ELEVATED WORLD TOUR 2017
Friday, September 15 | The Toyota Yard @ Topgolf Las Vegas
DOORS: 7pm | SHOWTIME: 8PM
Leroy Sanchez’s whirlwind journey from his bedroom in Abechuco, a small village (pop. 3300) in the rural Basque region of Spain, to global YouTube superstardom began as a whimsical lark in 2007. Curious about the video platform and inspired by others posting covers of pop songs, the talented 15 year old grabbed his acoustic guitar, turned on the webcam, and sang his soulful version of Kelly Clarkson’s “Breakaway.” The synergy between Leroy and his growing legion of fans made him an unstoppable, ever-evolving viral sensation that, over the past ten years, has resulted in over 3 million subscribers, 323 million views – including an astounding 42 million views alone for his cover of Adele’s “Hello.”
With the release of his highly anticipated independent EP Elevated, Leroy transcends the bounds of YouTube fame and emerges as a multi-faceted singer-songwriter and hit maker in his own right. Its just-dropped lead single, the infectiously seductive “Man of the Year,” is quickly capturing the hearts of millions of fans excited to hear a fresh side of the multi-talented singer-songwriter’s artistry. People magazine calls it “a soulful, lovesick bop reminiscent of Justin Timberlake and Ed Sheeran.” Pop culture tastemaker Perez Hilton affectionately states, “This is such a good slow jam! And we’re a sucker for a guy who sings in his falsetto!”
Last year, Sanchez was recognized by the Teen Choice Awards with a nomination in the “Next Big Thing” category; this year, he is up for “Choice Music Web Star.” In 2016, Leroy was also nominated in the “Cover to Cover” category by the Premios Juventud Awards, a show for Spanish speaking celebrities honoring various fields of popular culture.
