Owl City soars up the charts to the No.1 Spot!

As tickets for his UK tour sell out fast, Owl City's global phenomenon 'Fireflies' soars up the UK charts to No.1!! Owl City’s single ‘Fireflies’ has already sold nearly 3 million copies in the US, topped the Billboard chart - twice - and the iTunes chart in 6 countries, yet until recently he was still relatively unknown in the UK. However, following its early release due to popular demand here in the UK and with very little promotion, 'Fireflies' topped the UK charts on Sunday. Adam Young, the talented young man behind Owl City is modestly taking his latest chart topping success in his stride. “It hasn't quite sunk in yet and I suspect it never really will. It's surreal to think that a song I wrote in a basement in the middle of blustery Minnesota has made it as far as it has. Needless to say, I'm completely thrilled.” Owl City can’t wait to hit the road in the UK and, judging by ticket sales, we can’t wait for him to arrive. With Manchester recently upsized to the 2400-capacity Academy 1 and London, Birmingham and Newcastle dates sold out, leaving just a handful of tickets for the remaining dates, it looks like the UK has joined the rest of the world in tumbling head over heels for Owl City.
