Atlantic Records recording artists Straight No Chaser have announced early details of their upcoming “Straight No Chaser: One Shot Tour,” which will include a stop at the Des Moines Civic Center on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m.. Tickets will go on sale Friday, May 11 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at DMPA.org, the Civic Center Ticket Office, and by phone at 515-246-2300.
The upcoming tour coincides with the 10th Anniversary of Straight No Chaser signing with Atlantic Records and the release of their debut album, “Holiday Spirits” after a video of the group performing “12 Days of Christmas” went viral on YouTube and became the most viewed video of 2007. Upon the release of “Holiday Spirits” in 2008, The New York Times predicted” this may be the year’s most unlikely major label story.” Now, ten years later with six full length albums and four EPs under their belt, the group will hit the road to celebrate and invite fans to join them on the “One Shot Tour.”
Additionally, Straight No Chaser is currently working on new music, with more details to come over the next few months. In the meantime, the world famous a cappella group will hit the road this summer to bring “An Evening with Straight No Chaser” to select cities with dates throughout July. The summer run follows the group’s recently wrapped “The Speakeasy Tour” in support of last summer’s “Six Pack: Volume 3” EP that saw Straight No Chaser crack open a number of contemporary pop hits and rock classics, highlighted by “Sweet Dreams/HandClap” – their one-of-a-kind mash-up of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)” and Fitz and the Tantrums’ “HandClap” – as well their show-stopping “Beyoncé Medley.”
