He is the solo voice behind four albums, each of which have been certified multi-platinum, and is currently promoting his fifth, Illuminations. Josh Groban is undoubtedly one of the music industry’s most important discoveries and biggest success stories in recent years. Stay up to date on all the latest news concerning Josh Groban tour dates, right here at Eventful.
The reality of his fame is somewhat ironic when you learn that a Josh Groban record, let alone sold-out Josh Groban tour dates, were never really part of the star’s plan at all. Having originally chosen to pursue acting, the singing gig came almost by accident for Groban after his vocal coach submitted a tape of the then 17-year old singing to legendary producer and composer, David Foster. Foster immediately requested Josh Groban’s talents as a fill-in for a sick Andrea Bocelli at a rehearsal for the 1998 Grammy awards. And so, a star was born. Now, more than 24 million records later, Josh Groban Tour Dates are one of the hottest events on the operatic pop / contemporary classical music calendar.
Reflective of his mass appeal, the Josh Groban tour schedule is always a packed one, with tour dates taking him right across the globe. And his work doesn’t end there. In addition to those much anticipated Josh Groban tour dates, the star can often be seen performing at major industry or charity events, oftentimes alongside some of music’s most distinguished names including the likes of Celine Dion, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Sarah Brightman, Andrea Bocelli, Charlotte Church and Herbie Hancock. Part and parcel of the celebrity outfit, TV appearances are another important aspect of Josh Groban’s work – particularly around the launch of a new Josh Groban concert schedule. Indeed, television was notably instrumental in generating buzz for Josh Groban in the earlier stages of his career, when he appeared in the 2001 season finale of Ally McBeal, playing a singer. Trained as an actor, but discovered for his singing ability, it seems somewhat fitting then, that it was the combination of both in Ally McBeal which acted as the all-important launching pad to what is now a stellar career.
As a new wave of Josh Groban tour dates begins rolling out later this spring, fans will want to stay informed on if and when he will be playing a venue near you.
