Country USA since 1995 and its promoters decided to add a three day Rock USA festival for 2011. The grounds were in great shape despite Country USA having turned into mudfest two weeks prior. Organizers brought in wood chips by the truck load to remedy Ford Festival grounds, and additional barricades were instilled in an attempt to make the grounds safer. Security was obviously heightened with a notable presence of dark-green clad sheriffs to police the site, perhaps due to fear of uncertainty amongst the rock attendees.

A mostly older crowd came early to greet Rockford’s Cheap Trick and recollect their earlier years. Hello There, an ideal opening song, got the crowd’s attention and Cheap Trick never let go. The crowd remained engaged with blast from the past hits I Want You to Want Me, Surrender and Gonna Raise Hell. They gave a solid performance, and Rick Nielson tried his best to appear youthful bouncing around the stage while striking his customary poses. Their 13-song set closed with Dream Police.

Click on Thumbnails to enlarge images:


Puddle of Mudd followed Cheap Trick.  While prepared to hit the stage with a vengeance they instead hit a brick wall when vocalist Wes Scantlin saw mostly empty VIP seats and quickly realized that most of their fans were at least 50 yards from the stage (behind the general admission barricade).  Scantlin became deflated quickly due to the sea of white chairs that segregated the fans and noted “those who have money and those who do not.” He grew more disgruntled as their set progressed, to the point of lecturing the crowd about segregation and a bit of American history. There was little energy from the crowd, and those who were energetic couldn’t get close enough to the stage to ignite the apathetic Scantlin. He took multiple pauses and what appeared to be a brief smoke break during the set, but remained on stage for their contracted 1-hour set. They managed to get through fan expected tunes, PyschoShe Hates Me, Drift and Die and Blurry before exiting.  Having seen them perform before, this was not a typical Puddle of Mudd set and many of the crowd empathized Scantlin’s attitude.

Buckcherry might have been the victor on the night; they had the most forgiving time slot and best crowd participation. They took stage at 9:00 pm when the crowd had just enough of a buzz going that many of them probably felt pretty good but weren’t sloppy drunk. Buckcherry was the first stereotypical rock band of the festival, and made sure to include a vast amount of profanity, devil horns, middle fingers, and mention of sex and drugs. Vocalist, Josh Todd was a force and seemed possessed with a psychotic amount of energy that fueled the crowd.  Opening with Dead was an oxymoron, given that the crowd became instantly alive. Favorites of the night were SorryLit Up, and Crazy Bitch.

Closing out the night was 2011 People’s Choice, Choice Music: Rock Band nominee Daughtry. Daughtry has quickly risen to success since their debut album dropped in 2006. Amongst being a singer/song writer/musician, Chris Daughtry is also a self proclaimed comic book enthusiast. Accordingly, they took the stage to the sounds of an instrumental fit for a superhero that built until they broke into their opening, heavier tune Everytime You Turn Around. The momentum continued through What I Want and Ghost of Me. One of the most impressive parts of Daughtry’s show was their ability to perform while remaining appropriate for all ages. Unfortunately, an inebriated crowd did not necessarily share that value. The crowd became fewer as the night progressed and the song tempos slowed. Daughtry still treated the undeserving and chatty crowd to a new song, Rescue Me, which Chris performed acoustic and solo. The song was emotion filled and displayed a great range of powerful vocals. It will be exciting to hear the finished product that should have increased depth on the final recording. Chris stated that their hope is to have new music released by the end of the year. Daughtry is only playing a few select dates while they are in the studio recording their third album.  As such, this show lacked in production and gimmicks that may have been more enticing for this particular crowd.  Fortunately it was fronted by Chris’s strong vocals; and the lack of fire and explosions actually highlighted an incredible evening of musicianship. Daughtry’s set wrapped up at midnight with You Don’t Belong.  However, true fans held out and after a few minutes of screaming from the rapidly diminishing crowd, and they re-emerged with a two song encore of Home and Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell.

