Robin Thicke Takes His Raunchy Blurred Lines Show on the Road in 2014
A man who certainly needs no introduction, Robin Thicke, announced a new tour last Friday in support of latest album, Blurred Lines.
The concerts are scheduled to kick off on February 21st of next year in Atlanta and will see the crooner perform shows in Washington D.C., Atlantic City, Boston, New York, Austin, Denver, among others, before wrapping everything up at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on March 29th.
Support will come from special guests Jessie J and DJ Cassidy. The latter spent the summer touring with Jay Z and Justin Timberlake on the Legends of the Summer Tour, and played house DJ for the MTV Video Music Awards, so will be no stranger to big rowdy crowds.
Word on the street (the cyber street, that is) is that Thicke has teamed up with Tickets-For-Charity for the upcoming tour dates, donating “some of the best seats in the house to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the National Resources Defense Council.
I probably don’t need to tell you how successful Thicke’s been in recent months, but here are some raw facts fit for consumption:
- “Blurred Lines” peaked at number 1 in 14 countries
- “Blurred Lines” has probably made Pharrell the savviest businessman of 2013
- “Blurred Lines” has inspired countless online parodies, which is truly the modern mark of success
- Like everyone else with a platinum disk, Robin Thicke has been involved in promoting Dre’s Beats empire
- According to the “Blurred Lines” music video, Robin Thicke “has a big d–ck”
Anyway, I suspect Thicke will be pleased to be promoting music-related news, after having a media storm of controversy to deal with surrounding lead single “Blurred Lines” controversial video, which as everybody on the planet knows features naked models and suited men dancing etc. Thicke claims it’s tongue-in-cheek, but who knows. That’s not even to mention his part in the raunchy display of debauchery at the MTV Video Music Award courtesy of Miley Cyrus. Let it never be said that Thicke doesn’t know how to exploit controversy for his own gain.
