Event Description:

Daughtry is coming to Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, August 24th.

As the frontman for the band bearing his name, Daughtry has become one of the most visible and consistent Rock & Roll torchbearers of the 21st Century. Throughout his career he has released four albums, all of which reached the Billboard Top Ten and have combined sales over 8 million copies in the U.S. Daughtry’s self-titled debut was the best-selling album of 2007, which contained four Top Twenty hit singles including the Grammy-nominated smash "It’s Not Over." Leave This Town also reached #1 in 2009, while 2011’s Break the Spell was certified gold. His group’s most recent record, 2013’s Baptized, featured the platinum-selling "Waiting for Superman," which the singer points to as a turning point in his songwriting.

Daughtry and his band have been performing together for over a decade and released their fifth album in 2018.  They look to contemporaries like Maroon 5 and Train as examples of acts able to maintain their relevance while Rock & Roll faces an uphill struggle in the mass media. "Those guys are inspirational, showing that you can come back and have a strong presence, even if what you’re known for doing is having a hard time," he says. 10 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 pretense. 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."
