Daughtry Tour Dates Added

According to the Daughtry official Web site these are the dates for the band's upcoming tour (more dates to be added). Most venues, which are smaller clubs, are sold out. In his Jan. 24th post on his blog, Chris apologizes to all his disappointed fans who couldn't snag tickets:

"I can't wait to see all of you on the road. It's gonna be a fun tour. We wanted to play the small venues first because it's so much more in your face and intimate. I've heard a lot of you were upset that you couldn't get tickets and I'm so sorry. But it's ok because this club tour is just the beginning.

"Hopefully we'll be coming right back to your town in bigger venues later this year.Until then, thank you all so much for the love and support. I couldn't ask for better fans.-Chris"

Daughtry will be touring with Eve to Adam and Cinder Road as its opening act. Click the Eve to Adam link to listen to them on their MySpace page. They remind us a lot of Daughtry's sound. Also take a listen to Cinder Road on their MySpace page. Should be a great concert. The 2007 Winter Tour will encompass 52 cities from the West Coast to the East Coast. Buy tickets here.

Glenn Gamboa reviews Katharine McPhee's debut album which drops Tuesday:

McPHEEVER PITCH. Give Katharine McPhee a great ballad and she will hit it out of the park time and time again. Give her an uptempo song with some R&B-tinged phrasing (like the ill-advised ode to revealing footwear, "Open Toes") and it sounds like she’s hanging on for dear life, hoping the song doesn’t speed off without her.

Unfortunately, on "Katharine McPhee" (RCA), the "American Idol" runner-up’s debut, she ends up with way too many songs that she can’t quite handle. So it’s a tribute to her winning personality and powerful voice that her album turns out to be one of the best post-"Idol" debuts yet, in the same league as Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.

Half of the album’s 12 songs come from McPhee’s collaboration with Nate "Danja" Hills, best known for his fresh work with Timbaland on projects with Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake. McPhee is not an R&B kinda girl, though. And, sometimes, especially on the Christina Aguileraesque "Love Story," she gets left behind. Only the slinky "Each Other," a third-generation photocopy of Mariah Carey’s "We Belong Together," sounds like they were on the same page.

McPhee’s comfort zone is the big ballad and she does wonders with the wrenchingly soulful piano ballad "Better Off Alone" and the showstopper "Ordinary World." She is at her best on the Babyface-written R&B ballad "Everywhere I Go," which could provide the prototype for her future, one that merges pop’s current sound and her obvious strengths. ("Katharine McPhee"; Grade: B-)
