Bo will support the release of "The Real Thing" with multiple television appearances, including The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, The Billboard Music Awards (6 December), The Today Show and Live With Regis and Kelly (both 9 December), Ellen (13 December), The Tony Danza Show (15 December), The Early Show (16 December), The Radio Music Awards (19 December) and Jimmy Kimmel Live (20 December).

They can also attend the taping of the Oxygen Network special in New York on 7 December and on 20 December, fans can watch Bice perform live on the outdoor set of Jimmy Kimmel's show.

"Bo Bice is indeed 'the real thing'. The album's title is so very accurate in not only reflecting its first single but also the extent of who and what Bo and his talent represent," said BMG US chairman and CEO Clive Davis.
