Performer Info

Cee Lo Green: Despite his short stature and tough appearance, the voice of Cee Lo Green has one of the most unique, non-traditionally melodic voices in music today. Cee Lo rose to fame with as a member of the hip-hop groups the Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley. In recent years, his solo career has reached new heights with the popularity of his hit single "Forget You" and sold-out tour dates. He also adds a unique touch to the many collaborations and appearances he makes with other popular artists, including Ludacris and Pharrell. Fans of Cee Lo Green can find him on 2011 tour dates in support of Rihanna on the Loud Tour this summer.

Thomas DeCarlo Callaway was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 30, 1974. His father died when he was only two, and his mother died just over ten years later. In 1991, at the age of seventeen, Cee Lo became the youngest member of the Goodie Mob, a pop rap group that, along with Outkast, was a part of the Dungeon Family in Atlanta. He struggled with depression as Goodie Mob first appeared on the Outkast album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. His sadness over the loss of his parents would appear in songs on Goodie Mob's critically acclaimed debut album, Soul Food, in 1995. Soul Food and the 1998 album Still Standing dealt with pressing social and political issues and both albums went gold. Cee Lo Green began his solo career on Arista Records with the release of Cee-Lo Green and His Perfect Imperfections in 2002. This record and his second album, Cee-Lo Green… Is the Soul Machine, explored and expanded on southern rap, even fusing it with other styles of hip-hop, R&B, and jazz.

The artist had worked with DJ Danger Mouse a few times just prior to the release of his second album. Their collaborations became more serious and frequent, leading to the formation of Gnarls Barkley in 2005. The duo became a hit the instant "Crazy" was released as a single in early 2006. The single became a huge success in the US and the UK, and the album St. Elsewhere went platinum just a few months later. After exhausting tour dates in support of Gnarls Barkley's second album, Cee Lo returned his attention to his solo career, which took off like a rocket with the release of the single "Fuck You!" in August 2010. The parent album, The Lady Killer, was also a huge hit, with critics praising the album's soul sound combined with Cee Lo's outstanding vocals.

Cee Lo is busy working on a number of projects that will hopefully surface soon. Cee Lo's next effort is to support Rihanna on concert dates for her 2011 tour. Before the tour kicks off, Cee Lo is playing a May 21 concert date at the Hang Out Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama. 2011 tour dates for Rihanna's Loud Tour begin on June 4 in Baltimore and end on July 24 in Boston. During that that tour, Cee Lo will play concert dates at the Glastonbury Festival on June 24 and Saturday in the Park in Sioux City, Iowa on July 2. Cee Lo will finish off his tour dates in 2011 with three shows in Australia, beginning on July 30. For tickets and tour date info, be sure to check Eventful.
