Under the Influence Tour follows the group's latest CD release of same title and will feature songs from this latest recording as well as other favorites-old and new. The CD is a re-imagined collection of the group's all-time favorite songs, performed in collaboration with many of the superstar artists and undisputed music icons that made them famous.
Caroline Glaser, a favorite from this past season of NBC's hit show "The Voice," will bring what Shakira calls her "angelic" voice on the road this fall as opener for the critically acclaimed a cappella group. The Under the Influence Tour kicked off in Columbia, MO on October 16 and will hit Omaha, Denver, Houston, Dallas, Kansas City, Louisville, Chicago, Boston, Cleveland, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Nashville and more over two months before wrapping up in Mesa, AZ on December 31. The tour follows a month-long run of club dates which launched in New York on September 7 where fans lined up two hours before the show was scheduled to go on to make sure they got tickets. The mini-tour took her to Chicago, Ames, St. Louis and Tulsa where she received rave reviews. Jerry Wofford of The Tulsa World called Glaser "sweet and bubbly' and said while her set up was simple, "her voice and talent was all she needed to hook the crowd." Caroline will also be playing a handful of solo shows during the tour. For more information, visit www.carolineglaser.com.
