Jason Derulo Prepares For His Biggest UK Tour

Jason Derulo is about to embark on his biggest UK tour when he returns to the country in February 2012.

The singer has revealed that he will be playing at eight arenas across the UK to support his latest second studio album, Future History. The eight-date tour will include his largest London show to date as he is scheduled to play at the Wembly Arena on March 1st. The tour will start in Glasgow on February 23 and will conclude in Newcastle on March 3.

Jason Derulo is now established as one of the world’s biggest pop stars having sold 17 million singles globally (1.8 million of which were in the UK) and a million copies of his debut album. His YouTube channel is placed within the Top 100 All-Time Most Viewed Channels with over 400 million streams, and he had over 100,000 plays on UK radio in 2010, making him the 9th most played artist of the year. In addition, he has over 6 million fans on Facebook. However, not all is good news as his album as Future History had first-week sales of 13,000 copies. That’s sad for an artist who had two top 20 hits from an album.

I'm a Jason Derulo fan so I'm kind of disappointed. Maybe Jason should concentrate on bringing something new to the table like he can and build up a fanbase. He should reach out to the urban fans and add more R&B to his music. Maybe then Ancient History would have done better…
