Big Concerts confirmed today that Daughtry will be returning to South Africa performing in October supported by Jesse Clegg.

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. Since rising to prominence on the fifth season of American Idol, 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 Number One 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 song writing.

The band have also released a  new single “Deep End” which will be featured on the band’s forthcoming 5th studio album Cage To Rattle, which is set for release on July 27th via 19 Recordings/RCA Records and is available for pre-order now.

Listen to “Deep End” here.


Daughtry will be supported by special guest Jesse Clegg. Jesse has been nominated for four South African Music Awards, has released six Top 10 singles as well as 3 albums ‘When I Wake Up’, ‘Life on Mars’ (produced by David Bottrill) and ‘Things Unseen’.
