NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 5th, 2022) – Premier Productions and Donut Media announce Donut Media’s first live tour. The Youtube famous Donut crew — James, Nolan, Zach, Jeremiah and Justin — are piling in a bus this June to travel to five different cities for their interactive World Tour across the southwestern United States. 

“Over the past six years the Donut community has grown into something we could have never imagined, we had no idea that so many people shared our weird sense of humor as well as our real passion for cars,” said James Pumphrey, Donut’s Editor in Chief. “Their constant support has encouraged us to take big risks and continue to evolve what Donut is and can be. They helped us define who we are, from YouTube videos to podcasts to apparel and collectibles and now a live tour. We’ve been wanting to get out into the world and do this for a long time and finally, all of the pieces are coming together to make it a reality. Get ready, y’all. We promise to melt your brains…and your hearts.”

The automotive gurus are planning to bring audiences a wild night to remember directly inspired by their STREAMY AWARD WINNINGTM YouTube content. Audiences can expect a dynamic performance including elements from across the automotive landscape including history, science and of course comedic relief.
