The Digitour, a multi-week, multi-city music tour featuring some of the biggest self-made YouTube stars, is coming back in Spring 2012.
On last year’s Digitour, YouTube megastars including Dave Days, The Gregory Brothers, David Choi, DeStorm, MysteryGuitarMan, and Ricky Ficarelli, went on a 6-week 27-city national tour, kicking off at Google headquarters and culminating at the Tubefilter Hollywood Meetup The Digitour Debriefed. Artists on the Digitour represented over 6 million subscribers and one billion combined views on YouTube.
This year’s lineup includes musicians and personalities with a combined 10 million subscribers and two billion views. Launching in Los Angeles on March 1, 2012, the Digitour will feature headliners Dave Days, DeStorm, Ricky Ficarelli, Alex Goot, Asher Monroe, Nice Peter, and The Key of Awesome as they hit New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and Houston, among other cities.
“I am so excited for the DigiTour this year and for the opportunity to get out there again, meet the fans, and perform with so many awesome and talented people,” Digitour performer Ricky Ficarelli told Tubefilter. “Digitour 2012 is gonna rock!”
“I am so excited to be doing the Digitour again this year,” Sarah Evershed Penna, one of the Digitour founders and producers, told Tubefilter. “It really shows that online video and social media is continuing to grow. We are thrilled to be offering audiences a chance to see their favorite YouTube musicians on the road again.”
Meredith Valiando, who also founded and produces the Digitour, told Tubefilter, “I am so excited to be in production on the 2nd Digitour! We changed a lot of skeptical minds who thought online fans would not buy tickets. It is an absolute honor to work with these stars and give them a vehicle, a forty five foot tour bus to be exact, to take their videos on the road and to produce the live version of videos that have received over 2 billion combined views.”
Tickets go on sale starting December 19, 2011.
