Straight No Chaser Celebrates 25th Anniversary Celebration Tour at the Embassy in December TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY, MAY 6
Fort Wayne, Ind. (May 2, 2022) – Chart-topping a cappella group Straight No Chaser will celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2022 with a 62-date fall tour and their third PBS special airing nationwide starting in June.
Straight No Chaser comes to the Embassy Theatre on Wednesday, December 14, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. Member pre-sale will begin on Wednesday, May 4 at 10 a.m., and tickets go on sale to the public for the full tour on Friday, May 6 at 10 a.m. This show is presented by Nitelite Promotions.
Formed during the 1996-1997 school year at Indiana University, Straight No Chaser – which began, according to group member Steve Morgan as a “way to meet girls” – eventually emerged at the forefront of the modern-day a cappella movement, and has since sold more than three million albums worldwide, garnered more than a billion streams and sold more than 1.5 million concert tickets worldwide.
“When we started Straight No Chaser as college kids at Indiana University, we never imagined that 25 years later, we’d have two albums certified gold and tour dates around the world,” said group member Walter Chase. “What a ride it has been. It has literally been a dream come true.”
This fall, the group will kick off their ‘The 25th Anniversary Celebration’ tour on October 20 in Deadwood, South Dakota, and will perform through New Year’s Eve, where the tour wraps up in Portland, OR. In total, this fall the group will perform 62 shows.
In commemoration of ‘The 25th Anniversary Celebration,’ Straight No Chaser will release an exclusive NFT to mark the occasion. All details will be revealed in the coming days on Straight No Chaser’s site and social platforms. Visit www.SNCmusic.com for more information.
Additionally, PBS stations nationwide will air Straight No Chaser: The 25th Anniversary Celebration, starting this June. The concert, filmed at the Murat Theatre at Old National Center in Indianapolis in 2019 where the group has sold out 27 shows, features the nine group members performing classics like “Proud Mary,” “Lean on Me” and “Twistin,’” as well as pop mash-ups like “Uptown Funk/Thriller.”
Earlier this year, Straight No Chaser, known for their soundtrack to the holidays, released a hardcover book of cocktail and food recipes, Straight No Chaser Sound Bites: A Cappella, Cocktails, and Cuisine, sharing their family traditions with their fans.
This fall, Straight No Chaser will release a physical version of last year’s deluxe edition of Social Christmasing, which featured an original, “Christmas Show,” written by group member Mike Luginbill and “Celebrate Me Home,” featuring Kenny Loggins, in addition to the album’s original track list, which included their signature twist on Christmas classics like “Silver Bells” and “Frosty The Snowman,” five new original songs, and a hopeful take on the Counting Crows classic “A Long December.”
