Daughtry to kick off Summer Concert Season at the Capitol Federal Amphitheater®
After having to cancel the 2020 Summer Concert Season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Capitol Federal Amphitheater® is excited to bring Daughtry out on Saturday, July 10th, for the first concert of the summer.
“We had already been talking with Daughtry’s agent for a concert in 2020 but when COVID-19 happened, we had to put the brakes on everything, which was disappointing”, said City of Andover Event Director, Katie Cork. Lucky for Cork, they were able to resume their talks and seal the deal for 2021.
Daughtry has become one of the most visible and consistent Rock & Roll torchbearers of the 21st Century. Since rising to prominence in 2016, the band has sold over 9 million albums and 16 million singles worldwide.
Their debut album, the self-titled Daughtry, was the top-selling album of 2007, producing 4 Top 20 Platinum-selling singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and became the fastest-selling rock debut album in Soundscan history. It was also nominated for 4 Grammy Awards and won 4 American Music Awards and 7 Billboard Music Awards including Album of the Year. The subsequent albums, Leave This Town (2009), Break The Spell (2011), Baptized (2013) and Cage To Rattle (2018) were all certified Gold and placed in the top 10 in the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart.
In 2020, Daughtry released their newest single, World On Fire, which marked their return to their rock roots and the top of the Rock Charts in the US. The Bands Current single “Heavy is the Crown” is out Now.
The 2021 Summer Concert Season will be the third one since the Capitol Federal Amphitheater® was completed. Cork is looking forward to getting back in the swing of things. “Since we are a newer venue to the area, we are still trying to get the word out about us. We know people are ready to start doing more and as an outdoor venue, we have ample space for people to spread out and enjoy the show.”
Tickets start at $25 and are on sale now.
