GMA Dove Award-winning 2001 New Artist of the Year,
Plus One, continues to sell out concerts across the country as part of their
40-city headline tour which began April 5th. The tour sold out over half of
the first 14 shows and continues to gain momentum on the heels of the RIAA
gold certification for groups debut project, The Promise.
Plus One’s recent performances have captivated audiences with dramatic
staging and cutting edge lighting and sound. Audiences continue to respond
to Plus One which resulted in continued sold out shows in major markets
including a recent audience of over 7,000 in Houston. Other sell-outs in key
markets such as Seattle and Portland continue the momentum with several
promoters adding second shows to accommodate the demand for tickets.
“We are reaching a whole new market with this tour,” says Charles Dorris of
the William Morris Agency, who represents Plus One. “There is a huge, pent
up demand for artists like Plus One that appeal to young fans.”
The group, which was recognized as the top-selling artist in the Christian
marketplace for 2000 (CBA Marketplace), continues to solidify its presence
and position as the 2001 GMA New Artist Of The Year, with their touring
success and continued forays into mainstream and broadened Christian arenas.
“We are so honored to be recognized by our peers in the music industry
through the New Artist Of The Year award, and it significantly adds to that
recognition, to see the impact of the group by tangible means such as the
audience response to this current tour and the sold-out shows in multiple
markets.” said Mitchell Solarek, manager, Mitchell Artist Management.
Bruce Adolph of Creation Concerts adds, “This is the biggest tour of the
spring. Our Seattle show sold out three weeks in advance and we could have
sold another 1000 tickets.”
Plus One, the top selling group in the Christian market for 2000, has
achieved unprecedented mainstream and Christian publicity appearances,
coverage in Teen People and The Wall Street Journal and recently starred in
an episode of CBS’s Touched By An Angel. The group has also appeared on
Entertainment Tonight, CNN, CBS Evening News and Live! with Regis & Kelly.
Plus One will continue to tour throughout the spring and will begin recording
their highly anticipated sophomore studio project this coming fall.
“Plus One has continued to go beyond expectations in every area of their
career. We’re all very excited about the success of the band and look
forward to the future with this great new group,” stated Barry Landis,
gm/vp, Atlantic Records. Their impact on our culture continues to motivate
and inspire us all.”
