FSCJ Artist Series to Present Susan Boyle in Concert, 11/6
Grammy nominated singing sensation Susan Boyle is embarking on her first US tour in October 2014, with a stop at Jacksonville's Times-Union Center's Moran Theater on Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 7:30PM. Tickets go on sale Monday, June 16, 2014 at 10AM through the FSCJ Artist Series, the official presenter of the Jacksonville show.
For the very first time in her phenomenally successful career, Susan will be holding her own on American stages performing a sensational and contemporary repertoire of iconic album tracks and never-heard-before classics that will captivate and enthrall her audiences.
The exclusive 21-date city tour presented by AEG Live begins in San Diego, CA on October 8 before touring coast-to-coast, visiting a host of different states including Texas, Arizona, Georgia, and Florida.
Speaking about her first US tour, Susan Boyle said, "This is a brilliant moment for me. I am so very proud to be announcing that I will be performing in my very own tour in the USA. This really is fantastic. The past five years have been incredible, and it just keeps getting better. I have spoken so often about wanting to tour America and be able to visit different cities for the first time, I'm so excited. This really will be fantastic, and I can't wait for October. The USA embraced and supported me from the beginning, and it really feels like a second home, so I can't wait to get on the road and perform there."
Susan Boyle earned rave reviews for her sell-out Scottish and UK Tours in 2013 and 2014 and begins the first part of her world tour in the USA.
To date, the list of Susan's successes is, in itself, compelling reading. 650 million YouTube hits and the most watched clip of 2009. Two Grammy nominations, over 22 million albums sold, number one albums in over 40 countries, and more platinum album certifications than can be counted. Boyle is the first and only person ever to enter the Billboard 200 at number one with a debut album and spend six consecutive weeks at the top, with five albums and a sixth on its way in five years. Susan performed to half a billion people on the finale of China's Got Talent, in addition to headline-grabbing performances on the biggest TV shows around the globe. Susan has sung for the Pope, the Queen, ticked off her wish list of meeting musical and screen idols, and smashed musical records previously held by The Beatles that had remained unchanged since the 1960's, by achieving two simultaneous number one albums in the US and the UK in 12 months. In 2011 she became the first female artist in 65 years of the UK charts to have three albums go straight to number one in succession. Coupled with a successful autobiography, a musical about her life story, and a sellout UK tour, Susan Boyle is an unstoppable force.
Boyle's accolades in the USA are immense. Signed to Syco/Columbia since 2009, she is the first and only person over 50 years old to debut at number one with her first album and first solo act and the only female artist to have two albums, I Dreamed A Dream and The Gift at number one in both the UK and USA within one year, a record previously held by The Beatles. Boyle also holds the record for the most pre-release orders ever in Amazon history, with four consecutive albums reaching number one on the top four "Best Sellers Charts," worldwide.
