Did you catch Daughtry's New Year's Eve performance? We saw a clip, and the dude, who apparently gets mistaken for Vin Diesel a lot, has facial hair and eyebrows that kind of look like they were drawn on his face with Sharpie. Seems a little distracting if you ask us, but the Times Square crowd was certainly engaged.
See if you have the same reaction this spring when Daughtry brings his manicured facial hair and his band to the Odeum Colorado on Tuesday, April 20 for the band's inaugural arena tour. Tickets for this show, which run $29.50 to $39.50, go on sale Saturday, January 23 at 10 a.m.
King Khan, meanwhile, who was originally scheduled to come through town with BBQ Show back in November but had to cancel due to incident in Kentucky allegedly involving psychedelic mushrooms, is making his way back to the Mile High City for a show at the Bluebird on Thursday, April 8. This time around, he'll be joined by his massive band the Shrines, who put on an insanely energetic show at the Larimer Lounge in June 2008. Advance seats for this show are $13.50 ($16 day of show), and go on sale this Friday, January 22 at 10 a.m. Early Bird tickets are available for $10 from Friday at 10 a.m. until Sunday night at midnight.
Finally, Dr. Dog, who's preparing to release its Anti- Records debut, Shame, Shame, in April, is slated to visit the Gothic Theatre on Tuesday, April 20 as part of a ten-week national headlining tour premiering tracks from the new album. Tickets go on sale Saturday, January 23 at 10 a.m. Follow the jump to see what other shows have been announced, are on sale or about to go on sale.
