Muti-platinum selling US artist Josh Groban is confirmed to play this Autumn in the UK as part of his 2011 ‘Straight To You’ world tour.
Josh will be performing songs from his most recent album, “Illuminations,” which debuted at No. 4 on the US Billboard Top 200 and from his previous four best-selling albums. He has now sold a staggering 20 million albums worldwide, in less than 10 years, and has been nominated for a Grammy and an Academy Award. He modestly describes himself as ‘a tenor in training.’
“Illuminations” sees Groban team up with the super-producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys), and together they have created a new musical zone, one where folk meets classical, where art meets intimacy, where immediacy meets timelessness and where, most importantly, Groban was free to express himself more fully than ever before. Previous musical collaborations have been with British artists Imogen Heap and Charlotte Church and with the legendary Barbra Streisand.
The concerts promise to be theatrical and interactive with the audience – a feature of Groban’s live performance.
