LOS ANGELES, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the success of its nationally televised New Year's Eve performance in Times Square, Daughtry reveals plans for the second leg of its U.S. arena tour, which is scheduled to begin March 18 in Baltimore, Maryland and will continue into the summer.

For the upcoming shows, singer Chris Daughtry, bassist Josh Paul, drummer Joey Barnes, and guitarists Brian Craddock and Josh Steely will be joined by special guest Lifehouse and opening band Cavo.  

Daughtry launched its first-ever arena tour last fall, making stops all over the American heartland before taking a break in late December. The group is currently on tour in the U.K. and Europe.

As the band prepares for another round of headlining U.S. arenas, Chris Daughtry says the excitement has not worn off. "Growing up, you dream about singing one of your songs in front of a packed house," he says. "I still get chills when we're playing and I hear the crowd singing louder than we are."

The tour announcement comes as Daughtry's latest single "Life After You," continues to perform well on the charts. The song is the second from the group's sophomore album Leave This Town, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last summer. The album's first single, "No Surprise," became the band's fourth #1 hit and the band's third single is scheduled to be released this spring.

Daughtry fans registered to receive the www.daughtryofficial.com email newsletter will have access to exclusive passwords with which to pre-order tickets for upcoming shows.  Every effort will be made to ensure that Daughtry fans who pre-order tickets will receive the best seats in the house.
