Emblem3's First Tour Completely Sells Out
The X Factor breakout band Emblem3 immediately sell-out shows across the US. The band kicked off their sold-out West Coast tour dates this Wednesday February 27 in Los Angeles at the Roxy to a packed house that saw fans sleeping overnight to get a prime spot in front of the stage. Their just announced East Coast tour dates went on sale this weekend and were immediate sell-outs. The sell-out demanded a second show to be added in Chicago which also sold-out instantly. The tour kicks off in Philadelphia on March 20 (see below for full dates.)
"WOW, This is incredible, all sell-out shows. A year ago we played the Roxy to 20 people and Wednesday night it was packed! The energy from the fans has been amazing and we can't wait to come to New York for the first time and play in front of all the Emblems, thank you and see you soon!"- Wes Stromberg
Brothers Wesley and Keaton Stromberg (19 &16) and lifelong friend Drew Chadwick (20) from Huntington Beach, CA who make up Emblem3, premiered three new songs live at the Roxy including the Benji and Joel Madden produced "XOXO", "Just For One Day" and their debut single, "Chloe (You're The One I Want)" in which The Hollywood Reporter describes as "a mix of sugary pop confection and a Sublime-inspired beach vibe," and will be released this Spring. The band are currently in the studio at work on their debut album which is being executive produced by award winning songwriter and producer Savan Kotecha (Maroon 5, Usher, One Direction). The album will be the first release on "Mr Kanani," Savan Kotecha's imprint on Syco Music released through Columbia Records.
Fans will have another chance to catch Emblem3 when they launch their "GOIN' BACK 2 CALI" tour in April 2013. The "GOIN' BACK 2 CALI" tour will allow fans to get up close and personal with Drew, Keaton and Wes and determine which city the band visits by voting their city online. The tour will kick-off in NYC and culminate in California, with further details to be announced.
Popular duo MKTO, compromised of Tony Oller (21) and Malcolm Kelly (20) will open for Emblem3 on select dates. The music video for the duo's debut single "Thank You" has amassed over 1.5Million views, check it out here: http://www.vevo.com/watch/mkto/thank-you/USSM21201181 .
