Christina Perri Gets Ready to Kick Off Spring Headline Tour April 30th in Asheville, NC; Acclaimed Pop Singer/Songwriter to Join Jason Mraz for North American Leg of Upcoming "Tour Is A Four Letter Word" World Tour; Dates Begin August 10th in New Orleans;(April 09, 2012)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 04/09/12 -- Atlantic recording artist Christina Perri has announced details of a major summer tour. The dates see Perri joining her Atlantic labelmate Jason Mraz on the North American leg of his hugely anticipated "Tour Is A Four Letter Word" World Tour, beginning August 10th at New Orleans' Lakefront Arena and then continuing though early October (see itinerary below).
Perri recently teamed with the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter for a performance of her upcoming new single, "Distance (Feat. Jason Mraz)." The appearance -- a highlight of Germany's 2012 ECHO Awards ceremonies -- can be viewed now at www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1NLeKP384g. The single will be released later this month.
Perri's original version of "Distance" will be featured in a series of promotional spots heralding ABC's hit series, Revenge, beginning April 11th. Christina appears in a video featuring highlights from the show that will be featured during the "Revenge: From the Beginning" clip show which airs on April 11th.
Perri will kick off her extensive US spring tour April 30th at Asheville, NC's The Orange Peel and then continuing through late May. Support on all dates come from Sleeping At Last.
Named as iTunes' "Breakthrough Pop Artist of 2011," Christina Perri attracted immediate popular and critical applause with her extraordinary debut album, "lovestrong." Highlighted by the 3x-platinum certified smash, "Jar of Hearts," the album entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 among the top 5 upon its release last year. "lovestrong." has also proven an unqualified international sensation, with top 5 success in Australia and Ireland as well as top 10 sales in Canada and the United Kingdom.
An engaging and magnetic live performer, Perri supported "lovestrong." with a series of acclaimed tours, including dates alongside fellow Atlantic recording artist James Blunt as well as her own sold-out headline trek. The latter schedule was highlighted by well-received appearances at such 2011 festivals as Lollapalooza and Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival.
In November, Perri followed "lovestrong." with the RIAA platinum certified hit single, "A Thousand Years," exclusively featured on Summit Entertainment/Chop Shop/Atlantic's "THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN - PART 1 - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK." The track was a multi-format radio favorite, with top 10 airplay at Hot AC and top 25 spins at CHR/Top 40 outlets nationwide. What's more, the "A Thousand Years" companion video was an MTV favorite, earning major play on such platforms as MTV's AMTV, MTV Hits, MTV.com, mtvU, VH1.com, and VH1's Top 20 Video Countdown.
Perri also made a number of high profile TV appearances in recent months, including the nationally syndicated LIVE! With Kelly, VH1's Morning Buzz, ABC's Dancing with the Stars and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC's The Today Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBS' Late Show with David Letterman and The Early Show, TBS' Conan, and the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show.
