The idea of a city touring the world is an interesting thing to ponder. For one thing, it would revitalize the airline industry with that many people flying that often. And think about the boon it would be on the various economies it touches. Sadly, Owl City's "All Things Bright and Beautiful" world tour didn't quite have that effect. Maybe that's because Owl City has a population of 1. So even though Owl City went around the world, its impact on the world economy was minimal. On the plus side, it did give fans the world over a chance to see the platinum artist live. It was a trade off.
In case you missed it, the concert experience was captured on film at LA's Club Nokia and if you'd like to take part, we're giving a copy to three lucky readers. To find out how you can snag one, keep reading.
Owl City exploded onto the scene with the success of his major label debut Ocean Eyes. Released by Universal Republic Records in July 2009, the album topped the Billboard Rock, Alternative, and Dance/Electronic charts and was certified platinum in the U.S. It also spawned the quadruple platinum hit “Fireflies,” which hit #1 in 24 countries including twice in the U.S. Owl City then went on his first ever tour as the headliner and sold out shows across 4 continents, scarcely taking a break until it was time to record a new album. In the winter of 2010 the electro-pop aficionado went back into the basement where it all began and recorded his sophomore release All Things Bright and Beautiful, which was released on June 14th, 2011. That same week, Owl City kicked off another worldwide headlining tour bringing with him some new songs as well as his exciting live show. The 76 date trek took the band across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia and the Owl City – Live from Los Angeles DVD release comes as the All Things Bright
and Beautiful World Tour draws to a close.
