The multi-talented 15 year-old singer, actress and dancer Coco Jones will be the headlining musical act at the kick off of the North American DigiTour – bringing the best of YouTube to the Riviera Theatre in Chicago on Oct. 3 at 7:30 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm. VIP tickets sold out immediately; $25 general admission tickets are still available at TheDigiTour.com. Musical guests performing along with Coco in Chicago include YouTube singing sensations Tiffany Alvord, Luke Conard, Chase Goehring and Tion Phipps.
Oct. 3 kicks off the DigiTour’s first-ever British invasion featuring superstar YouTubers from the UK: style and beauty mavens Zoella and Tanya Burr and comedic heart-throb pranksters Marcus Butler, Caspar Lee, PointlessBlog and Jim Chapman, who will be appearing at all four DigiTour dates along with the most popular YouTubers from the US (O2L, Andrea Russett, THATSOJACK, JennXPenn, Weekly Chris, Exclamation Point, TheComputerNerd01 and more). After Chicago on October 3, the DigiTour travels to Toronto on October 4, Philadelphia on October 5 and New York City on October 6.
DigiTour 2013 follows on the heels of the sold out DigiFest NYC on June 1, 2013 which attracted more than 3,000 screaming teens who lined up around four New York City blocks to get into the world’s first-ever YouTube music festival. Check out the “superfandemonium” that broke out at DigiFest NYC and is now heading your way. DigiTour 2013 will reach over 11,000 fans in four back-to-back live shows. Another 15 million fans will follow the tour online through video content, social messaging and live streaming.
These online personalities are the rock stars of today and tomorrow. Together the UK YouTubers have more than 10 million subscribers, their individual channels average millions of views and their daily videos on their second channels get watched on average 250,000-500,000 times each day – more than some daily TV news programs. The engagement these personalities have is unprecedented.
