The Weekend Riot, IM5 Launching The Grow Wild Tour

(CW) The Weekend Riot will be embarking on The Grow Wild Tour featuring IM5, Austin Jones, Bailey McConnell (of Britain's Got Talent fame), The House On Cliff, and hosted by Sam Pottorff of our2ndlife.

The Grow Wild Tour will be starting on April 18th at Epicentre in San Diego, CA and concluding on May 29th at Ace of Spades in Sacramento, CA.

Like their name suggests, IM5 is an new musical act comprised of three very different boys sharing a love of entertaining. Brought together by showbiz vets Simon Fuller, Jamie King and Perez Hilton, IM5 has been a band for over a year now, undergoing intensive vocal and dance training.

Sam Pottorff was a member of our2ndlife, a popular YouTube act which accumulated nearly 3 million subscribers and over 420 million views. Austin Jones is a pop musician from Chicago, IL who has toured with SayWeCanFly, 7 Minutes In Heaven, and others. Bailey McConnell is a 16 year old singer-songwriter from Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire. McConnell first received recognition when he was a semi-finalist on season 8 of Britain's Got Talent.

In February 2015, Bailey travelled UK and Ireland to complete his own 9 date Headline Tour (Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff and London).

The infectious energy of Bruce Wiegner and singer/ukulele player Johnny Costa, known as The Weekend Riot, has helped the band gain a devoted following. Since May 2014, the band has shared the stage with artists such as MKTO, Emblem3, Christina Grimmie, Hollywood Ending, Tiffany Houghton, AJR, and done several tours with the likes of SayWeCanFly and Deleasa.

The House On Cliff is a high-energy rock band from Boston Massachusetts with a passion to bring rock and roll back to the masses. The band met while studying at Berklee College of Music and the rest was history. Since forming in September 2013 they have been on three national tours, the most recent being The ABC's Of Style Mall Tour (Sponsored by Simon Malls and Teen Vogue).
