Kevin Pereira's Awesomesauce Live Tour Postponed


LOS ANGELES - September 19, 2012 - Due to conflicting promotional obligations from added markets for Kevin Pereira's new Warner Bros. show, "Let's Ask America," the inaugural leetUP "Awesomesauce.Live" tour has been postponed. The interactive comedy variety show, which Complex Magazine dubbed "Kevin Pereira's Coachella for Nerds" was set to descend upon and ravage pop culture fanatics in 10 cities this fall, beginning September 20 in Seattle, with stops in Portland, Austin, Dallas, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Minneapolis, Madison, and Chicago. Pereira, who was to be joined on tour by a series of geeky celebs and interweb stars including Epic Meal Time, VJ Mike Relm and YouTube darling, Grace Helbig, assures fans efforts will be made to bring leetUP to a city near them as scheduling permits.

Said Pereira, "It was not an easy decision to postpone, but it's the right one. We know our fans deserve nothing short of an over-the-top spectacle and we will deliver when the time is right. We are sorry for any temporarily broken hearts. Email us at [email protected] and we will get back to you with digital hugs and gratitude."

Promoters of the tour remain enthusiastic about leetUP "Awesomesauce.Live!" and are looking at dates to reschedule. "With the great success of the first leetUP in Los Angeles, we fully support and are looking forward to promoting dates in the future," said Lesley Olenik, Talent Buyer for Goldenvoice.

Ticketholders can get refunds at original point of purchase.

Fans are encouraged to visit for more information and future dates.

leetUP was created in 2012 by the tour's host, Kevin Pereira, G4 Network founder, Charles Hirschhorn and creative collective iam8bit, as a way for nerds to come together to interactively celebrate all things geek in a high-energy, entertaining and innovative environment. The experimental pooling of their collective experience and tech "know-how" was a huge hit, delighting over 1,000 fans at Los Angeles' Club Nokia with the first-of-its kind experience to the world of the elite geek. Post-event, social media blew up with fan postings of photos and videos from the event, leading to demands across the country for leetUP to take the show on the road.
