Concert Review: Daughtry – Bradley Center, Milwaukee, February 21, 2008

Daughtry opened for Bon Jovi before an almost packed to capacity Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Daughtry commenced its performance with a new song titled “You Don’t Belong.” According to Chris Daughtry’s video blog on Daughtry's web site,
Chris remarked, “hope it makes it on the new record.”

I was unfamiliar with that song but I have to admit that I really enjoyed it. I am hoping that it will be included on the new album, whenever that may be. After “You Don’t Belong” concluded, Daughtry received a loud ovation.

At this show Daughtry received a loud ovation after each song (just as it had at Summerfest) and the audience also provided additional background vocals on “It’s Not Over,” “What About Now,” “Feels Like Tonight” and “Home” from their debut album titled Daughtry. However, just like Summerfest, I wish Daughtry had played “Sorry.”

As Daughtry concluded its performance with “There and Back” from its self-titled debut album, the band received a loud ovation. Even though I really enjoyed Daughtry’s performance, I have to say that I preferred when Daughtry headlined at Summerfest last July 6, 2007.

The reason why I preferred Daughtry at Summerfest was because the audience was far more energetic and seemed to really enjoy the performance more than this more recent performance. In fact, at Summerfest there were no empty seats while at the Bradley Center there were still a lot of empty seats and people shuffling in and out of the center. I realize that they probably wanted to watch Bon Jovi’s performance but they still missed out on another solid performance by Daughtry.

If you unfamiliar with Daughtry, visit Daughtry's web site or their MySpace page and listen to the music. If it turns out that after listening to Daughtry’s music that you enjoy it, make sure you purchase their debut album Daughtry at iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody or any store that sells their music.

If you purchase Daughtry’s entire album at iTunes you will receive the bonus song titled “Sorry.” “Sorry” is one of my favorite songs on the Daughtry (Bonus Track) album. Also, if you want to hear a live performance album by Daughtry, make sure you purchase the album titled AOL Music Sessions (Live) – EP.

If you prefer acoustic music, you should purchase Daughtry’s single import album titled It’s Not Over (Single) because it contains an acoustic version of “Crashed.” Also, make sure you purchase Daughtry’s album on Rhapsody titled Rhapsody Originals (Exclusive) because it contains acoustic versions of “It’s Not Over” and “Home.” They sound just as awesome as their original album versions if not better.

If you own a video iPod, make sure you purchase the band's most popular videos including “Home,” “It’s Not Over,” “Over You” and “Feels Like Tonight.” They are just as entertaining as their musical counterparts. Hopefully soon, additional videos will be available like “What About Now” and “Sorry.”

Finally, I am looking forward to providing future coverage of Daughtry whether that will include an interview, another live performance or both. Maybe next time, Daughtry will perform “Sorry.” Below is the set list from Daughtry’s performance in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
