Christina Perri will hit the road this Summer on her first ever headlining tour of the US in support of her debut album lovestrong. – out May 10th on Atlantic Records. Kicking off on July 16th in Las Vegas, NV with a show at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the tour includes a performance at this year’s Lollapalooza and ends in her current home of Los Angeles, CA at the Troubadour on August 11th.
Christina Perri is one of the most buzzed-about new acts of the past year thanks to her runaway hit single “Jar Of Hearts.” The song catapulted her into the spotlight after airing on So You Think You Can Dance. Since then Perri has performed live on Conan, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CBS The Early Show, garnered accolades from the press including USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, ELLE, and Teen Vogue (among others) and her music and songs have been described as “coolly soulful” (Philadelphia Inquirer), “raw, riveting and emotional” (Huffington Post) and “raspy tales of love” (Billboard).
“Jar Of Hearts” has since been certified double platinum, and lovestrong.’s second single “Arms” is surefire to be another hit, with VH1 adding the video straight into medium rotation. Billboard described the new single as “an effervescent love song that pairs the voracity of Florence & the Machine with the growling undertones of Adele’s voice.”
Christina Perri’s release of lovestrong. on May 10th will surely solidify her as one of 2011’s great success stories. Currently wrapping up a nationwide tour as main support for James Blunt, this Philly native will perform on The Ellen Degeneres Show on May 13th, The Today Show on May 18th and Jimmy Kimmel Live also on May 18th.
