Owl City Announce October UK Tour
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young otherwise known as Owl City has announced a tour of the UK in October. He will be bringing his brand of electronic pop to London, Birmingham, Manchester and Oxford. Owl City tickets will go on-sale at 12pm on Friday 13th July and are available from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
When it came time to record Owl City’s third album, the Minnesota native set himself the following challenge: “Over the past several years I'd become fascinated with trying to capture magic in a jar through simple, concise pop songs,” he says. “I saw it as a great challenge to try to come up with catchy, unique, and memorable songs because it was a new method of songwriting I'd never approached before. I believe artists should never look back or repeat themselves and this was a new frontier for me.”
The announcement of Owl City’s The Midsummer Station World Tour comes on the heels of a massive first week for “Good Time” – the debut single off Young’s forthcoming album that features a duet with “Call Me Maybe” pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen. The song was added by hundreds of radio stations across the globe and sold 140,000 copies in the first week earning “Good Time” a #18 debut on the Billboard Hot 100. The track also found fans in the press with raves coming in from Entertainment Weekly who said the single “…goes down easier than a frozen margarita at a beachfront tiki bar,” Billboard chimed in with “…a track that could become a radio staple for the rest of the summer,” and MTV described the single as “…a sparkling, synth-heavy pop jam that was tailor-made to soundtrack all summer activities.”
With “Good Time” already making itself heard as this summer’s feel-good anthem, Owl City has set the stage for The Midsummer Station. If you miss Owl City this month on his SOLD OUT UK/EU promo tour, don’t fret as the fall tour tickets will go on sale July 13th at 12pm local time.
