Following a sold out show at Shepherd's Bush Empire, Owl City announces November UK Tour!
Fans up and down the country who missed out on tickets to Owl City's recent sell out Shepherd's Bush show will be pleased to hear that he has announced a string of UK dates for November. Full tour dates are below - tickets go on sale on the 4th June through www.livenation.com
Adam Young, who has spent the last 9 months touring the world, is looking forward to spending most of the summer in peaceful hibernation where he can finally concentrate on writing the next Owl City album, which is due for release this December. When he emerges in August he will hit the road with Maroon 5 and John Mayer before embarking on yet another worldwide headline tour. Tokyo Police Club and Unwed Sailor will support Owl City on the European leg of his tour.
It has been a fantastic year so far for Owl City. His swift rise from the unknown into chart topping success saw his debut single 'Fireflies' top the charts in 22 countries, including the UK where it spent 3 weeks at the No.1 spot and is currently certified gold. It has sold 6 million copies globally. His debut album 'Ocean Eyes' is also currently certified gold and has sold 1.5 million copies globally. The UK has quite clearly joined the rest of the world in tumbling head over heels for Owl City.
Adam - who has recently recorded vocals for Armin Van Buuren's new album - isn't taking a second of his staggering rise to fame for granted, he says, 'I find myself awestruck every time we tour internationally. The ability for music to transcend distance, culture and language leaves me speechless. It is such an incredible honor to have people singing my lyrics across the globe. Not a day passes where I don't find myself amazed."
