Diagnosis: The band is closing out 2014 with a bang. Fitz and The Tantrums will perform on “Good Morning America” on Friday, November 21.
Their fall headline tour is underway with special guest Big Data opening on the November dates, which include a nearly sold-out show at New York City’s Terminal 5 (November 12), two nights at Boston’s House of Blues (November 15 & 16) and a sold-out show at First Avenue in Minneapolis (November 21). The November 22 concert at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre is sold-out as well. In December, Fitz and The Tantrums will rock holiday concerts from coast to coast and end an extraordinary year with a special performance at the downtown Long Beach, CA New Year’s Eve celebration. See below for itinerary.
“Fitz and The Tantrums: Live at The Aragon Ballroom,” a new Palladia special, captures the band in concert at this legendary Chicago venue, whipping a 5,000-person crowd into a sweaty, fun-filled dance explosion and proving that Vogue was right to name them the hardest working band in showbiz. “Live at The Aragon Ballroom” will air on Palladia on November 4 @ 2:00 PM, November 8 @ 11:00 PM, November 13 @ 9:00 PM and November 21 @ 5:00 PM.
The Washington Post called Fitz and The Tantrums’ live show “captivatingly crazy” and Rolling Stone said, “This six-piece Los Angeles pop-soul group is all about irrepressible energy: hopped-up rhythms, shout-it-out choruses, hooted background vocals.” The New York Times noted, “Their debut effort, ‘Pickin’ Up the Pieces’ (Dangerbird), and follow-up, ‘More Than Just a Dream’ (Elektra/Atlantic), burst with danceable hooks.”
Fitz and The Tantrums are: Fitz (vocals), Noelle Scaggs (vocals/tambourine), James King (saxophone), Jeremy Ruzumna (keyboards), John Wicks (drums) and Joseph Karnes (bass).
