LOS ANGELES (RPRN) 8/19/2009--
Daughtry announces it will launch a 36-date U.S. arena tour this fall to support the group's new studio album, LEAVE THIS TOWN.

and opener Cavo http://www.cavomusic.com
. The upcoming tour will launch October 19 in Topeka, KS before ending the first leg of the tour December 20 in Evansville, IN.
The tour announcement happens while LEAVE THIS TOWN
continues its impressive streak of success. The album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200
, has sold more than a half million copies in five weeks. The album's first single, "No Surprise," tops No. 1 on the Hot A/C chart this week. It is the band's fourth #1 hit, a rare feat for any recording artist.
After finishing a sold out club tour this month, Chris Daughtry says the band is busy preparing for its upcoming arena tour. "We dreamed about how it would feel playing these songs to packed arenas, and we're excited to get our chance," Chris says. "We have a great show planned and can't wait to hit the road to share it with our fans."
LEAVE THIS TOWN
is Daughtry's first album to debut at the top of the Billboard 200
