(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) welcomes two of the world’s biggest YouTube stars when Dan & Philarrive direct from the UK with their outrageous, brand-new world tour, Interactive Introverts on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets range from $33 to $99.
The unpredictable comedic duo of Dan & Phil (aka Dan Howell and Phil Lester) has ridden the social media wave to international success. They were the first YouTubers to have their own show on BBC Radio 1, they reached over 7 million viewers with their online coverage of the BRIT Awards, and they partnered with renowned app makers Mind Candy to create the 7 Second Challenge app, which reached No. 2 on the iTunes app chart.
In 2015, Dan & Phil’s debut book, The Amazing Book is Not on Fire, rose to the No. 1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list, and was accompanied by a worldwide tour that played to over 200,000 fans. The U.S. wing of that tour closed with a sold-out show at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre, which was filmed by Google as the first UK YouTube Original to sit on the new platform, YouTube Red.
Now Dan & Phil are back on the road and taking the world by storm with Interactive Introverts, a brand-new, live theatrical stage show loaded that’s with hilarious anecdotes, off-the-wall sketches, loads of audience interaction, and a whole lot more – including some IRL surprises you'll never see coming.
NJPACis located at One Center Street in Newark, New Jersey.
