Performer Info

Victoria Justice: Victoria Justice is an American actress and singer. She is best known for playing the roles of Tori Vega on Victorious and Lola Martinez on Zoey 101.

Big Time Rush: Big Time Rush is the latest and hottest incarnation of US boy bands thrilling the youth of the world. While N'Sync was a male group that was formed with an influence by Disney (Justin Timberlake and J.C. Chasez were members of the Mickey Mouse Club), Big Time Rush is the brainchild of Nickelodeon. With their hit, self-titled TV show promoting their music -- or visa versa -- Big Time Rush has filled a gap in pop music while also creating a classic blending of television and music. While Big Time Rush might've had the backing of Nickelodeon parent company Viacom at their start, these four boys are making a name for themselves through television ratings, record sales, and huge international concert dates. Big Time Rush’s 2012 tour takes them from the East to the West and everywhere in-between.

The popular boy band began with a casting call for a television show, asking for actors that could also perform vocally. The final roster came to Kendall Schmidt (the leader), James Maslow (the heartthrob), Carlos Pena Jr. (the funny/tough guy), and Logan Henderson (the brains). After the series was officially picked up, it was then announced that the four stars of the show would form a singing group to release music and perform concert dates outside of the show. While filming of the series began in August of 2009, the name of the group wasn't chosen until right before filming began. As the four characters on the show are hockey players from Minnesota, the real-life quartet came up with the hockey phrase "big time rush" as their official moniker.

The self-titled theme song of the television program became the band's first single, which debuted with a strong presence on iTunes. With popularity from the TV show building, Big Time Rush's second single, "Halfway There," peaked at #93 on Billboard's Hot 100, making it their first mainstream success. Big Time Rush had the luxury of testing the album's singles on their television show, and then commercially releasing of the songs. At this point, Big Time Rush hadn't engaged in any concert dates, as execs were waiting for their popularity to build. With the successful television show and singles backing them, Big Time Rush released their debut album B.T.R. in October 2010. The album featured all four hit singles, as well as some new ones: The track "Boyfriend", which was co-written and produced by Snoop Dogg, soon became a popular single. The success of the album finally prompted Big Time Rush to begin performing tour dates, with the group performing countless concert dates in 2010; so much so, that their tour dates for 2011 have been limited.

With a hit television show and rumors of a second album, Big Time Rush still finds time to perform in support of some big acts, such as Selena Gomez. Big Time Rush kicks off a huge list of tour dates from Coast to Coast, North to South. Make sure to keep track of where the BTR boys are headed and stay updated on new tour dates.
