Straight No Chaser, #SNClive, Fox Theatre
The Nine Network and Fox Concerts presents Straight No Chaser's #SNClive Fall 2012 Tour at the Fabulous Fox Theatre on Saturday, November 10 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now through MetroTix and prices start at $29.50.
Straight No Chaser – who was featured on the "Generation YouTube" episode of ABC's 20/20 – is using the tour to continue expanding on their social media interaction with fans. The group credits a large amount of its success to its early adoption and encouragement of sharing content. "This group started because of a viral video on YouTube," explains group member Randy Stine. "From day one, we have encouraged fans to upload photos and videos from our shows, even expanding venue photo policies to ensure that this was possible. We are excited to really drive home the idea of building a fan community around content by naming our tour #SNCLive." As its name suggest, #SNClive will be a multi-platform concert event, with the hashtag giving fans a way to search and categorize content specific to this tour across all social media platforms.
The tour follows seven shows this summer and the first ever Straight No Chaser Cruise – CHASERS AT SEA – on the Carnival Destiny. Leaving port from Miami on October 11th, fans will travel to Key West, FL and Cozumel, Mexico, returning on October 14th. For more information about CHASERS AT SEA visit www.snccruise.com.
PBS will also continue to support Straight No Chaser by airing their highly successful TV special, SONGS OF THE DECADES, during the fall pledge period. The special shows Straight No Chaser taking a musical journey through the pop songbook, from doo-wop to contemporary pop, all performed with the distinctive SNC twist and filmed during the group's exclusive summer concert engagement at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City in 2011.
In addition to their cruise and upcoming dates, Straight No Chaser is currently in the studio recording their fourth full-length album. More details on the upcoming album will be released soon.
