Rob Thomas Hitting The Road

(PR) Rob Thomas has announced dates for his full-scale tour of North America in support of his new release "cradlesong" and companion DVD "Live at Red Rocks."

The two-month itinerary is slated to kick off on September 23rd at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida and end with a multi-night stand at the famed Beacon Theater in New York beginning on November 12th. The tour will include special guests One Republic and Carolina Liar.

The new tour, dubbed "cradlesong tour '09," is Thomas's second full-fledged solo tour and the first in support of his new Emblem/Atlantic Records release "cradlesong" which hits stores and digital retailers nationwide on June 30th. "cradlesong" is the follow-up to Thomas's record-setting solo album "…Something to Be" which debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart and marked the first time a male artist from a rock or pop group debuted at #1 with his first solo album.

The first single off "cradlesong," "Her Diamonds," already gave the multi-platinum singer songwriter his best Hot 100 start in his 16th overall trip to the Billboard chart and continues to grow at radio. The entire album is currently streaming free of charge through Rhapsody (www.rhapsody.com/vh1) and VH1's "The Leak" (http://theleak.vh1.com) as part of a unique and multi-faceted, multi-platform initiative whose centerpiece is a robust television advertising campaign featuring Thomas and visual clues that fans will recognize as references to his decade-long career, set to the music of "Her Diamonds."
