MKTO's 'Classic' Hits Certified Platinium, Tour Dates Revealed

MKTOMKTO’s smash hit “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' yesterday morning and a special live debut performance of their forthcoming new single, “American Dream,” on ABC’s Good Morning America on July 3rd.

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). 

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 EvanKiddBogart (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.
