Post Race Concert at the Finish Line Festival
The party doesn’t stop after crossing the finish line! Pop singer Andy Grammer will headline the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Finish Line Concert on Sunday, January 20, 2013.
In 2012, ANDY GRAMMER emerged as one of the biggest success stories in the music business. He performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (twice), and Good Morning America. He shared the stage with Taylor Swift, Train, and Colbie Caillat, and he is the first male pop star, since John Mayer in 2002, to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first 2 singles, “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me”. “Keep Your Head Up” is certified Gold (quickly approaching Platinum) and received the BMI award as one of 2012’s Top 50 most performed songs across all formats. “Fine By Me” is also certified Gold. Known for his vibrant pop/rock/soul mix and free-flowing vocal delivery, the acclaimed singer, songwriter, and musician – who began as a street performer in Santa Monica, CA – is now poised to make 2013 another big year. Radio has enthusiastically embraced his third single “Miss Me,” (rapidly approaching Top 10), he just finished a national tour with Train, and he is gearing up for a major headline tour in 2013.
