Multi-platinum rock band Daughtry is making a stop in Vegas for a one-night only event as a part of their multi-country tour.
Daughtry's most recent album, "Baptized," features hits such as "Waiting for Superman" and "Long Live Rock and Roll," which will be performed in addition to older hits from albums such as "Break the Spell" that was certified gold within four weeks of its release. During the past four years, the band has released four No. 1 hit singles and earned four Grammy Award nominations. They have sold more than 7 million albums and have played sold out concerts worldwide.
The group was formed by former "American Idol" contestant Chris Daughtry, who finished in fourth place on the television show. The band's self-titled debut album sold more than 1 million copies during its first few weeks of release, making it the fastest-selling debut rock album in Soundscan history. It also reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
Born in North Carolina, Daughtry began singing at 16 years old and started performing with rock bands while in high school. He played rhythm guitar and sang for several bands during that time.
Portrayed as a Southern rocker on "American Idol", Daughtry caught the attention of the band Fuel when he performed their song "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" on the television show, and was offered the role of lead singer for the band. He declined, desiring to start his own band instead.
After his elimination on "American Idol," Daughtry made numerous appearances on talk shows, performing songs by Bon Jovi, Stone Temple Pilots and others. His performances continued to spark more interest from fans just in time for his debut album. Singles from the album include "It's Not Over," "Home," "What I Want" and "Over You."
