The Recording Academy has linked up with T-Mobile to announce the first-ever official concert tour featuring both Grammy nominees and winners. Set to kick off on April 3 in Chicago, the tour will wind its way across the nation with scheduled stops in Dallas, Los Angeles, New York and Miami also planned. Grammy winning soul man John Legend is slotted for the Chicago show, with further confirmed performers to be revealed this month via www.sidekick.com and www.grammy.com.
A limited number of tickets for the performances will be available only through special, in-store contest giveaways at select T-Mobile retail locations in the five concert cities. To further sweeten the deal, fans will also have the chance to enter to win a VIP concert package online at the official Sidekick homepage.
Speaking about this new endeavor Evan Greene, Chief Marketing Officer of The Recording Academy, said, "Through this new partnership, The Recording Academy continues its 50th Anniversary activities, and provides music fans the opportunity to be part of the celebration.”
