Do you hear that? If you listen closely you can make out pre-teen and teenage girls all around the United States screaming in joy that Greyson Chance and Cody Simpson announced today (March 10th) they will be touring together this Spring 2011. The ‘Waiting4U’ tour will start on April 11th in Denver, Colorado and conclude on May 17th in Portland, Oregon.
The spring 2011 tour will be in Chicago, IL on April 15th at the House of Blues. In October of 2010 Cody Simpson made a stop at the House of Blues Chicago where he performed in the dining area to a bunch of screaming fans. In 2010 he performed across America at different middle schools as a ‘testing-the-waters’ type tour.
It must have proved successful because him along with Greyson Chance will be headlining some decent sized venues this spring. The House of Blues in Chicago holds around 1,250 people, and with the amount of buzz both of these young men have, chances are it will sell out.
Greyson Chance became an internet YouTube sensation in April 2010 with his cover of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” at a sixth-grade music festival. Television personality Ellen quickly had him on the show to perform, and after his popularity kept growing DeGeneres had him on her show a second time and announced he would become the first signed artist to her new recording label eleveneleven.
