Chris Daughtry, a finalist on the hit television series American Idol, has announced plans to perform a free concert in Greensboro, North Carolina on March 23rd.
The event is being organized by officials at the Greensboro Coliseum as part of a build up to the NCAA women’s basketball tournament that will be held there on March 24th and 26th. There are also hopes that the event will help the city’s bid to host the 2012 women’s Final Four tournament. Daughtry is expected to draw a crowd of 6,000 to 7,000 fans.
Since his appearance on American Idol (where he finished fourth), Daughtry has gone on to form his own band (named Daughtry) and release a debut album on the RCA label of Sony BMG. The album has already sold 1.3 million copies and saw success with the first single release “It’s Not Over.”
