Girl Talk tickets

Girl Talk tickets - Girl Talk tour dates

Tour/Concert Schedule

Let the press wring their hands over what Girl Talk's obsessive sampling means for music. Fans know what it all means: a great time. Albums like his newest release, All Day, has made waves with its stunning mash-ups, blending Black Sabbath and Jay-Z, or Sir Mix-A-Lot with Fugazi. But the real experience is getting concert tickets to hear him live, where everyone ends up sweating on the dance floor - including the artist himself.

Gregg Gillis, a.k.a, Girl Talk, knew early on that music would be a big part of his life. He began experimenting with electronic music and sampling attending high school in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After a few years of collaborating with other artists, the talented musician decided to go out on his own. And Girl Talk was born. He continued to work on his music while attending Case Western Reserve University, and landed a job as an engineer after graduation. But, he soon left the job to pursue his music career full-time. And although he has not followed the traditional rise to the top, he has a loyal fan base that spans the globe. Now, he is back on stage with brand new music and his signature on-stage antics. You'll want to be there when Girl Talk unleashes his one-of-a-kind performance experience.

Girl Talk is currently on tour and will be making stops in cities all over the country, including the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California, the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida, the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia and many other cities across the country. Don't miss your chance to see this out-of-the-box musician as he creates musical mayhem once more.


Trivia

Girl Talk is the classic rebel musician. But did you know that he uses unauthorized samples from popular songs to create his one-of-a-kind music? While the media has called his creations a lawsuit waiting to happen, the artist believes in being able to freely use the samples he chooses. And the musician not only takes samples from other artists to create his unique blend of electronic music, but he also allows his fans to take portions of his music to make their own creative creations. He truly is a one-of-a-kind artist, and you won't want to miss your chance to see him in person.


About the Artist

Girl Talk, aka Gregg Gillis, started out as a bio-medical engineer with a love of electronic music. He played with samples throughout his college years, and even when he was in the working world, but the siren's call was too much—and the siren sounded a lot like Lady Gaga and the Beastie Boys. His live tours are renowned for turning laptop shows into an experience. Don't come unless you plan to move and dance.

Growing up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Greg Gillis knew he had a talent and a passion for music. But he never imagined that his affinity for electronic music would end up as his main career. He began creating music as a high school student and continued to evolve as a musician throughout college. After graduation he landed a job in the medical field as a bio-medical engineer. But he soon left his job to focus on his music career full-time. He began creating mashup-style mixes that used dozens of samples from popular songs by Lady Gaga, Beastie Boys, Black Sabbath and many more artists. The New York Times Magazine famously called Girl Talk's music a "lawsuit waiting to happen." But the headstrong musician didn't let that get in the way of creating the music he was meant to create. He continued to create music using these controversial samples and offered up his samples to other artists and fans to create their own creative projects including films and music videos.

While many believe Girl Talk's name comes from a Jim Morrison poem or an early side project, the musician has said that the name is a reference to pop culture in general and other mainstream products and magazines. Gillis has also said that he chose the name because he didn't want to take himself too seriously. Girl Talk sounded like the exact opposite of a guy playing music on a laptop, so that's what he chose. It wasn't long after entering the music business and choosing his stage name that he began to see success. He released three albums in six years, and by 2006, his songs were making it to Top Album lists in Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and Spin magazines. And in 2007, the artist received the Rave Award from Wired magazine.

Girl Talk continued to have success throughout the next few years, gaining fans wherever he performed. He became known not only for his raging music and sweat-inducing dance beats, but he also became known for his generosity. He allowed fans to choose what price they wanted to pay for his music instead of charging a set amount. He may be unconventional, but music fans can't seem to get enough of him.

Not only was his music soaring to new heights with fans, but by the time he released his third album, critics were taking notice as well. Girl Talk is an award-winning artist who knows how to give his fans a great night of entertainment. Don't miss your chance to catch this over-the-top musician in person!
