akon

Global superstar AKON and Urban/Pop Princess CIARA join Flo Rida, Jay Sean, Soulja Boy, Travie McCoy, Stan Walker and DJ Nino Brown for Summerbeatz 2010. With over 4 hours of live music, Summerbeatz will be heating up the stage with some of the world’s most popular chart topping musical talent all on one bill!
 
With 8 million record sales under his belt and sold out shows across the world, Akon is one of the biggest recording artists today.  His recent live performances at Supafest left Australian audiences elated at his high energy show.  He has achieved gold and platinum certifications in twenty-three countries with the album KONVICTED and its singles -- the No. 1 hits “Don't Matter,” and Grammy nominee “I Wanna Love You;” along with the No. 2 Grammy-nominated “Smack That” featuring Eminem. His collaboration with David Guetta “Sexy Bitch” was a worldwide smash hit, and his first album was the two-million-selling 2004 release TROUBLE, which included the smashes “Locked Up” and “Lonely.” Akon’s hot new single ANGEL taken from his forthcoming album STADIUM is at radio now.
 
Ciara is a global superstar whose infectious tunes have resulted in multi-platinum albums, smash singles and a truckload of awards.  Her dazzling dance moves have mesmerized audiences worldwide.  Her striking good looks have led to modelling opportunities and her magnetic screen presence has jumpstarted a promising acting career.  The Atlanta-based artist exploded on the scene in 2004 with her ubiquitous single “Goodies.”  Subsequent singles “1, 2 Step,” “Oh” and “And I” pushed her debut album, also titled Goodies, to triple platinum status.  Goodies instantly established Ciara as a musical force with her silky voice, no-nonsense attitude, and fluid dance moves. Ciara’s second album, 2006’s Ciara: The Evolution, was also certified platinum, marked her progression as a songwriter and spawned another round of hit singles: the creative “Like A Boy,” the sensual “Promise” and the ode to hood love “Can’t Leave ‘Em Alone” with 50 Cent.  Her third album, 2009’s imaginative Fantasy Ride, included the infectious and platinum single “Love Sex Magic” with Justin Timberlake. Her brand new album “Basic Instinct” is due for a January 14th, 2011 release.
 
With shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, Summerbeatz promises to deliver an unforgettable pop music experience. 
 
Akon will not be performing in Melbourne. Promoter Dwayne Cross released the following statement “It’s with great regret that we announce that Akon will not be performing in Melbourne on the Summerbeatz 2010 Tour. This is due to restrictions put on us by the Melbourne venue Rod Laver Arena. We have toured Akon in Australia many times before and we are extremely disappointed that Melbourne misses out on seeing such an amazing and popular performer, however, this situation is completely out of our hands. We look forward to Akon performing in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth”
