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 April 2nd. 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.
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!"
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. Hudson's current single, the beautiful mid-tempo "If This Isn't Love," is steadily climbing the charts. The recently shot Diane Martel-directed video for the single will premiere on AOL on February 11th.
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.
Robin Thicke and Jennifer Hudson have teamed up with I Love All Access to provide a variety of VIP ticket packages for the tour, including premium seats, meet and greets, parties and more.
