One Man + Two Tours = Owl City

The music is known as electro-pop, and the sound is something that you might expect to hear from a ten or twelve piece studio band, or at least from a keyboard that costs more than the average car. Adam Young started recording his own little ditties and pieces in his parents’ basement as a teenager, a lonely and very antisocial teenager as he would admit. This was his outlet, his muse, and it ended up landing him not one, but two U.S. tours back to back.

The exclusive iTunes release of his first major label single “Ocean Eyes” did surprisingly well for both Adam and the label, selling a respectable 20,000 digital units within one week. Following this up with a little tune that Owl City likes to call “Fireflies”, the results were staggeringly more impressive. The song was purchase 650,000 times within a three day mini-release. This sparked some major interest, as his now adoring public was learning that this was the work of just one young man.

The fall tour kicked off October 13th, selling out nearly all of its projected dates before the tour bus was even under way. After two dates in Washington State and one up in British Columbia, Owl City heads Oregon and then makes his way in a hit-or-miss pattern to close up with three shows in Texas, the final falling on October 31st.

From here, Owl City will take a much-deserved holiday break while gearing up for the newly announced re-tour, scheduled to kick off on January 21st, 2010 from Missouri. This is a tour which is geared toward the Midwest and the east coast, placing shows in Oklahoma, Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, 4 in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and Arkansas.

So Many Tours, So Little Time

Just when we think we’ve got it all planned out, they go and switch it up on us again. Only, with the tours of our favorite performers, this is usually a good thing.  Many of the top tours in the country right now are experiencing huge sellouts and great feedback from the road, prompting more tour dates and lengthened runs in order to fulfill an adoring public’s hunger. First up, we take Owl City, otherwise known as 23 year old Adam Young, who has raged out onto the music scene, completely sold out his first tour booking, and has added an entire other leg, which will begin in January of 2010.

Sister duo Tegan and Sara are finishing up their home tour stint in Canada before freshening up for the extended U.S. tour dates, backed by popular demand, to begin on February 12th, 2010. The country runaway success Zac Brown Band has just set out on the road for an extended tour stint which begun on October 15th and will run straight through to December 27th, ending at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.

Less Than Jake is planning a November kickoff of a two week North American tour which starts from Baltimore, Maryland on the 14th and winds down on the 28th from Murray, Utah. One of these dates is scheduled for our neighbors to the north, the kindly folks of Montreal, Quebec.

Planning a boom across the Midwest also in November is Hinder, kicking off from Columbia, Missouri on the 13th and wrapping it up from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on December 4th of this year. Finally, but certainly not least, A Wilhelm Scream has announced intentions of extending their North American tour, fully in swing and scheduled for closure on October 30th, with a few dates which have the tour ending around the first week in November, so far.
