UNCASVILLE, CT (September 23, 2016) – Panic! At The Disco yesterday announced that they will embark on the Death Of A Bachelor Tour, a headline U.S. arena run in celebration of the success of their gold-certified fifth studio album Death Of A Bachelor, supported by MisterWives and special guests Saint Motel. The 35-city tour kicks off February 24th in Connecticut at Mohegan Sun Arena.  The show begins at 7:00pm.

Earlier this summer, the Recording Industry Association of America honored Panic! At The Disco with the gold certification of their album Death Of A Bachelor for exceeding 500,000 units sold. Death Of A Bachelor was one of only eleven albums released in 2016 to receive an RIAA certification this year, and the only alternative genre release to reach this milestone. The album also spawned RIAA certified gold singles “Hallelujah” and “Victorious.”

The New York Times praised the album saying, “[it] evokes both the flamboyant swagger of Queen and the mechanized gleam of Daft Punk.” P!ATD’s summer co-headline tour with Weezer played to more than half a million fans and was a critical success with media praising their live show as “explosive, anthemic” (Pollstar) and “action-packed minutes of skyscraping vocals and inventive visuals” (Indianapolis Star) while calling Urie’s showmanship “[a]Freddie Mercury-channeling vision of modern rock ‘n’ roll excess” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).

Produced by Jake Sinclair, Death Of A Bachelor marks the first release from Panic! At The Disco in nearly two years, following 2013′s acclaimed Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!. Aside from debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart, the album has produced five top 15-charting hits on the “Hot Rock Songs” chart with “Hallelujah,” “Emperor’s New Clothes,” “LA Devotee,” current single “Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time,” and the album’s energetic, lead single “Victorious” charting Top 10 at Alternative.

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas.  Mohegan Sun Arena was also ranked among the top 10 arena venues in the nation for 2014, regardless of size.

Within less than a year, Ariana Grande captured #1 on the Billboard Top 200 twice—first with her Republic Records debut Yours Truly and also with its 2014 follow-up, My Everything.

Yours Truly yielded the game-changing pop smash “The Way” featuring Mac Miller, which went triple-platinum, landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and seized #1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs chart. Meanwhile, the platinum-selling My Everything garnered a Grammy Award nomination for “Best Pop Vocal Album” and spawned the six times-platinum hit “Problem.” Upon the single’s release, Ariana became “the youngest woman to debut with over 400K sold first-week,” while the song ranked as the 5th “highest digital song debut for a female artist” and 9th highest ever. Moreover, it debuted at #1 in 85 countries, topping the iTunes Overall Top Songs and Pop Songs charts for four weeks.

During release week, My Everything was #1 on Spotify as Ariana personally rose to #1 on Billboard’s Artists 100 chart. She also became the first woman in history and the first artist since Michael Jackson to simultaneously have three songs—“Problem,” “Break Free” featuring Zedd, and “Bang Bang” with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J—in the Top 6 of the Digital Songs Chart. “Bang Bang” went platinum and was Grammy-nominated for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” By the end of the year, she landed four songs in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100; the most of any artist in 2014. Ariana has enjoyed five Hot 100 Top 10 smashes.

In 2013, Ariana was named “Best New Artist” at the American Music Awards.  Other accolades followed, with Ariana winning “Favorite Breakout Artist” at the People’s Choice Awards 2014, the “Young Influencer Award” at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the “Radio Disney Chart Topper Award,” “Choice Female Artist” and “Choice Single” “Problem” at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, and more.  At the 2014 MTV VMAS, “Problem” was named “Best Pop Video” as well.  In November, Ariana took home the award for “Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock” at the 2015 American Music Awards.

2016 sees Ariana release her mega-anticipated third full-length album, Dangerous Woman, driven by the title track, which captured #1 on both iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart and Top Pop Songs Chart minutes after release.  Dangerous Woman also debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, earning her the distinction of becoming the first artist to debut on the chart with the lead single from her first three albums.

Eric Church Brings 2017 Holding My Own Tour to Uncasville

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Performing live in Mohegan Sun Arena on April 27th & 28th

UNCASVILLE, CT (September 15, 2016) – EMI Nashville recording artist Eric Church is hitting the road next spring and will bring the “Holdin’ My Own Tour” to Mohegan Sun Arena on April 27th and April 28th.  Both shows will begin at 8:00pm.

Tickets are $99.00, $79.00 & $59.00 and go on sale Friday, September 23rd at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com or call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, September 24th, subject to availability.

For the first time ever, there will be no support act on this tour. Eric Church and the ECB will play two full sets with an intermission in between. In an effort to ensure his core fans get great tickets at face value, Church is revamping the pre-sale and on-sale process to eliminate scalpers from the equation.

“In this era where growing inequality seems to be the norm, we wanted to do everything within our power to put the advantage back in the hands of true fans rather than those that take advantage of the system, and by extension our people,” said John Peets, Church’s manager. “It was important to us to invest time into evaluating and redesigning the ticket buying process and build the technology to level the playing field.”

Church has secured a larger allotment of fan club tickets than in the past so Church Choir members will have much better success buying tickets in the pre-sale.  The Church Choir pre-sale will be the ONLY pre-sale. There will be no venue, credit card or radio pre-sales. Church and his team developed a new fan club pre-sale system that allows them to remove scalpers from the pre-sale process before it even happens. Scalpers that are found to be gaming the system and posing as real fans won’t receive the buy link at all.

As on past tours, Church will continue to cancel any and all orders found to be made by scalpers.  New for the Holdin’ My Own Tour, Church commissioned a proprietary technology that scrubs ticket purchases using up to 10 different data points and automatically flags orders made by scalpers.  Orders may be cancelled at any time and without warning.  Church cautions fans to stay away from the secondary market because it’s likely that tickets found there will be invalid by the time the show happens.

Finally, delivery of all ticket orders will be delayed until the days leading up to each show.  Church hopes that this will make it impossible for scalpers to complete their transactions.

By doing this – investing time and energy to create a more efficient and balanced model – the Church team is not only communicating directly to the fans the best source for face value tickets, but also building a model that protects fans and can be adopted by the industry as a whole.

“The way this album came together mandated we release it as a surprise, straight to our fans, as it was important for me to deliver the music the same way the creativity hit me—directly and swiftly. What I didn’t anticipate is that it left me scratching my head a little as this year was supposed to be spent writing.”  Church continues, “What this year’s open schedule did afford us was time to think through the way the fans experience our music live, and it was important to us that we find a way to stick to these same principles when it came to approaching our shows, down to the way they go on sale.”

Church’s 2014-2015’s The Outsiders World Tour topped Billboard’s “Hot Tours” consistently after Church set new attendance records in five markets. The Outsiders World Tour saw Church performing to over 800,000 fans in more than 65 cities with nearly 20 stops from September 2014 through September of 2015 and was named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s Must-See Tours.
