Vocal sensations Pentatonix, who are about to embark on their very first – and completely sold out – European tour, have announced dates for their upcoming North American headline tour, including a Chicago Theatre concert performance on Saturday, February 8, 2014. Show time will be 7:30pm.
Pentatonix has just released their second album PTX Volume 2. The new recording will feature 8 brand new tracks, including 3 original songs, 4 covers and a modern twist on the classic “Hit The Road Jack.” A special iTunes release features a 7-song Daft Punk medley, its video just released via the group’s YouTube Channel, as well as a mash-up of Swedish House Mafia hits “Save The World” and “Don’t Worry Child” as an album-only bonus track.
Pentatonix recently won the YouTube Music Award in the “Response of The Year” category for their cover of “Radioactive” alongside Lindsey Stirling. The video has garnered almost 45 million views. Online, Pentatonix’s YouTube channel boasts almost 160 million views, buoyed by nearly 1.9 Million subscribers, and is one of the Top 100 most subscribed-to music channels. The group also has more than 550,000 Facebook fans and nearly 150,000 Twitter followers. The band’s latest video release, a cover of Lorde’s #1 hit “Royals,” has garnered more than 11 million views and is the most-viewed YouTube cover of the New Zealand star’s highly-duplicated indie anthem. Additionally, the group’s a cappella opus – “Evolution Of Music” – has now eclipsed 22 million YouTube views, after gathering nearly 5.5 million in its first week. The video spans 1,000 years of music in just 4 minutes, includes some of the most popular songs from the last dozen centuries and has been featured by The Huffington Post, Mashable and the Yahoo! homepage.
