The POP Explosion Tour 2013 with Midnight Red

Midnight Red (formally known as FLYTE) is an American boy band signed to Interscope Records. The group was the opening act on the NKOTBSB Tour in 2011, and are currently recording material for their debut album expected to be released in 2013. Musical careeredit: 2009: FLYTE and the formation of Midnight Rededit: Midnight Red was originally formed by these handsome men Eric, Anthony, and Thomas. Eric and Thomas auditioned for the 2007 rebirth of popular boy band, Menudo. The group recruited Joey Diggs Jr. from a referral by a fellow producer. Colton was found on YouTube. In 2009, after relocating to California, the group formed FLYTE. After much rehearsal and hard work, the group caught the eye of one of music producer RedOne, who had worked with Akon, Lady Gaga, Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, among other artists. Once signed to Interscope Records, the group renamed itself Midnight Red. The idea for the name came in Joey's dream actually. In the video for "Body Talk", Thomas says that midnight is that time that everyone wants to sneak out and party, and red is a very dominant, "in your face" color and it represents what they want to do with their music. 2011: Music EP, NKOTBSB Tour, and first albumedit: In the Spring of 2011, Interscope released Midnight Red's self-titled EP on iTunes. The EP featured their first song One Club At A Time, which was used for FOX's So You Think You Can Dance for National Dance Day, as well as a cover of Step by Step by New Kids On The Block. The group received rave reviews as the opening act on the NKOTBSB Tour in the summer of 2011. After the tour the group flew to Paris in December 2011 to continue recording material for their debut album. In a 2013 interview with Musichel, Eric Secharia said that the band was in talks with Tupac's Hologram for their second single. 2012: "Hell Yeah" and the Midnight Red Movementedit: The group performed for many events including Larry King's "Guard A Heart" Pre Grammy Performance, opening for Carly Rae Jepsen at Universal City Walk, and Young Hollywood-Uneeqability.
