North Carolina quintet Daughtry is further proof that American Idol is more than an annoyingly ubiquitous primetime circus—it's also a viable launching pad for annoyingly ubiquitous solo careers from its higher-placing contestants. So expect tickets for Daughtry’s just announced April 7 show at U.S. Cellular Arena to go faster than you can say “Pants On The Ground” when they go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 23 for $29.50 and $39.50. Speaking of annoying, massively wimpy soft-rock band Five For Fighting is headed to Turner Hall for a show March 23 in support of last year’s Slice, which has just be burning up the adult contemporary charts. Tickets are $25.50 and go on sale at noon Jan. 29.
Hey, there are also some cool shows coming up! Blues master B.B. King doesn’t move around as well as he used to, but the guy can still play, and his show Nov. 13 at Riverside Theater will be, if nothing else, a chance to share a room with a living monument to American music. It’s a long way off, but tickets for the show go on sale at noon Jan. 29 for $55 and $45.
Today’s most intriguing concert announcement has to be the epic Puscifer and Neil Hamburger double-bill coming March 30 to Pabst Theater. Puscifer is yet another side project for Tool singer Maynard James Keenan, who will also be hosting a special VIP wine tasting for his own Caduceus brand. Neil Hamburger is, well, Neil Hamburger, America’s funnyman supreme. Tickets go on sale at noon Jan. 29.
