On Monday, multi-Platinum-selling, award-winning singer, songwriter and global superstar Josh Groban announced his fall 2018 arena tour. This is Groban's first tour since his sold-out "Stages Tour" (2015-16). Joining him throughout the tour is Tony Award-winning, multi-Platinum-selling recording artist and actress Idina Menzel.
"Josh Groban: Bridges Tour" kicks off in Duluth, Georgia, on Oct. 18, and will hit more than 17 cities around the country before wrapping up in New York City at the famed Madison Square Garden on Nov. 18. The show will visit Blue Cross Arena in Rochester Tuesday, Nov. 13.
"I can't wait to get back on the road and play old and new songs for my fans," Groban said. "It's the thing I most look forward to: Creating a show each tour that gives everyone there, including me, an experience they want to hold onto."
Menzel added, "So excited to join my friend, the supremely talented Josh Groban on tour. We've done some great things together in the past, but this will top them all. And most importantly, can't wait to reunite with friends and fans everywhere!"
