Excerpts from the press release:
On Valentine's Day, Josh Groban thrilled fans by announcing the launch of his 2011 World Tour on NBC's The Today Show. Now, the multi-platinum recording artist has announced the North American tour dates and ticket on-sale dates for the "Straight To You" Tour ...This is Groban's first full-scale global arena tour since 2007, when the internationally renowned singer and songwriter hit the road for his hugely successful, sold-out 81-city Awake World Tour.
The "Straight To You" Tour will bring the feel of a theater experience to an arena setting through stage design, lighting, and projection, as well as through the spontaneity and interactivity Groban delighted his fans with during last year's "Before We Begin" shows, in which he solicited feedback from the audience on which songs should be included in the set-list. As a result, for the "Straight To You" shows, Groban will continue to interact with audiences and perform favorites from his best-selling albums, including his self-titled debut, Closer, and Awake, as well as songs from Illuminations.
Released by 143/Reprise Records on November 15, Illuminations debuted at No. 4 on Billboard's Top 200 chart (Groban's fourth consecutive Top 5 chart bow), selling 191,337 units in its first week.
Groban recently performed the National Anthem at the 60th Annual NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles. He will be a guest-host on Live with Regis & Kelly on March 4th.
