Ten Times Crazier Tour

Blake Shelton, five-time Academy of Country Music (ACM) nominee, including a nod for Entertainer of the Year, announced show dates and venues for his Ten Times Crazier Tour 2014. The tour kicks off June 20 and makes a stop in Orlando at the Amway Center on Saturday, August 30, his only Florida date.  Tickets go on sale Friday, May 2 at 10 a.m.

Shelton is donating $1 from every fan club pre-sale ticket sold to the ACM’s Lifting Lives Foundation through his “Blake is #TenTimesCrazier!” Thunderclap campaign (Thunderclap is a fundraising tool with the first-ever crowd-speaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared via Facebook and Twitter). Supporters are automatically entered to win two tickets and a backstage meet and greet with Shelton.

Pre-sale announcements will continue throughout spring 2014. Updates are posted on BlakeShelton.com and communicated via the Blake Shelton fan club email. To access the pre-sale, fans must register to be a Blake Shelton fan club member for free by visiting BlakeShelton.com.

The 20+ date Ten Times Crazier Tour 2014, promoted by Live Nation, features his current single, “Doin’ What She Likes,” the fourth single off the Country Music Award-winning and Grammy®-nominated Country Album of the Year, along with “Based On a True Story,” which is Top 10 on the country charts. His previous hit single, “Mine Would Be You,” shot to the top of the charts giving Shelton his 10th consecutive number one (15 overall). 

Shelton, is CMA Awards’ reigning “Male Vocalist of the Year” for the fourth consecutive year, the 2013 recipient of “Album of the Year” for his current platinum-selling release, “Based On a True Story”…. and is a coach on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning musical-competition series “The Voice.” The New York Times says, “Shelton is one of the “most versatile of contemporary country singers.” Shelton has earned a host of other awards and nominations, including three Grammy® nominations this year for Country Album of the Year and Country Solo Performance and Country Song of the Year nods for “Mine Would Be You.” His multi-week number one, “Honey Bee,” still holds the record for the fastest-selling digital platinum-single for a male country solo artist. “To a purist Mr. Shelton is a savvy student of tradition. To a would-be outlaw he’s forever adding a wink. He’s a star who is only as explicit as you want him to be,” says Jon Caramanica of The New York Times. Shelton’s passion for country music and his commitment to mentoring his teammates from “The Voice” make him an incredible ambassador for country music.

About The Band Perry

Ten Times Crazier Tour

The Band Perry has ascended to dizzying heights since releasing their self-titled debut album on Republic Nashville in 2010, which scored the sibling trio a string of hits, including the quadruple-platinum “If I Die Young” (number one on Billboard’s Country and AC charts); platinum “You Lie” and gold “All Your Life” (number one on Country). Fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Neil and Reid, the band has amassed over 10.3 million tracks sold from their platinum debut and gold sophomore release “Pioneer,” which debuted at number one on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and number two on All Genre. In addition to acclaim from top critics across the country, “Pioneer,” has produced two consecutive number one Country smashes – the platinum “Better Dig Two” and gold “Done,” which earned Neil and Reid their first chart-topper as songwriters. Their current single, “Don¹t Let Me Be Lonely,” is in the Top five and still climbing at Country radio. 

The Band Perry has also enjoyed sold-out headlining dates and are currently out on their first global headline tour, We are Pioneers World Tour.  In the past year, they have taken over the American television airwaves with unforgettable performances on the ACM, CMA, Grammy® and Billboard Music Awards. Additionally, they have made appearances on American Idol, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Ellen, The Talk, The Arsenio Hall Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman, as well as a banner performance of “CMT Crossroads” with rockers Fall Out Boy.

About Dan + Shay

Ten Times Crazier Tour

Nashville newcomers Dan + Shay became the most added new duo of 2013 at country radio with their breakout debut hit “19 You + Me.” Already Top 20 on the charts after only 13 weeks, the track was written by the pair along with Nashville songwriter Danny Orton.

The nostalgic feel-good single is the first track from their forthcoming album, due out later this year on Warner Bros. Records. Made up of Dan Smyers, a Pittsburgh, PA native and Shay Mooney, originally of Natural Dam, AR, the two realized they had a special musical connection after meeting at a party at Smyers’ house, in his tented out living room only one year ago. What started as a late night jam session among new friends, led to daily writing sessions that resulted in songs which quickly caught the attention of publishers, label heads and radio programmers.

Written entirely by Smyers and Mooney, and co-produced by Smyers, Scott Hendricks and Orton, the duo are putting the finishing touches on the yet to be titled debut album. Dan + Shay are excited to bring their infectious original sound to fans on the upcoming Blake Shelton tour.

About Neal McCoy

Ten Times Crazier Tour

No doubt about it, in the 20 years since released his first single, Neal McCoy – the one-of-a-kind country singer and consummate live performer – has enjoyed every minute of his long, successful career.

