US superstars Daughtry have confirmed only their second ever UK show at the Scala in London on 27th November 2007. The band last played in the country in June of this year when their Borderline show sold out in a matter of minutes and fans camped out all day for tickets that were changing hands on the internet for £400.The band, fronted by Chris Daughtry have been touring consistently across the US since the release of their debut album in the US last November and have gone on to sell an incredible 3 million copies and hitting the number one spot (twice!) on the Billboard top 100. It’s still the biggest selling album in the US this year, and new single ‘Over You’ is one of the most added songs at US radio, currently at no. 25 in the Billboard chart and rising. The album entered the UK charts at No. 13 upon it’s release in August.Having recently visited Singapore and Australia for the first time, Daughtry returned to the US to discover they had been nominated for 3 American Music Awards: Favourite Album (Pop or Rock), Favourite Artist (Adult Contemporary) and Favourite Breakthrough ArtistVocalist Chris Daughtry came to prominence as one of the runners up in American Idol, and is only the second artist to have come out of the show to have had any international success. With huge interest building across Europe, Daughtry could well be the first musical reality show contestant to truly become a worldwide star. Debut single ‘It’s Not Over’ is looking to crack into the German top ten this week, proving the appeal of the classic songwriting and emotive vocals of Daughtry is truly universal.Daughtry consist of Josh Paul (bass), Joey Barnes (drums), Brian Craddock (guitar), Josh Steely (guitar) and Chris Daughtry (vocals). They recorded their triple platinum album with Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, All American Rejects) which went on to spend over 30 weeks in the Billboard Top Ten on release. The band will release a single ‘Home’ on 7th January (originally scheduled for late October).
