FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Daughtry will launch a 36-date U.S. arena tour this fall to support the group's new studio album, Leave This Town. A stop in Fort Wayne, at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, will be on the tour’s agenda for Monday, October 26 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, August 22 at 10:00 a.m. at the Memorial Coliseum Ticket Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at www.ticketmaster.com or charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000.
The opening acts will be Theory Of A Deadman and opener Cavo.
The tour announcement happens while Leave This Town continues its impressive streak of success. The album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, has sold more than a half million copies in five weeks. The album's first single, "No Surprise," tops No.1 on the Hot A/C chart this week. It is the band's fourth #1 hit, a rare feat for any recording artist.
After finishing a sold out club tour this month, Chris Daughtry says the band is busy preparing for its upcoming arena tour. "We dreamed about how it would feel playing these songs to packed arenas, and we're excited to get our chance," Chris says. "We have a great show planned and can’t wait to hit the road to share it with our fans."
Leave This Town is Daughtry's first album to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 and its second consecutive No. 1 album, selling 269,299 copies sold in its first week of release.
