MKTO visits Good Day Atlanta

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -  Music sensation MKTO stops by Good Day Atlanta to talk new music and upcoming shows!

(Columbia Records; New York, NY; June 16, 2014) – MKTO’s era-swagging smash “Classic” has been certified platinum in the U.S..  The duo’s first stateside-million selling single (the song has achieved double-platinum in Australia) has propelled them to two hotly anticipated TV appearances, with a performance on ABC’s The View this morning and a special live debut performance of their forthcoming new single, “American Dream,” on ABC’s Good Morning America on July 3rd. Check out their performance on the View here. Their first-ever headlining US tour has become one of the summer’s most sought-after tickets.   The 36 city American Dream tour as part of the Skype “Ones to Watch” series kicks off June 27th in Detroit with MKTO bringing their kinetic blend of pop/hip hop and R&B to major cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas and Philadelphia (see below for a full list of dates). For information on tickets, go to www.wearemkto.com. VIP upgrade packages can be found at www.vipnation.com. The duo will also be hitting the road with Demi Lovato this fall, with Christina Perri also joining the bill (dates below). MKTO’s acclaimed self-titled debut album (released on April 1st) has seen them blaze their fusillade of genre-mixing gems into a global calling card. Their previous hit “Thank You,” was embraced by multiple radio and video platforms, with the spryly-suited clip for “Classic” zooming toward 18 million views, approaching top 10 at pop radio, top 20 at adult pop radio, and now commanding over 50 million in weekly audience.  SiriusXM Hits-1, the spin leader on “Classic”, is now over 2,700 plays of the track. The group has snagged multiple Top Ten singles in Australia and New Zealand, with U.S. audiences catching their first glimpse of MKTO’s energetic live show when the duo opened for Emblem3 this past winter. Tony Oller (22) and Malcolm Kelly (21) comprise MKTO, meeting on the set of Teen Nick's Gigantic in 2010 and immediately bonding over their passion for music.  They would eventually connect with songwriters/producers Eman and Evan “Kidd” Bogart (Beyoncé, Ne-Yo, Rihanna) who inked them a deal to Columbia Records and began executive producing their debut album. MKTO features the uplifting "American Dream," “Could Be Me,” a collaboration with Grammy Award winner Ne-Yo, and the album’s stunning closer, "Goodbye Song" among others.
