The “Sad Clown with the Golden Voice” will be taking his critically-acclaimed Puddles Pity Party on the road to entertain audiences for select dates this summer. Puddles has been astounding audiences at sold-out shows all over the world with his endearing blend of tender moments and mind-blowing vocal performances. He’ll kick off a 14-date summer tour on June 6 in Minneapolis and conclude his live show run on July 21 at Washington D.C.’s premiere venue The Kennedy Center.
Puddles recently made a huge impression with his Sia “Chandelier” cover on NBC’s popular reality competition series “America’s Got Talent.” Series boss Simon Cowell has been very candid about his fear of clowns in prior seasons. However, he was so bowled over by Puddles’ performance that he told the somber clown he may have “turned” him from his fear.
Puddles gained a huge amount of notoriety when his 2013 cover of New Zealand native pop star Lorde’s “Royals” went viral. The video has amassed over 19 million views today. Puddles brings something new and unexpected to the table when his shy, if-not-anxious silent and somber clown persona melts away as he belts huge songs like “Royals,” “Chandelier” and the late, great David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”
Simon Cowell and AGT company certainly didn’t hear him coming and that’s a big part of what makes Puddles so irresistible. His powerful singing voice is just so wildly different from his meek clown demeanor. He often gets emotional following a performance, too. Seriously. What is there NOT to love about Puddles?
