In the Do512 office, we’re pretty spot on about being able to predict which events will be the most popular with users on our website. Sho ’nuff, as soon as we posted the Colbie Caillat & Gavin Degraw Tour, the number of “likes” shot thru the cyber roof. No surprise – when two American Pop sensations announce that they’ll be embarking on a co-headlining tour, fans go nuts.
Even if you’re not a fan of pop music, it’s 99.7% likely that you’re familiar with Colbie Caillat‘s hit single “Bubbly“. After all, it’s one of the best-selling digital tracks of all time! You may have even heard it a few times more than you would have liked since it was a long-running radio hit, and featured on Youtube, TV and the PS2 karaoke game, SingStar Pop.
Caillat, the multi-platinum, two-time Grammy winning singer/songwriter was named Billboard‘s Breakthrough Artist of the Year, and recently performed one of her new tracks “Favorite Song” (a duet with Common) on Ellen.
Platinum recording artist, Gavin DeGraw’s hit singles “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and “Chariot” were almost equally as hard to miss since they scored just as much radio time. On the tour, DeGraw is planning to perform songs from his third studio album, SWEETER, including his platinum selling hit single “Not Over You,” and his just-released new single “Sweeter,” both co-written with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder.
So far, 2012 has been a great year for DeGraw. In March, Gavin perform “Sweeter” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and showed America that he isn’t just a singer when he performed on Dancing With the Stars.
Caillat and Degraw’s Summer tour will hit 22 cities before wrapping on June 29th in Highland Park, IL, and will be making their stop in Austin at The Backyard at Bee Cave. Opening for the artists will be the oh so lovable pop artist, Andy Grammer.
If you’ve never had the chance to catch a show at The Backyard : Get there early! Parking can be a pain with big shows. The City of Bee Cave is working hard to finish the road that will extend Bee Cave Parkway through to Hamilton Pool Road by July 9th. I am sure the flow of traffic and parking will improve by then, but it never hurts to be on the safe side and arrive with plenty of spare time!
