ROBIN THICKE AND JENNIFER HUDSON TO CO-HEADLINE

SIX-WEEK US TOUR BEGINNING MARCH 31

 

[February 18, 2009, New York, NY] – Grammy winning, platinum superstar and recording artist Robin Thicke and Grammy and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson are set to embark on a multi-city co-headlining tour beginning March 31st at Albany, NY’s Palace Theater.  The Robin Thicke -Jennifer Hudson Tour will bring together two of the most distinctive and enduring voices in the current world of R&B music across major US cities including New York, Atlanta , Chicago, Los Angeles and more.  Tickets go on sale today for the Palace Theater date and American Express pre-sales are available in most markets.

 

World renown for her astonishing live vocal prowess, this marks the first official tour for Hudson, who recently won a Grammy Award for “Best R&B Album” for her RIAA-certified Gold self-titled debut album.  “I am so grateful” stated Hudson. “My first Grammy and my first tour, it doesn’t get any better than this!”  Hudson also received three NAACP Image Awards for “Outstanding New Artist,” “Outstanding Album” and “Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration” for “I’m His Only Woman” featuring Fantasia.   

 

Sparked by the success of her hit single “Spotlight,” Jennifer Hudson entered at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart after its September 30th  release on Arista Records.  With a total of 217,720 units sold, the chart-topping entry was the biggest first week for a debut R&B female since November 2004. Hudson’s current single, the beautiful mid-tempo “If This Isn’t Love,” is steadily climbing the charts while the Diane Martel-directed video recently premiered on AOL.   

 

Robin Thicke, the award-winning multiplatinum superstar, returned to center stage with his 2008 release Something Else, a joyful and modern tribute to the ‘70s soul and pop records that have inspired an extraordinary career. Debuting at #3 on The Billboard 200, Something Else is Thicke’s highest charted album to date. 

 

Thicke’s previous album The Evolution Of Robin Thicke, now on its way to double platinum status, includes the mega hit “Lost Without U” which became the #1 most played song on the Urban Adult Contemporary BDS as well as topping four Billboard charts simultaneously:  #1 R&B /Hip Hop album, #1 Hot R&B / Hip Hop song, #1 Hot R&B Hip Hop Airplay, and #1 Hot Adult R&B Airplay.
