Started by Scott Bradlee in 2009, Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ) has gone on to amass more than one billion YouTube views with 3.5 million subscribers, and have chalked up more than 1.7 million fans on Facebook. For the past half decade, PMJ has toured the world, playing hundreds of shows to sold-out houses on six continents. They’ve also performed on shows like “Good Morning America” and topped iTunes and Billboard charts. The group caught the attention of NPR Music, NBC News and a wide array of celebrity fans.
The tour is meant to prepare the world for a new decade. Postmodern Jukebox creator Bradlee hopes pop culture will see a return to the style and craftsmanship that typified the music of past generations.
“Last time around the Twenties gave us jazz, America’s one true art form. Who knows what is possible in the 2020s,” said Bradlee. “One thing that is for sure is that there are a lot of folks that are tired of the clickbait headlines, mindless reality TV and smartphone addiction that has only served to divide people in the last decade. We’re using our small corner of the pop culture space to tell people to forget their troubles, and come join us for a night of celebrating true musical talent and timeless style – live and in real life.”
The Postmodern Jukebox Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour will host official Twenties 2.0 initiation performance parties in nearly 250 cities.
“When creating a touring version of the Postmodern Jukebox concept, we work on pairing the right talent with the right material and building a unique and amazing experience for Postmodern Jukebox fans,” said Bradlee. “Get ready for the most sensational ’20s party this side of The Great Gatsby.”
