Closer was released in November 2003 and was Josh Groban’s sophomore cd. After a couple of months in the Top Ten, it zoomed at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 at the dawn of 2004. Produced by David Foster, that milestone cd eventually sold over six million copies in the US alone. That triumphant chart performance led to a high-profile tour that sent the young singer all over the US to perform at sold-out venues. His tour was captured on Groban’s next cd/dvd entitled Live At The Greek. Recorded at Los Angeles’ infamous Greek Theater, Live At The Greek delivered top ratings when broadcasted on the PBS “Great Performances” series, became an out-of-the-box best-seller and was certified six-times platinum.
