A Cappella Show GOBSMACKED! to Kick Off North American Tour in Detroit This Fall

Nic Doodson, producer and creator of GOBSMACKED!, has announced that the sensational, next-generation a cappella show, GOBSMACKED!, will begin its first U.S. tour set to play 120 performances throughout North America.

The tour will kick off in Detroit, with stops in Charlotte, Dallas, Washington D.C. and Chicago. Additional cities will be announced at a later date.

Direct from sell-out seasons in London, Hong Kong and Edinburgh comes a mind-blowing vocal show that redefines the human voice. Featuring the reigning world-champion beatboxer, Ball-Zee, and an international cast of world-class vocalists, GOBSMACKED! weaves stories through all forms of a cappella from traditional street corner harmonies to cutting-edge, multi-track live looping.

Audiences will experience heart-stopping singing and jaw-dropping beatboxing in this latest break-out show that everyone is talking about -it's funny, joyful and uplifts the spirits of all ages!

Though one of the oldest forms of music, a cappella singing has only recently broken through to mainstream popularity. Movies such as Pitch Perfect, TV shows such as Glee and groups like Pentatonix, Straight No Chaser and Naturally 7 have catapulted a cappella from street corners to stadiums. The producers of GOBSMACKED! have created a show for the whole family that takes the audience on a journey through music. GOBSMACKED! not only showcases modern a cappella at its best but also tells an urban tale of love, loss and redemption.

Executive Producer and Creator Nic Doodson, Director Alexandra Spencer-Jones and Musical Director and Co-Creator Jack Blume bring this unique musical experience to life after representing some of the most exciting a cappella and theatrical talent of the last few years. They have worked with artists such as Daft Punk, Britney Spears, Jose Carreras, Buena Vista Social Club and Soweto Gospel Choir and have produced and directed shows in venues such as the O2 Arena in London and The Sydney Opera House.
