The Lonely Island’s first major tour comes off the momentum of the group’s first ever live concert at last year’s Clusterfest in San Francisco. The headline performance was packed with special guests including Michael Bolton, T-Pain and Chris Parnell and was met with rave reviews:
“The Lonely Island packed gloriously dumb jokes into a live concert that had its audience roaring with laughter,” said SFWEEKLY.com
“You’ve never really lived until you’ve seen the American classic ‘Jizz in My Pants’ live, which means the vast majority of the planet has never really lived,” said COMPLEX.com
And from The San Francisco Chronicle, “Many of the best moments of the night can’t be described easily, either because of the boundary-pushing adult content, or the creative stage work.”
In 2006 The New York Times credited The Lonely Island with helping usher in the digital era at SNL. The trio has since amassed over 6.8 million subscribers on YouTube and over 2.3 billion views on their YouTube channel. They have achieved multiple RIAA certified hits, including 2X Platinum single (“I’m On A Boat”), Platinum singles (“Jizz In My Pants”, “I Just Had Sex”, “Everything is Awesome”) and Gold single (“Like A Boss”). Their singles “I’m On A Boat” and album Turtleneck & Chain were both nominated for Grammys. In 2014, the group co-wrote “Everything is Awesome,” the theme song to the Oscar® nominated film, The Lego Movie. The song was performed by Tegan ad Sara in collaboration with the trio. It was nominated for Best Original Song at the 2015 Oscars®. Most recently, The Lonely Island teamed up with Beck and Robyn for the song “Super Cool” for the number one film The Lego Movie 2.
