Midnight Red: MTV “Artist To Watch Tour” Rescheduled + Holiday 2013 Tour Announced (@ItsMidnightRed)

MNR_NOH8_RGB_lrg2101 Records/Capitol Records recording artists Midnight Red are a fresh new force on today’s pop landscape.  Joey, Thomas, Anthony, Eric and Colton were proud to perform for America in New York last week when Z100 DJ Elvis Duran selected them as his October Artist of the Month on The Today Show.  The show drew Redheads from across America armed with red wigs, and homemade signs, hoping to catch a glimpse of the boy band.  Their fans, dubbed the redheads, got much more than they bargained for, when after the taping the band performed a free show and had a pizza party for fans, some who had camped out since the night before.

Set for the MTV Artist to Watch tour with Austin Mahone, which has been postponed, the boys of Midnight Red are always ready to connect with fans.  “When we found out about the tour being postponed, we all just looked at each other and were like, well, let’s see what the fans are saying,” said Thomas Augusto.  “Then we went to twitter and found so many fans inviting us to their homes.  So we all thought ‘why not?’.  And that is exactly what they did in the Atlanta area,” adds Colton Rudloff.

Midnight Red pulled their tour bus into the subdivision, rounded a few corners and ended up at the doorstep of Fayetteville, Georgia resident Samantha Weir.  With a little surprise help from Samantha’s mother, Midnight Red was soon performing for a group of friends before sitting around the campfire to make smores.   “This is exactly what we love doing,” says Eric Secharia.  “We put so many smiles on those fans faces.  It felt so great to surprise Samantha and her friends.” CNN and Showbiz Tonight picked up the surprise segment; you can catch the whole thinghere.

Continuing the promotional support of Midnight Red’s current single ‘Take Me Home’, the five boys have earnedaccolades with outlets including BillboardAccess HollywoodGlamoholic and FUSE TV. Their killer dance moves and all American charm earned them E! News’  ‘Hotties of the Week’ spot.  Additionally, the band lent their talent to the in-famous NOH8 campaign to promote marriage, gender and human equality, regardless of the cultural group one many associate with.

Additionally, the band will make stops at this year’s Holiday radio shows. Complete list is below and visitwww.midnightred.com for updates.
