Greensboro, NC -- There was a nice welcome home for Greensboro's own Chris Daughtry at the Greensboro Coliseum Saturday night.

Daughtry rose to stardom after competing on American Idol.

The band has scored four number one hits, four Grammy nominations, and sold over seven million albums in less than four years.

This tour is also a fundraiser as the band will donate a dollar from every ticket sold to Malaria No More, an organization that fights the spread of malaria in Africa.

Daughtry's hometown concert comes days after being sued by former bandmates for compensation and royalties for several songs on his first and second albums.

Ryan Andrews, Scott Crawford, and Mark Perry, all former members of Absent Element (Daughtry's band while he was an American Idol contestant), filed the case Thursday with the Guilford County Court system.

Among the accusations are breaches of fiduciary duty, unfair trade practices and other deceptive and wrongful conduct.

The songs at issue are "Home", "Breakdown", "Conviction", and "Sinking". The band members say these songs were written and created before Daughtry joined the American Idol show.
