Live Nation has today announced that ARIA Award-winning Australian pop darling, Samantha Jade will be the opening act for three-time Grammy Award-winning and US multi-platinum-selling group Pentatonix on their Australia/New Zealand tour this month. The tour kicks off in Auckland this Saturday at Spark Arena.
Since bursting onto the pop scene with ‘Step Up’ in 2006, Samantha has gone from strength to strength and will be releasing her fifth studio album later this year. Her new single ‘In The Morning’ follows the wildly catchy ‘Bounce’ and is out now. Samantha will join the group on all tour dates and said, “I’m so excited to be going on tour with Pentatonix. I’ve been a fan of theirs for a long time, I really respect how incredibly talented they are. It’s so hard to do what they do, I remember watching YouTube videos of them and being amazed.”
Unaccompanied by instruments, Pentatonix excel in harmonies, percussive sounds and beatbox delivered in their own Grammy-winning-style arrangements, stemming from influences of pop, dubstep, electro, hip-hop, country and classical music.