Even with 11 albums, over 25 charted singles and countless touring miles already under his big belt buckle, the Longview, Texas-based artist has no intention of slowing down. Whether he’s delivering a stirring version of “America the Beautiful” in front of 65,000 standing, cheering fans in Texas Stadium or performing for troops in any number of harrowing, far-flung locales, or coming out of nowhere with a Top 10 comeback single on his own independent label, critics, radio programmers and legions of diehard fans have come to know that they can always expect the unexpected from McCoy.

For all of his success in the record business, McCoy is, always has been, and always will be, in the “entertainment” business. In fact, now that James Brown has left the building, McCoy could easily adopt the appellation of “The Hardest Working Man in Show Business.” For more info, please visit Neal McCoy.

Jesus Christ Superstar, the global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, is reimagined for the 21st century as an arena-rock spectacular.  The biggest ever North American arena tour of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s groundbreaking rock musical is coming to Orlando at the Amway Center on Saturday, June 14 with an extraordinary cast of rock, pop and R&B superstars.
Jesus Christ Superstar Arena Tour Amway Center
Tickets go on sale Friday, April 11 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.com, by calling 800.745.3000 and at the Amway Center box office. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Friday, April 4 at 10 a.m. Tickets range from $34.50 to $149.50 with a limited number of Gold Circle seats and VIP Experience packages available. Additional ticket fees may apply.
Brandon Boyd, Grammy® nominated lead vocalist of rock band Incubus, is confirmed for the role of ‘Judas Iscariot’, Grammy®nominated *NSYNC vocalist, JC Chasez, will play ‘Pontius Pilate’, Grammy® Award winner and member of Destiny’s Child, Michelle Williams, will take the female lead as ‘Mary Magdalene’, English singer-songwriter and lead singer in Public Image Ltd. (PiL) and Sex Pistols, John Rotten Lydon, will play ‘King Herod’ and introducing British actor and singer, Ben Forster, who won England’s “ITV Superstar” competition in 2012 and played the lead role in the UK and Australian arena tours of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” will revive his role as ‘Jesus.’ With over 50 cast and musicians on stage this is one arena show that can’t be missed!
The North American leg comes on the heels of the wildly successful UK and Australian arena tours, which began in the UK in September 2012 and commenced in Australia in May 2013. The Times said, “The show gets the right balance between the spectacular, the jokey and the sincere. The performances from the well-choreographed supporting cast are fine throughout. Honestly, it’s enough to give rock opera a good name.” The Evening Chronicle exclaimed, “the extravagance of the production, a flamboyant spectacle of acrobatics, dramatic flames and provocative pole dancing,” and Liverpool Daily Post claimed,  “Restored to its rock roots, the star-studded second coming of Jesus Christ Superstar is big, brash and bold…” and the Manchester Evening News stated, “from the very opening strains the pounding music, the huge and sophisticated video backdrops and pulsating energy from a talented ensemble cast make this a true spectacle.”
“In 1971 Andrew and I were thrilled by the first-ever Jesus Christ Superstar tour of the United States,” said Tim Rice. “We certainly did not imagine then that 43 years later we would be witnessing another America-wide tour of our first big hit show. We are delighted and grateful that enthusiasm for Superstar has been maintained over the years and this new production presents the work in its most powerful format – as a true rock experience.”
“Jesus Christ Superstar began life as a rock album…probably because nobody believed back in 1969 that you could present a stage musical about the last days of the life of Jesus Christ. I shall never forget its first live performance in the Civic Arena, Pittsburgh on July 12th 1971. Of course JCS subsequently became a legit theatre stalwart, but I, personally, have always hankered after seeing it again in the arenas where it started,” said Andrew Lloyd Webber.
“I’m excited to be involved with Jesus Christ Superstar,” said Michael Cohl. “The show has evolved greatly over the past 40 years and it is exhilarating to be a part of a project that marries this incredible property and its extraordinary music with the new, innovative technology that has become available for live shows.  This arena rock spectacular is a whole new experience for fans.”
“I am so thrilled to be a part of this amazing production!” said Brandon Boyd. “I grew up on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classics and never imagined I would be playing a role in one, let alone with such an incredibly diverse cast of players. Truly an honor!”
“When I heard Jesus Christ Superstar was coming to the States, I was excited at the idea to be a part of telling one of the most influential stories in history through the scope of such a talented composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber,” said JC Chasez. “I’m excited to work with such a dynamic cast, and to bring Jesus Christ Superstar back to its roots as a rock arena experience.”
“I am so excited to be part of such a legendary production alongside an amazing cast!, said Michelle Williams. “I am truly looking forward to this experience!”
“I’m here to sing with the King of the Jews, who could ask for anything more?” said John Rotten Lydon.
“I feel so excited to bring this production to North America,” said Ben Forster. “America has to experience this rock arena spectacular as Andrew Lloyd Webber envisaged it. I am the real life Billy Elliot, from a coal mining city in the north of England to touring huge arenas across North America! You are about to witness my dream come true!”
The Jesus Christ Superstar Arena Spectacular North American Tour is presented by S2BN Entertainment and The Really Useful Group.

