The singer, songwriter and musician from North Carolina has released back-to-back No. 1 albums, the quadruple-platinum “DAUGHTRY” (which became the fastest-selling rock debut in Soundscan history) and 2009’s platinum “Leave This Town.”

Daughtry has scored four No. 1 Top 40 hits (“It’s Not Over,” “Home,” “Feels Like Tonight” and “No Surprise”), earned four Grammy Award nominations (including “Best Rock Album” for “Daughtry”), won four American Music Awards and brought its electrifying live show to all corners of the world, including sold-out arenas in South Africa, Singapore and the Philippines.

Daughtry plans to give fans a chance to experience a number of new tracks from “Break The Spell,” including the chart-climbing hits “Crawling Back To You” and “Renegade.”

“We recorded a hard-hitting rock album that is primed to blow the doors off these great theaters,” singer Chris Daughtry says. “Fans who come out are going to get an incredible show every night.”
