UPDATE: A Cappella Sensation Straight No Chaser Announces the #SNClive Fall 2012 Tour; Group to Record Fourth LP This Summer(May 07, 2012)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/12 -- ATCO/Atlantic recording group Straight No Chaser has announced details for their upcoming #SNClive Fall 2012 Tour. Dates for the fall tour start in Burlington, VT on October 24th and continue through late December (see itinerary below). Tickets will be available to the public starting Friday, May 11th. A full list of Tour Dates will be available on Straight No Chaser's website at www.sncmusic.com/tour/.
Straight No Chaser -- who was featured on the "Generation YouTube" episode of ABC's 20/20 -- is using the tour to continue expanding on their social media interaction with fans. The group credits a large amount of its success to its early adoption and encouragement of sharing content. "This group started because of a viral video on YouTube," explains group member Randy Stine. "From day one, we have encouraged fans to upload photos and videos from our shows, even expanding venue photo policies to ensure that this was possible. We are excited to really drive home the idea of building a fan community around content by naming our tour #SNClive." As its name suggests, #SNClive will be a multi-platform concert event, with the hashtag giving fans a way to search and categorize content specific to this tour across all social media platforms.
The tour will follow seven shows this summer and the first ever Straight No Chaser Cruise -- CHASERS AT SEA -- on the Carnival Destiny. Leaving port from Miami on October 11th, fans will travel to Key West, FL and Cozumel, Mexico, returning on October 14th. For more information about CHASERS AT SEA visit www.snccruise.com.
PBS will also continue to support Straight No Chaser by airing their highly successful TV special, SONGS OF THE DECADES, during the June and Fall pledge periods. The special shows Straight No Chaser taking a musical journey through the pop songbook, from doo-wop to contemporary pop, all performed with the distinctive SNC twist and filmed during the group's exclusive summer concert engagement at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City in 2011.
In addition to their cruise and upcoming dates, Straight No Chaser will be going into the studio this summer to record their fourth full-length album, which is set to be released this fall. More details on the upcoming album will be released in the coming months.
