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.