TSO, whose phenomena has grown year after year, has played over 1,500 shows for more than 10 million fans in the past 15 years, and quietly became one of the world’s biggest arena-rock acts. The unprecedented fan driven growth is a testament to TSO founder Paul O’Neill’s vision of “Rock Theater,” the perfect amalgamation of Broadway storytelling with the spectacle of rock, delighting audiences of all ages year after year.

During the final tour, audiences will get to experience the modern Charles Dickens-like classic, “The Lost Christmas Eve.” Following the 2012 premiere of this acclaimed rock opera, critics were raving, calling it “…a must see for any music lover,” “…a rock ‘n’ roll holiday celebration worth seeing,” and an “unrivaled spectacle of sight and sound.” “The Lost Christmas Eve” features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, R&B, and theatrical-styled music, with the story taking you on a journey into the “Capra-esque” world of TSO creator/producer, Paul O’Neill. The critically acclaimed rock opera encompasses a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, a Gothic cathedral, and their respective inhabitants all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City. “The Lost Christmas Eve”, performed in its entirety for the final time, will feature the hit single “Wizards in Winter,” as well as longtime crowd favorites, “Christmas Nights in Blue” and “Siberian Sleigh Ride.” It will be followed by songs from last year’s EP release from Lava/Republic, “Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night),” classics from TSO’s debut album, “Christmas Eve & Other Stories” and the rest of the heralded catalogue of rock operas.

While off the road, TSO is constantly stockpiling new projects in their Rock Theater arsenal, including the rock operas “Gutter Ballet and the New York City Blues Express,” “Letters from the Labyrinth” and “Romanov: When Kings Must Whisper,” an epic story set amidst the Bolshevik Revolution.

Since their debut in 1996, TSO has defied the rules of an ever-changing music industry being regarded as a mix of The Who’s “Tommy,” Andrew Lloyd Weber’s musicals, and Pink Floyd’s expansive light show. Year after year, the group has ranked in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and attendance, according to Pollstar magazine. Having played live to over one million fans each year, TSO saw a 15% increase in sales alone in 2012, transforming them into a year round tradition that’s here to stay.

Winter Jam JAMS out in Tampa

Winter Jam

This past Saturday Shalon and I were lucky enough to be invited to the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular in Tampa. Being the music lovers that we are we jumped at the chance. Winter Jam is a Christian Rock concert that has toured since 1995. It was started by the group New Song and has grown with popularity over the years. At the heart of Winter Jam is ministry and it’s commitment to no tickets and only $10 at the door. This remains a unique characteristic to Winter Jam and underscores the importance of making the event affordable for families, individuals and groups of all sizes. Luckily the tour made a stop close to us this year and we were able to go!

Having made friends with Royal Tailor when we were at Night of Joy, we were super excited to see them again in Concert. We knew that there were a bunch of bands performing and that while each group only had time to do 3 or 4 songs, we would get to see the best that each band had to offer!

Up first was a band called Capital Kings who we learned were a Electric Pop duo who had the whole forum on their feet when they performed in the very center of the floor!

Next up was OBB (which stands for Oswald Brothers Band) An adorable band of brothers who had great harmony and chemistry on stage! We were instant fans!

Up next was American Idol Alumni Jason Castro! Always love listening to his voice and guitar playing! Kid is seriously talented and he always puts on a great concert!

Performing next was of course the highlight of our night Royal Tailor. We were so fortunate to be able to get to know Tauren, Blake, DJ and Jarrod when we had dinner with them during Night of Joy and we beyond thrilled to see the guys in concert again! This time as fans and friends! And they did not disappoint!  The boys were on point and kept the crowd happy their whole set! There was even a youth group that leaned the dance from their video Make A Move. It was Awesome!!!!

The next highlight for me was the band Red. I have been a long time fan of them and missed them totally due to rain at Night of Joy and was SO excited to see them here. I wont ruin it for you, but they had an AMAZING SET!!!!! A M A Z I N G !!!!!!!

The Headliner and the last act of the night was Toby Mac! If you have ever seen him in concert then you know his energy is exactly what you want to end an evening with! That man does not stop the whole time he is on stage and he MOVES FAST! When he adds in all his people, it is a show that is always worth it!!!!!!

After the concert each of the bands did a meet and greet with fans and signed CDs and shirts and things! Luckily we got to see our favorite Royal Tailor Guys and say hi to them again! It was nice to be able to talk to them and make plans for when they return to Florida.
