Are you ready for some extreme teenage fun? If so, Google Cody Simpson and hit images! OMG, this boy is seriously cute! I can see why all the young girls are crazy about him. After I saw all of that, I looked up his website and YouTube channel – now I see why the parents and his record label like him. This guy is more than a heartthrob – he has real talent! This makes me happy to share the below announcement of Cody Simpson bringing all of his cuteness, and talent to a stage near you this summer.
Atlantic recording artist Cody Simpson has just kicked off a major North American headline tour. The 36 city “Paradise Tour”, part of AEG Lives’ worldwide touring partnership with Simpson, started on May 30th at The Moran Theatre in Jacksonville, Florida. Supporting Simpson on all dates will be Ryan Beatty and opener Before You Exit.

“Cody Simpson is much more than a teen heartthrob. He is one of those rare artists whose talent transcends trends. His live performances are among the finest on the road today and those fans lucky enough to catch his headlining tour are in for an incredible concert experience,” according to Randy Phillips, President & CEO of AEG Live. “We are extremely lucky and proud to be Cody Simpson’s partner in what will be a very long and eventful career.”
With over 4.6 million Twitter followers, more than 4 million Facebook likes, and an astonishing 141.5 million YouTube views, 16-year-old Cody Simpson is a true pop sensation. The Queensland, Australia-born singer/songwriter arrived on the scene in 2010 and quickly made a name for himself via a series of singles and videos as well as innumerable TV and concert appearances.
Simpson’s debut album, “PARADISE,” arrived in October 2012. With its refreshing blend of contemporary high-energy with acoustic guitar-driven beach pop, the album – which includes the hit singles, “Wish U Were Here (Feat. Becky G)” and “Got Me Good” – confirmed Cody as more than just a worldwide multimedia phenomenon – he’s a distinctive and original artist in his own right.
The summer tour will be heralded by the new single, “Pretty Brown Eyes,” set for release at all DSPs on Tuesday, April 23rd. “Pretty Brown Eyes” precedes the arrival of Simpson’s much anticipated second album. The as-yet-untitled collection – which follows last year’s debut, “PARADISE” – is set for release this summer. Complete details will be announced shortly.
Be sure to catch him live this summer on the official Cody Simpson North American Tour!
