SCOTT BRADLEE’S POSTMODERN JUKEBOX RETURNS TO RIGA IN MARCH 2017 BRINGING THEIR VINTAGE TWIST TO MODERN POP SONGS


Scott Bradlees Postmodern Jukebox has announced a 2017 European tour set to kick off end of February in UK. Performance of SCOTT BRADLEES POSTMODERN JUKEBOX in Riga will take place at Palladium concert hall on March 4, 2017.

The tour announcement comes on the heels of the recently sold-out 75-city European run, the upcoming 16-city tour of Australia and New Zealand, and a 45-city North American headlining tour. “Postmodern Jukebox is literally a postmodern success, extending its reach from the virtual to the real world, touring and performing around the globe for an ever-growing fan base.

 Postmodern Jukebox, the ever-growing collective of performers – now with a roster of over 70 rotating cast members - has spent the past few years amassing nearly 500 million YouTube views and 2 million subscribers, performed on “Good Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard charts, and played hundreds of shows to packed-houses around the world. As NPR put it, they’ve done this by “taking current Top 40 hits and re-imagining them as coming from older eras of popular music.” In one such remake, Postmodern Jukebox turned Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” into a doo-wop ditty that’s garnered over 15.8 million views. Last year, Bradlee arranged Radiohead’s alt-rock hit “Creep” as a torch-like ballad that’s racked up over 19.5 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine. Multi-Grammy winning artist Lorde praised Postmodern Jukebox’s vintage take on her hit single, “Royals,” which has been viewed over 15.9 million times, as her “favorite.” PMJ recently performed a ‘30s jazz remake of Elle King’s “Ex’s & Oh’s” for MTV – click HERE to watch.

 The group's accomplishments have earned them praise from a plethora of media outlets, including Mashable, which wrote, “Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox are all about reimagining music and framing it in beautiful new ways.” Entertainment Weekly wrote, “Scott Bradlee’s group is known for retro-fying modern hit songs into viral success.” Yahoo! Music added, “if you’ve been on YouTube in the last couple of years, then you’re familiar with the everything-new-is-old-again brilliance of the viral phenomenon known as Postmodern Jukebox.”

 Bradlee, the creator and mastermind behind the group, has turned Postmodern Jukebox into a juggernaut by building an incredible grassroots movement around the act. He continues to pick the songs, create the arrangements and shows, and put together the casts for every tour - which includes several notable names alongside some phenomenal "undiscovered" talent. The group releases a new video every week, each one shot in the casual environment of Bradlees living room.

"I posted the first video in 2009,recalls Bradlee. I was broke and living in Queens, NY. Seven years later, weve amassed 2 million subscribers, weve sold out shows across four continents and weve become a showcase for an incredible group of performers. Every single one of our cast members has unique superpowers and I take pride in putting together the best combination of abilities and personalities to create an amazing experience for our fans. We want them to escape reality and join us for the most sensational 1920s party this side of The Great Gatsby. We want them to experience what it was like to be at the New Years' Eve show that Sinatra would have hosted in the 1940s. We want them to feel the excitement of hearing the greats of Motown live and up closeand a Postmodern Jukebox show is the only place you can experience all of this and more in one night.
