MySpace Music is proud to present the latest “Secret Show” featuring international phenomenon Owl City on Sunday, September 12, in Atlanta, GA.

His debut album, Ocean Eyes, was released in July 2009 and went platinum on April 1st, 2010. The first single, “Fireflies,” is triple platinum in the US and hit the #1 spot on the Hot 100 twice as well as going #1 in 23 countries around the world! He played his first live show in February of 2009 and has been on the road with his band since May of 2009 on several consecutive sold-out headlining tours in the US and abroad. The MySpace Music “Secret Show” in Atlanta, GA, featuring Owl City is being sponsored by Coke and will be broadcast live via the MySpace Music “Secret Show” Blog.
