New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Are you an undiscovered talent just ready for the spotlight? Then you have to join The Showcase Tour, the largest live music showcase in the world. What "AMERICAN IDOL" is to television, The Showcase Tour is to live city-by-city appearances. This grassroots talent platform provides new music artists in all genres to showcase their original talent in multiple cities.
And then there's the prize. Professional music industry judges score every performance and choose the top three performers. All first-place winners, from July 2018 to June 2019, will be invited to perform at the annual finale and compete for the Grand Prize of $50,000 cash and a live performance tour. This year, The Showcase Tour finale event is set for Labor Day weekend in Los Angeles.
The Showcase Tour is the brainchild of Boston
native, Andrew Corapi. "We started The Showcase Tour with the desire to give every artist a platform to showcase their music to a live audience," said Corapi. "It's exciting to continue to expand and grow and offer this opportunity to more aspiring artists each year."
Andrew's first job at the age of 19 was booking talent for a local music showcase. Corapi went on to book major music artists including Post Malone, Soulja
Boy, The Game, and Bow Wow. In 2016, he decided to go back to his roots, expand on his original vision, and The Showcase Tour was born. In 2018, The Showcase Tour hosted 161 shows in four countries.
