Daughtry - Roundhouse, London - October 12 2014 (Live Review)

Wednesday, 15 October 2014 Written by Katie Territt

It’s been over eight years since Chris Daughtry’s early exit from American Idol. But, fortunately, it doesn’t take victory in a singing competition to have a successful career in music. Daughtry, formed and fronted by their namesake, are proof.

Back in March, the band briefly brought their ‘Baptized’ tour to the UK, taking in Shepherd’s Bush Empire along the way. Sticking to their promise to come back sooner rather than later, they hit a sold out Camden Roundhouse on Sunday night.

The Whereabouts kicked things off in some style with their blues and folk-tinged rock. The Irish youngsters played well beyond their years and already boast a set of potential hits. I Don’t Care, Money & Fame and Don’t Bring Me Down were standouts and their throwback sound received a rousing reception from the already huge crowd.

Daughtry took to the stage to the title track of latest album, ‘Baptized’, and the setlist was heavy with tracks from the almost year-old release. Witness and Traitor urged the packed venue to sing every word back to the band, whose self-titled debut also had an impressive outing.

Over You, It’s Not Over and a mass singalong to Home provided highlights, while  their between-song chat was filled with humour and gratitude. Daughtry also took a moment to serenade a couple with their first dance, Start of Something Good, in recognition of their engagement at the band’s meet and greet earlier in the day.

Waiting for Superman and Long Live Rock & Roll provided a massive encore to a hit-heavy set that boasted tight musicianship and some joyous vocals from Daughtry himself. The band left with the promise of a UK tour in the near future and, given the response of their passionate fans, it won’t be a minute too soon.
