If you want to know what’s hott to Young America, then look no further than the SCREAM TOUR…the newest cell phones, the latest ringtones, the hottest cars and the biggest stars. In every arena–sports, politics, TV, movies, technology, business- you have that one person, place or thing that dominates its class, that stands heads above the rest and sets the standard and the course for everything else to follow. When it comes to the summer concert series, that one thing is the SCREAM TOUR.
Over the past 7 years, the SCREAM TOUR has become synonymous with showcasing the best that the R&B and Rap world has to offer to thousands of screaming youth. Year after year, the SCREAM TOUR series continues to bring bigger stars, bigger productions and bigger crowds together in cities across the country. This summer’s show will be no different. This year’s SCREAM TOUR, aptly titled SCREAMFEST ’07, has confirmed an all-star lineup of talent, including one of the most successful R&B stars of this era; the sexy and electrifying-Ciara. Also starring on the SCREAM stage this summer will be one of the hottest rappers of our time, two time Grammy award winning-T.I. After dominating record sales in 2006, T.I. will be gearing up for the release of his highly anticipated fifth studio album entitled “T.I. vs T.I.P.” which will be released on July 3rd. As for Ciara, after receiving numerous awards including a Grammy, AMA, Billboard and others, her certified platinum second album, “Ciara: The Evolution” was released on December 5, 2006, and debuted at number one selling more than 338,000 copies in its first week.
