More Info

Jesse McCartney: Pop singer and actor Jesse McCartney was a child performer dynamo, singing on Broadway and landing an acting gig on All My Children before even joining his first boy band, a feat that came at the age of 12. Teen poppers Dream Street scored a platinum album with their self-titled debut before spinning off the careers of Chris Trousdale and McCartney himself, who started contributing music to children's films like Cinderella Story ("The Best Day of My Life"), Stuck in the Suburbs ("Good Life"), and Ella Enchanted, for which he performed a version of Elton John's "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" with star Anne Hathaway. McCartney returned to acting in 2004 with a role on the WB teen drama Summerland. He also finished up work on his first solo full-length. "Beautiful Soul" was the album's title track and lead single, and its smooth blend of pop/rock sensibilities punched up with R&B inflections and danceable beats proved to be a template for the record itself. Beautiful Soul was issued in September 2004 and eventually peaked at number 15 on the Billboard 200. McCartney returned in 2005 with a live album documenting his Soul tour. Right Where You Want Me, McCartney's proper sophomore effort, arrived in fall 2006.

O.A.R.: While American rock band O.A.R. may have a few hit singles that they're well known for, the Maryland band has built a reputation on innovation and gumption. O.A.R. (aka Of a Revolution) rose to fame through the distribution of their music and concert dates on college campuses. Each of O.A.R.'s tour dates is unique, as they slightly tweak each song to make each performance one of a kind. Not to mention that the band is bringing back the freestyle jam back to concert schedules, which is rarely seen in mainstream music these days. Regardless of inventive tour dates, O.A.R has created the hit singles "This Town" and "Shattered (Turn the Car Around)" which have received major airplay.

O.A.R was formed by friends Marc Roberge and Chris Culos in 1996. They asked schoolmates Richard On and Benj Gershman to join and O.A.R. released their debut album, The Wanderer, the next year. The quartet attended Ohio State University after high school, but still found time to write and release Souls Aflame in 2000. The songs from their second album slowly gained popularity while O.A.R. performed on campus and maintained a local concert schedule. O.A.R.'s third album, Risen, broke into the Billboard charts and paved the way for further success upon the release of Stories of a Stranger in 2005.

By this time, the reputation of O.A.R.'s concert schedule performances had increased to the point that they performed a sold-out tour date at Madison Square Garden in 2006. The members of O.A.R. later admitted that the success of their studio albums was due in part to the popularity of tour dates and live albums. The band's 2008 album, All Sides, featured the track "Shattered (Turn the Car Around)," which has become O.A.R.'s most popular and highest charting single.

Fans were ecstatic over the release of King in 2011, as well as the subsequent tour dates. The album featured a number of hit singles that propelled it up to #12 on the Billboard charts, making it their most successful album yet. Make sure to keep checking Eventful for any updates on another upcoming tour.

  • The Carrier Dome is a large arena, but a 3-year-old boy wearing a tiny basketball jersey brought the house down Monday night. >> Read more trending news  Drake Grillo, of Auburn, New York, became the youngest person to sing the national anthem at the dome, strolling out to midcourt to belt out his rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the Syracuse University women’s basketball team defeated Niagara, the Syracuse Post-Standard reported. 'I just think he's too little to realize how big of a deal it is,'' Drake’s mother, Chelsea Grillo, told the newspaper. 'We just try to stay calm for him and not really talk it up. We don't ask him if he's nervous. So then maybe he won't think of that. I don't think he really knows what nervous is yet.'' There was no sign of nerves for the boy, who wore a No. 44 Syracuse basketball jersey as he sang. When he was done, several of the Syracuse basketball players came over to give him a fist-bump, the Post-Standard reported. This was not Drake’s first performance before a live audience. He sang the national anthem before the first pitch of the three games of the Auburn Doubledays minor-league baseball team, the Post-Standard reported.  Grillo said her son keeps sharp by singing into a toy microphone at home. While the anthem is his signature song, Drake has expanded his repertoire. 'Right now he’s into Christmas music, so he sings that,'' Grillo told the Post-Standard.
