Josh Groban Tickets – The Voice in the Wilderness
The ‘wilderness’ of Los Angeles, California, to be exact: that’s where Josh Groban was born, born to a Norwegian American mother and fathered by a Jewish American. He found he had a true voice for music in 7th grade but then had to wait with music for the sake of his grades. It was when he attended Bridges Academy that he re-discovered his love for lyrical music, even playing the penny whistle to lead him along the way. 1997 and 1998 was his inner discovery, attending the Interlochen Arts Camp, majoring in musical theater and taking voice lessons. Doors started to open majorly after that….

A simple-minded 17-year-old Groban found his way to the reality of a real deal in the music business in the years of 1997 and 1998 when Grammy-winning producer David Foster got wind of him and signed him for several high-profile events — such as the 1999 Grammy Awards as a stand-in for Andrea Bocelli, ‘The Prayer’ rehearsal with famous music artist Celine Dion, and even inauguration of Gray Davis as governor of California in January 1999. And that was only the beginning…. It took only one year at Carnegie Mellon University before he was given a record contract with Warner Bros. Records, skyrocketing him into stardom on several levels. His first album ‘Josh Groban’ was indeed a blast into the stratosphere and a personal awakening for Groban, stating the real fact that his music is always a direct reflection of who he is and what’s about. He’s had the chance to perform with the likes of Sarah Brightman for her 2000-2001 La Luna Tour, record ‘For Always’ with Lara Fabian for the ‘A.I.: Artificial Intelligence’ soundtrack, and participate in the Andre Agassi Grand Slam Event for Children with Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Robin Williams. After one album, a second album was dying to come out — entitled Closer and also produced by Foster. Featuring such powerful singles as ‘You Raise Me Up’ and ‘Oceano,’ the album received double-platinum status in mere heartbeats. You could also hear Groban in the soundtrack for ‘The Polar Express’ with the track ‘Believe.
Groban set to show the world ‘All That Echoes’
Come February 5, 2013 fans will know “All That Echoes” from Josh Groban. The sixth album to be released by the world-class vocalist will also be the fourth since 2003’s “Closer,” which produced the smash hit “You Raise Me Up” and went to the top number one on the Billboard album chart.
If you reminisce, it’s still easy to feel like Groban has come a long way in a very short time. In 2006, his third studio album, named “Awake,” featured guest appearances by the jazz pianist Herbie Hancock amd vocal group the Ladysmith Black Mambazo. A whirlwind 71-city tour followed, and he performed with the likes of Barbra Streisand and Mireille Mathieu. In short, his career was wide open and full of endless possibilities. Even as he recorded the holiday-themed “Noel,” which released in 2007, he expressed a desire to fully explore film and TV prospects, as well as tackle a role on Broadway.
Groban opened 2010 by performing the Star Spangled Banner at the BCS National Championship Game on January 7. Later in the year he collaborated with a well-known producer Rick Rubin for his fifth studio album, titled “Illuminations,” then traversed 81 cities to promote the project, with appearances Europe, in North America, and South America.
The latest project from the renowned tenor is “All That Echoes,” and he has been crisscrossing the country to promote it. Simply put, you will have to search far and wide for a place you will not be able to see Groban this fall. Along with opener Judith Hill, Groban kicked off his “In the Round” tour of North American on October 2 in Boise, Idaho and will wrap November 13 in Dallas, Texas. Of course a little longer than a month does not feel like a ton of time to promote an album, but Grobin is packing in all that he can, with 23 shows on the books.
This tour isn’t just Groban on stage. Instead, this “In the Round” experience gives fans an 360-degree absolute concert experience thanks to a stage that is placed in the middle of the venue. The concept itself piggybacked on the conception of his “Straight to You” world tour, where fans were able to experience a concert that felt like it was played in a small, intimate theater.
Groban performed on at The Hollywood Bowl three sold-out nights over the summer, playing to over 50,000 people during the Independence day on 4th July and a show at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony. He followed that by selling out symphony shows, including appearances at Franze Pavilion and Ravinia, Wolftrap.
