Sears Centre – Hoffman Estates, IL
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.
