Possessing one of the most outstanding and instantly recognizable voices in music, singer, songwriter and actor Josh Groban has entertained fans across the globe with his multi-platinum albums and DVDs (25 million sold worldwide), electrifying live performances and comedic film and television appearances. Today, Groban announced the next stage in his live career is with the Josh Groban In the Round Tour, which begins October 2 and continues through mid-November. Groban performs his In The Round tour at the Amway Center in Orlando on Saturday, November 9. Tickets went on sale Friday, May 10 at 10 a.m.
The Josh Groban In the Round Tour will give fans a one-of-a-kind concert experience. Placed in the middle of the floor, this 360 stage will allow Groban to interact with fans from all sides of the venue and hear him sing classic songs that span his illustrious 12 year career. The In the Round tour builds on the concept of Groban’s 2011 Straight To You world tour, bringing the intimate feel of a theater experience to an arena setting.
Says Groban, “It has been a vision of mine to do a tour in the round for a while now, it was just a matter of when was the right time. I have always had moments during the show where I walked through the crowd and interacted with the fans. I felt that now was the time to bring it all together. I can’t wait to bring music from throughout my career, great fun and new experiences to my fans.”
Groban will be joined by an ensemble of world-class musicians – featuring Andre Manga on bass, Ruslan Sirota on keys, Pete Korpela on percussion, music director Tariqh Akoni on guitar , Dave DiCenso on drums, Christian Habel on violin and Daniel Rosenboom on trumpet. In addition, a local orchestra and choir will be added in each city.
Groban recently completed a wildly successful tour in Australia and New Zealand where he drew rave reviews.
