Gavin DeGraw Gears Up for US Amphitheater Tour

Platinum recording artist Gavin DeGraw has announced his co-headlining 2012 North American Summer tour with Colbie Caillat! The tour will kick off Friday, May 25th in Simpsonville, SC and hit 50 cities before wrapping on August 31st, in Eugene, OR. The full list of dates can be found below. Pre-sale tickets will be available for fan club members beginning Tuesday, March 27th, while the general on-sale will begin Friday, March 30th, and Saturday March 31st.

DeGraw is no stranger to the top of the charts, he first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, Chariot, which sold over a million copies, earned platinum certification, and yielded three hit singles: “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and the title-track, “Chariot.” Gavin’s self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles “In Love With A Girl,” which Billboard dubbed “a rocking homerun,” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.” In 2009, Gavin released Free as a gift to his die-hard fans clamoring for recorded versions of Gavin’s live favorites. On the upcoming North American tour, DeGraw will perform songs from his third studio album, Sweeter, including his platinum selling hit single, “Not Over You,” and his just-released new single, “Sweeter”.

Pearl artist, Ian O’Neill will ever-so-tastefully be laying down the heavy groove of Gavin DeGraw’s pop super-songs throughout this co-headlining arena tour. Personifying what it is to be a drummer, Ian’s incredibly deep pocket flawlessly carries the band, leaving even the most tempo-deficient fan tapping their feet and bobbing their heads to Ian’s perfectly accurate timing. Filling every arena, each night of the tour, will be the warm tones of Ian’s all-maple Masters MCX drums. Complete with a 24x18 kick drum, 13x9 rack tom, 16x16 floor tom, and topped off with the 14x6.5 Dennis Chambers Signature Snare drum, Ian’s drums emanate deep tones which add a fullness to the band’s live sound. Be sure to check the full list of tour dates below to see when Ian will be bringing his masterful drumming to a town near you.
