Big Time Rush, Victoria Justice Summer Break Tour Starts Tomorrow

Boy band Big Time Rush with fellow Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice will begin their co-headlining Summer Break Tour tomorrow in Los Angeles at the Gibson Amphitheater. Performing 36 shows in seven weeks, they’ll travel between 22 states. Fans got a taste of what is to come this summer when the band and Justice performed together at the House of Blues with an acoustic rendition of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.”

The Summer Break Tour will support Big Time Rush’s third studio album 24/Seven, a portion of which was recorded during their last tour – Big Time Summer Tour. All four boys in the band – Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena Jr., Logan Henderson - had a hand in writing their first hit single off the album “Like Nobody’s Around.” Musically the album’s sound is similar to the group’s first two albums, traditional pop with simple lyrics. The addition of electric guitar and the fact that most of the song’s were written or co-written by at least one of the band members, are the primary differences between Big Time Rush first two albums and 24/Seven.

Victoria Justice, most known for her role in the Nickelodeon sitcom “Victorious” will soon release her first solo album. During her time on the show, she released three “Victorious” albums. The Summer Break Tour will give Victoria time to transition from her lead role to a solo artist. It’s her second tour and tells ARTISTDirect.com she’ll open with “Freak the Freak Out.” She’s also planning to have a huge light show, with cool props and dancers. One song you’re sure to hear live is Victoria’s new single “Gold” which was released during On Air with Ryan Seacrest on June 17. Victoria Justice’s “Victorious” co-star Ariana Grande is also making the transition from television to the stage. Grande, who has been vocally compared to Mariah Carey, is releasing her first studio album in August. Rumor has it Ariana Grande will tour with Justin Bieber, whom she shares a Manager with.

Summer Break Tour tickets are averaging $207. In comparison, Justin Bieber tickets are averaging $178 over 30 shows.
