In the words of Victoria Justice, it will soon be time to "Freak the Freak Out" at the Marymoor Park Concert Series.
AEG Live has announced two shows so far: Justice will perform on July 3 and Pink Martini will pour into the 5,000-seat outdoor Redmond venue on Aug. 4. More concerts will be added soon. For updates, check www.marymoorconcerts.com.
Justice, a 20-year-old singer and actress, was the star of her own hit Nickelodeon series "Victorious," in which she played the musically talented "Tori Vega," who unexpectedly found herself navigating life as a student at "Hollywood Arts High," an elite performing arts high school.
Her hits include "Freak the Freak Out," "Beggin’ On Your Knees," "Best Friend’s Brother" and the show's theme song "Make it Shine."
The 2011 "Victorious" soundtrack debuted at No. 5 on the Top 200 charts and No. 2 on the pop charts.
Her "Here's 2 Us" summer tour will run June 19-Aug. 16.
According to founder and artistic director Thomas M. Lauderdale, "Pink Martini is like a romantic Hollywood musical of the 1940s or 50s, but with a global perspective which is modern. We bring melodies and rhythms from different parts of the world together to create something which is new and beautiful."
The Portland, Ore.-based "little orchestra" has performed its multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Canada and the United States.
China Forbes is the "diva next door" lead vocalist for Pink Martini, which penned its first song "Sympathique," or "Je ne veux pas travailler" (I don't want to work), and it became a huge hit in France.
Its 2004 album "Hang on Little Tomato" climbed to No. 1 on Amazon.com's best-sellers list.
