In overwhelming response to their sold-out “Better With U Tour,” Big Time Rush announced today that they will kick off “Big Time Summer Tour,” performing in over 50 cities across the US and Canada including stops in Montreal, London, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. Beginning on July 5th in Columbus, OH, the Nickelodeon stars and Columbia Recording artists will perform songs off their latest album Elevate including “Music Sounds Better With U,” “All Over Again” and “Elevate.” During select dates, emerging Australian pop phenomenon Cody Simpson will open for Big Time Rush. Additional acts will be announced shortly. Tickets for the tour go on sale to the public beginning March 10th at 10 a.m. at www.ticketmaster.ca.
“We can’t wait to hit the road again!” said Big Time Rush. “The Better With U tour has been amazing and we’re incredibly grateful to our fans who have supported us and made our first headlining tour a success.”
The “Big Time Summer Tour” will hit famed arenas such as PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ, First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Chicago, IL and Comcast Center in Boston, MA, once again, bringing their powerhouse performance to fans across the country.
Big Time Rush was recently nominated for “Favorite Music Group” at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards along with LMFAO, Black Eyed Peas, and Lady Antebellum. This is their second nomination in the category. They are also scheduled to perform on “Live with Kelly” on March 9.
Big Time Rush – Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena Jr. and Logan Henderson – recently released their second album, Elevate. The highly anticipated follow-up to the group’s US Gold-certified debut BTR, Elevate features tracks including “Music Sounds Better With U (featuring Mann),” “Show Me” and “All Over Again,” plus brand-new music that will debut on upcoming episodes of the TV series. And on March 6th, Big Time Rush will release the soundtrack for their movie, Big Time Movie, exclusively on iTunes. The soundtrack features covers of beloved Beatles songs including “Help,” “Revolution” and “Hard Day’s Night.” Big Time Movie will premiere on Saturday, March 10th at 8pm, only on Nickelodeon (US).
