NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/12 -- Atlantic recording artist Cody Simpson has responded to overwhelming popular demand by adding additional dates to his upcoming "Welcome To Paradise Tour" which sold out in less than 2 days. The trek gets underway on February 2nd with a sold out show at Boston's Paradise Rock Club and then continues through the month, including completely sold out stops in New York City, Philadelphia, Toronto, Montreal, Cleveland and more. The new dates were revealed today via the official Cody Simpson webpage, www.codysimpson.com/shows.
With nearly 2 million Twitter followers, over 2 million Facebook likes and over 110 million YouTube views, Simpson is already an indisputable phenomenon. The Australian-born star made a stunning chart debut last summer as his "COAST TO COAST" EP entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #12. In addition, Simpson ascended to #13 on Billboard's annual "21 Under 21" ranking, which noted that he is "slowly becoming the all-encompassing pop phenom that could make him a household name by this time next year."
"COAST TO COAST" is highlighted by the hit single, "On My Mind" which proved a top 40 favorite at Pop radio outlets nationwide, having also hit #1 at Radio Disney (his second chart-topper at the network). The "On My Mind" companion video -- directed by Travis Kopach (Panic! At The Disco, 3OH!3, Boys Like Girls) -- is also a certified YouTube blockbuster with over 11.5 million views and counting at Cody's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/CodySimpsonMusic.
Currently hard at work recording his eagerly anticipated full length debut album, Simpson performed on NBC's Progressive Skating and Gymnastics Spectacular, this past Sunday. The performance follows an array of high profile TV appearances, including visits to ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the Disney Channel's Prank Stars, Nickelodeon's Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures, QVC's Sunday Best, and the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show and Live! with Kelly, as well as a performance and mentor role on Radio Disney and the Disney Channel's "N.B.T. (Next Big Thing)" talent contest. An MTV "PUSH Artist of the Week," Simpson was also among the biggest winners at Australian Nickelodeon's 2011 Kids Choice Awards, taking home trophies in a trio of categories, including "Awesome Aussie," "Aussie Muso," and the prestigious "Super Fresh."