Click on thumbnails to enlarge images:

Maybe an 11:00pm start is too late or the lineup should have been more consistent. While Daughtry and Buckcherry both put on great shows, they are at completely different ends of the spectrum for what their live show will showcase. Overall opening day still seemed to be a success based on ticket sales, but it definitely needed some tweaking when it came to execution and daily lineup selection.  Cheap Trick also would have fit better with the second day set that consisted of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Journey, perhaps moving Candlebox into the opening day.

Chicago Cheers For Another American Idol In Chicago – Daughtry

Daughtry
Sears Centre – Hoffman Estates, IL
5/27/10

The suspense for Daughtry was intense. From the moment the lights first came on and we heard the Batman Theme song start, we knew this was gonna be a good show. Too bad there was a drunken crazed hippy chic that was distracting me throughout the entire show with her acid dancing in her short shorts, oversized tank top & long nappy blonde hair. But I digress. Daughtry rocked out some of his top hits and even did a few covers. Daughtry brought us back to the 80’s with songs from Phil Collins to Billy Idol. Jason Wade from Lifehouse even made a cameo on stage to sing Home. Chris Daughtry make light of coming from a small town of 100 people and knew he wanted to go places. He even joked about his Uncle owning a gas station in town but still had to pay. Everyone showed up for Daughtry! The crowd was filled with screaming teenagers, mothers & fathers. This American Idol really brought out families out for a night full of Rock. Overall it was very fitting to see Daughtry in Hoffman Estates after Lee DeWyze’s win on American Idol from Wednesday night.

Chris Daughtry at the Vic Theatre in Chicago

Chris Daughtry
The Vic Theatre – Chicago, IL
8/8/2009

I’ve been a fan Of Chris Daughtry since I first heard him sing “I Walk the Line” on American Idol in 2006. Although he did not win the competition he definitely won the hearts of many across America. Since American Idol, Chris Daughtry formed his rock band “Daughtry.”  The North Carolina based band includes Chris Daughtry – Vocals, Josh Paul – Bass, Joey Barnes -Drums, Brian Craddock – Guitar, and Josh Steely – Guitar.

Their self-titled debut album was released in 2006. The disc reached number one for two non-consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200, out-sold Idol winner Taylor Hicks’ debut album, sold more than four million copies, and was named the number one selling album of 2007 by Billboard. Their album is also the fastest-selling debut rock album in Soundscan history. The first single from the album, “It’s Not Over”, was the eighth most played song across all formats on U.S. radio in 2007, and their second single from the album, “Home”, was the tenth most played song in the U.S. of 2007.The band’s second album, Leave This Town, was released on July 14, 2009. The first single, “No Surprise,” was released on May 5. With their debut album they have sold 6.1 million worldwide and sold over 7.52 million in singles.

The band has been touring non-stop since January 2007. They have performed across the U.S. and Canada, along with shows in the UK, Germany, and Singapore. They opened for Nickelback for a brief stint, Puddle of Mudd, Finger Eleven and have featured 12 Stones, Cinder Road, Small Town Sleeper, Day of Fire and Eve to Adam as opening acts. On May 27, 2007, the band performed during the Indianapolis 500 Pre-Race show on ABC, and headlined the 2007 Summerfest at the Marcus amphitheater in Milwaukee, WI with a crowd of more than 15,000 on July 6.

Daughtry has played shows in Australia, as well as the United Kingdom and across Europe for the first time and opened for Bon Jovi for several shows in November. They were featured as the opening act during Bon Jovi’s Lost Highway Tour. The band began a sold out tour with Bon Jovi on February 18, 2008 all the way through the end of April. Chris even joined Bon Jovi onstage every night to perform their hit, Blaze of Glory.” Daughtry’s headlining tour alone in 2007 raked in around 10 million dollars.

And Now he is on tour again for 2009, Daughtry filled the Vic theatre in Chicago on August 8th 2009 with fans from ages as young as 1 years old to some really old people, ha ha and every age in-between. Fans danced and sang along to almost every single song they sang, and stayed on their feet thee entire time, swinging beers in one hand and waiving the other. The show was a lot of fun and very entertaining. I give the show 4 stars.
