Josh Groban has announced a North American tour in support of his new album, All That Echoes , and it promises to be an intimate experience. The tour will be staged "in the round," with Josh on a 360-degree stage in the middle of the floor and fans on all sides.
In a statement, Josh says, "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."
He adds, "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."
In addition to his band, at each stop on the tour, Josh will be joined by a local orchestra and choir.
The tour kicks off October 2 in Boise, Idaho, and will run through mid-November. Fan club pre-sales start May 7 at JoshGroban.com. Citi® cardmembers can get their hands on tickets starting May 8, and everyone else can get theirs starting May 10 via Ticketmaster and LiveNation.com.
Look for Josh on The View May 9. He'll also sit for an interview on CBS This Morning May 10, and perform on that show May 11.
