Groban's 29-city Awake Tour kicks off February 17, at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, N.Y., and runs through most of the early spring, wrapping up in grand style with a show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 7.
Awake, Groban's third album, was released November 7, and features a host of heavyweight guest stars including Dave Matthews, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Imogen Heap, and Herbie Hancock, all of whom help the velvet voiced singer continue to expand his musical versatility.
Members of Groban's fan club, Friends of Josh Groban or FOJG as they're known to each other, can take advantage of a special pre-sale that starts November 15 at 10 a.m. and runs through the following day at 10 p.m. Non-fan club members will have to wait until November 16 at 10 a.m. to buy their pre-sale tickets at JoshGroban.com.
The singer started touring seriously in 2004 and was on the road for most of that year. The trek extended well into 2005 and by the time he finished the final encore, Groban had performed 109 headlining concerts for over 820,000 ticket holders and grossed more than $45 million.
