This summer, Colbie Caillat and Gavin DeGraw appear together at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre to thrill music lovers.

Multi-platinum, two-time Grammy winning singer/songwriter Colbie Caillat and Platinum recording artist Gavin DeGraw have announced that they will embark on a co-headlining 2012 North American Summer tour. Singer-songwriter Andy Grammar will open the tour.  Pre-sale tickets will be available for fan club members beginning Tuesday, March 27th while the general on-sale will begin Friday, March 30th and Saturday March 31st.

On Sunday, May 27th, at 8pm, Colbie Caillat and Gavin DeGraw will appear at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, March 30th at 10am the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and Ponte Vedra Concert Hall box offices. Enjoy complimentary coffee and snacks at the Amphitheatre on Friday morning while waiting in line for tickets. Tickets also will be available at findmytix.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, at ticketmaster.com, or by phone at 800-745-3000. 

DeGraw will perform songs from his third studio album, SWEETER, including his platinum selling hit single “Not Over You,” and his just-released new single “Sweeter,” both co-written with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder.  Gavin is scheduled to perform “Sweeter” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 28th.

Caillat’s set will include new songs plus material from all three of her albums:  COCO; BREAKTHROUGH; and her most recent, ALL OF YOU, which features the hit tracks “I Do,” “Brighter Than the Sun,” and “Favorite Song,” a duet with Common.  Caillat and Common will perform the track for the first time ever on Ellen on April 6th.

Caillat’s first single “Bubbly,” (from her debut album COCO) caught a generation’s imagination and has become one of the best-selling digital tracks of all time.  Billboard named Caillat its Breakthrough Artist of the Year.  Her follow-up, BREAKTHROUGH broke at No. 1.  Later that year, Caillat was honored with four Grammy nominations and won two for her collaborations with Jason Mraz and Taylor Swift.    “Brighter Than the Sun,” the second hit from All OF YOU, has been featured in more than 21 films, TV shows and commercials, making it the most licensed new song this decade. She supports the Surfrider Foundation, Save the Music, Farm Sanctuary, and the Humane Society of the U.S., for which she is a spokesperson.

DeGraw is no stranger to the top of the charts, he first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, Chariot, which sold over a million copies, earned platinum certification, and yielded three hit singles: “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and the title-track, “Chariot.” Gavin’s self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles “In Love With A Girl,” which Billboard dubbed “a rocking homerun,” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.” In 2009, Gavin released Free as a gift to his die-hard fans clamoring for recorded versions of Gavin’s live favorites.  For more information visit www.gavindegraw.com.
