Josh Groban is coming directly to Columbus this summer.
The classical-pop vocalist will bring his “Straight To You Tour” to the Schottenstein Center on Aug. 5.
Groban, the U.S.’s best selling artist in 2007, has released five albums since his career took off in 2001. His first four solo albums have all been certified at least multi-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Groban’s “Straight To You Tour” is in support of his latest album, “Illuminations.” Groban worked with producer Rick Rubin and released the album last November. The album has been certified platinum by RIAA.
The tour, which includes 61 dates and spans seven months, kicks off in New Orleans on May 12. Groban will make two trips to Ohio during the tour’s length, his first being at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on June 4.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 5 at 10 a.m.
