DigiTour teamed with Paul’s Team 10 social-media label and talent incubator to produce the live shows, which will present a combo of comedy, music and dance acts. The talent lineup includes dancers Lucas and Marcus Dobre, photographer Stan Gerards, actor and model Alex Lange, singer-songwriter AJ Mitchell and actress Alissa Violet. Model Neels Visser is slated to appear at select shows.
Jake Paul has 5.2 million followers on Vine, 2.9 million on Instagram, 785,000 on Twitter, and 278,000 on YouTube. He made his TV debut in Disney Channel’s “Bizaardvark,” which premiered earlier this summer.
DigiTour’s Team 10 tour coincides with the Oct. 25 release of Jake Paul’s book “You Gotta Want It,” published by Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books imprint. The 19-year-old is the younger brother of Logan Paul, who has an even bigger social fanbase and will appear in thriller “The Thinning” alongside Peyton List on YouTube Red later this year.
