2018 proved to be another watershed year for the singer as he extends his influence across music, television, and Broadway yet again. Early in the year, he co-hosted the 72nd Annual Tony® Awards alongside Sara Bareilles at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The broadcast this year drew 6.3 million viewers on CBS, an increase of 4 percent from the 6 million who watched last year. Groban released his critically acclaimed 8th studio album, Bridges, on September 21st and co-starred on the new NETFLIX original series, The Good Cop, alongside Tony Danza, which began streaming on the same day Bridges was released.

 

Groban recently wrapped the first leg of his successful Fall 2018 BRIDGES arena tour supported by Tony-Award winning, multi-platinum recording artist and actress Idina Menzel. The run garnered rave reviews across the board:

 

“Seventeen years into his career, Groban’s buttery voice and winning presence continue to impress.” - Atlanta Journal Constitution

 

“Groban may be a baritone, but he’s got some high notes up his sleeve — many in the audience gave him a standing ovation. Those not standing were busy brushing away tears.” - Deseret News

 

“Groban's incredible vocal range was front and center throughout the performance" - City Pages

 

“Given his powerful vocals, even Groban’s ballads felt bigger than life.” - St. Paul Pioneer Press

 

Groban’s critically acclaimed sold out performance from New York’s famed Madison Square Garden that marked the end of his Fall BRIDGES arena tour, will be coming to cinemas nationwide tomorrow, February 12th in collaboration with global event cinema distributor, Trafalgar Releasing and Warner Bros. Records. Recorded before a live audience, the show includes a mixture of new songs and classic hits as well as duets with both Menzel and Nettles.

 

This week, Groban is set for a string of national TV appearances to include a performance on the TODAY Show, The Talk and a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
