AEG Appoints New General Manager

Multi-platinum selling recording artist Rachel Platten - whose #1 smash hit "Fight Song" has become the inspirational anthem of 2015 – has announced plans for a North American headline tour with special guest Eric Hutchinson. The eagerly anticipated dates get underway February 26 at Dallas, TX’s Granada Theatre and continues through early April (see below for full itinerary). For complete details and updated ticket information, please visit: rachelplatten.com. Growing up in Boston, Rachel Platten recalls harmonizing with her family to finely crafted pop songs - from Sam Cooke to The Beatles - that dominated her parents’ vinyl collection. As a teenager, Rachel gravitated towards, and began to become affected by, hip-hop and female singer-songwriters. “My CD collection was Tori Amos and Patti Griffin but then A Tribe Called Quest and Nas.” The commonality between the two seemingly different genres: confessional and vulnerable songwriting. Rachel would find her first big spark with “Fight Song,” which took two years for the singer/songwriter to complete. “Fight Song” is without a doubt the life-changing inspirational song of 2015, topping iTunes and radio charts, and selling more than 2 million downloads in the U.S. alone. Rachel just recently premiered the beautifully uplifting music video for her newest single “Stand By You,” another emotionally empowering anthem from the songstress. But ask Rachel what she wants people to take away from her music and she says, “I’m in love with the idea of connecting people. Bringing people together is to me, the most important thing we can do in this life. I feel like that’s my mission with my music. I think that’s why I’m getting this chance right now.” Tickets for The Wildfire Tour go onsale to the public beginning Thursday, December 3rd at 10am (local time).
