Breckenridge, CO. – Dec. 9, 2009 – OneRepublic will headline the Winter Dew Tour’s Music Series presented by Verizon Wireless on Friday and Saturday, December 18-19. Both concerts will be held in Breckenridge’s Riverwalk Center as a part of the Winter Dew Tour’s first stop of the 2009-10 season, the Totino’s Open, taking place at Breckenridge Ski Resort.
Originally a MySpace sensation as the number one unsigned act on the site, OneRepublic’s music caught the attention of Timbaland in 2006, and he signed the group to Mosley Music Group as the first rock band ever on the label. OneRepublic’s mainstream breakthrough came when Timbaland remixed the band’s “Apologize,” releasing it as a single on his 2007 Shock Value. The single featuring “Apologize” went three times platinum in the US, selling more than 5 million copies worldwide. OneRepublic’s own debut album Dreaming Out Loud also included the remixed version of “Apologize” along with their second hit, “Stop and Stare.” After the combination of successes, Rolling Stone included OneRepublic on its 2007 “Top Ten Artists to Watch” list.
The band’s second album, Waking Up, was released on November 17, with the first single, “All the Right Moves.”
Hailing from Colorado Springs, Colo., OneRepublic will perform Friday and Saturday night, December 18-19 at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge.
