Following the release of his best selling new album, Blurred Lines, recording artist Robin Thicke has announced a stop at the Fox Theatre on March 12 at 7:30 p.m. for his highly anticipated Spring 2014 North American tour. The artist will be joined by special guest DJ Cassidy making this the hottest concert package of the spring.
This past summer marked the debut of Robin Thicke's highly anticipated sixth studio album, Blurred Lines (Star Trak/Interscope Records). The collection debuted at #1 on Billboard Top 200 while, "Blurred Lines," the single, continued its 12-week reign on the Billboard Hot 100 chart making Robin the first artist to take the top spot on both lists since December 2012 and only the 17th act to earn the distinction in the past ten years. "Blurred Lines" broke records by climbing to #1 on 5 radio charts simultaneously (Top 40, Rhythm, Urban, Hot AC & Urban AC) – the first time this has ever been done by an artist. New York Magazine called the album, "A great record. Period," while Rolling Stone said, "Robin Thicke sings, writes, produces, plays keyboard and even raps a little on his excellent sixth album." The second single off of the album, "Give It 2 U" ft. Kendrick Lamar, is available now.
Robin Thicke has established himself as one of the most respected singer-songwriters in soul and R&B music today. The musician, composer, and actor, released his critically acclaimed debut album, A Beautiful World, in 2003 under the name "Thicke." Soon after, he came out with his breakthrough second release, 2006's The Evolution Of Robin Thicke. Now on the way to double platinum status, Evolution's mega hit "Lost Without U" became the #1 most played song in Urban Adult Contemporary BDS and topped four Billboard charts simultaneously. The award-winning multiplatinum superstar returned to center stage in 2008 with Something Else, a joyful and modern tribute to the '70s soul and pop records that have inspired an extraordinary career. Revered by critics as one of the best soul albums in years, this '70s-inspired album dealt with racism, poverty, and love in the hits "Dreamworld," "Magic," and "The Sweetest Love." In December of 2009 Robin released Sex Therapy. The title song was hailed by critics as "the sexiest song of the year." Robin's fifth studio album, Love After War was released in December of 2011.
