JON BELLION KICKS OFF NORTH AMERICAN LEG OF THE GLORY SOUND PREP TOUR
Tonight, Jon Bellion will launch the North American leg of The Glory Sound Preptour at The Met in Philadelphia. The summer headline run, produced by Live Nation, is his largest outing to date. It will include a July 12 concert at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and an August 10 hometown show at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Long Island. See below for itinerary. Tickets are available at www.JonBellion.com. Bellion’s world tour will take him to Europe, the U.K., Ireland, Australia and New Zealand this fall.
Released in November 2018, Glory Sound Prep (Capitol Records/Visionary Music Group), includes collaborations with GRAMMY®-winning producer Quincy Jones, Roc Marciano, RZA, B.Keyz and Travis Mendes. Combined global streams of the single “Stupid Deep” have surpassed 40 million. A documentary about the making of Glory Sound Prep, directed by Dexter Findley, was released last month.
Over the past few weeks, Bellion has released five new recordings – including his new single, “Crop Circles,” available HERE, and acoustic versions of three songs from Glory Sound Prep: “Blu,” “Stupid Deep” and “Conversations With My Wife.” Bellion’s collaboration with ILLENIUM, “Good Things Fall Apart,” was #1 Most Added at Alternative in its first week at radio and has crossed 21 million cumulative streams in just a few weeks’ time.

Newsday said, “‘Crop Circles’ – his first post-‘Glory Sound Prep’ release – bounces between a funky groove on the verses about a relationship on the rocks and a dreamy, synthesized chorus about happier times. ‘Good Things Fall Apart’…[is] built over a stunning backdrop that grows from acoustic guitar simplicity to a massive, catchy chorus.”
Bellion got his start with a series of mixtapes featuring his original songs – all recorded in his parents’ basement. He built a remarkable following by sharing his music directly with listeners, giving away more than 200,000 free downloads of 2014’s The Definition and playing live for fans on two sold-out national tours. His 2016 debut album, The Human Condition, has sold more than 1.5 million adjusted albums and amassed upwards of 1.7 billion cumulative streams. “All Time Low,” the lead single, was a Top 10 hit at Top 40 radio and is now certified 3x Platinum.
Also a sought-after collaborator, Bellion co-wrote and produced “Trumpets” for Jason Derulo and co-wrote the GRAMMY Award winning, 10x-Platinum hit “The Monster” for Eminem and Rihanna. He co-wrote and co-produced Christina Aguilera’s 2018 single, “Fall in Line” featuring Demi Lovato.
