Rock band Daughtry will power through the spring months with a second leg of dates on its national tour. Routing for the tour will take former American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry and his eponymous band on a coast-to-coast circuit that kicks off March 18 at 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore, MD, and continues through June 19 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY.

Highlights for the tour include a March 20 show at Agganis Arena in Boston, MA; April 6 at Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, MO; April 29 at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, NV; May 3 at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA; May 30 at Sommet Center in Nashville, TN; and June 11 at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC.

At this point, the tour will make only four stops in Canada. Dates currently on the calendar are May 13 at Rexall Place in Edmonton, AB; May 14 at Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon, SK; May 15 at Brandt Centre in Regina, SK; and May 17 at MTS Centre in Winnipeg, MB.

Fan club presales for the tour start today, January 20. Initial ticket sales for select dates of the tour will open to the general public January 22, with more onsales for later concerts following in February. Main support comes from Lifehouse with hard rock band Cavo opening on a nightly basis.

Daughtry and his American Idol-born band are still promoting the 2009 album, “Leave This Town,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The rock crew began its road running with a late 2009 tour of North America. That round of performances ran from mid-October up to the holidays, and included nearly 40 stops.

“Growing up, you dream about singing one of your songs in front of a packed house,” Daughtry said in a statement announcing the upcoming tour. “I still get chills when we’re playing and I hear the crowd singing louder than we are.”
