Fans have been snatching up digital downloads of the tunes he covered during the NBC reality talent television show. Lucca’s cover of Hugo’s version of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” earned him the No.3 spot on iTunes’ overall singles sales chart and No.1 on iTunes’ rock singles chart. His duet of The Beatles’ “Yesterday” with his coach, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, earned a spot in the Top 5 on iTunes’ overall singles sales chart and pop singles sales chart.
The 36-year-old singer, songwriter, producer and actor isn’t a newbie when it comes to performing or TV appearances. Lucca got his start in show biz at age 14 on the “Mickey Mouse Club,” followed by acting roles on TV and movies as well as commercials.
In 1997 he began pursuing music by self-releasing his first album, So Satisfied. Since then he’s put out more than half a dozen more albums including 2011’s Under The Influence. Lucca has taken the stage with acts including *NSYNC, Sara Bareilles and Marc Anthony and his songs have been featured on TV shows including “Friday Night Lights,” “Brothers & Sisters” and “Felicity.”
After a few headline shows and festival appearances between June and September, Lucca’s fall tour begins Oct. 3 in Marshfield, Wis., at Wildwood Park Pavilion. Dates are booked through Nov. 8 at Pittsburgh’s Club Café.
Tickets went on sale today. VIP packages are available including a pre-show meet & greet and a Tony Lucca keepsake.
