In what is sure to be one of the most talked about tours of the summer, Christina Perri and Colbie Caillat have announced plans for a North American co-headline tour. “The Girls Night Out, Boys Can Come Too Tour” kicks off Friday, July 10th at Uncasville, CT’s Mohegan Sun Arena and then travels through late August (see attached itinerary). Support throughout comes from Rachel Platten. VIP presale ticketing begins Wednesday, April 8th; all remaining tickets will then be released to the general public starting on Friday, April 10th.
Christina Perri has spent much of the past year on the road celebrating the release of her acclaimed second album “HEAD OR HEART.” In addition to high profile TV appearances, festival performances, and treks with OneRepublic and Demi Lovato, Perri recently returned from her biggest worldwide headline tour to date, with sold out shows in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America.
“Human,” the acclaimed first single from “HEAD OR HEART,” was certified RIAA platinum for sales now well in excess of 1 million. Additionally, the album features the singles “Burning Gold” and “The Words” not to mention the upbeat fan favorite, “Be My Forever”, the duet that Christina did with Ed Sheeran.
Named iTunes’ “Breakthrough Pop Artist of 2011,” Perri earned critical applause and an increasingly fervent fan following with her extraordinary debut, “lovestrong.” Highlighted by the 4x-platinum certified smash, “Jar of Hearts,” the album entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 among the top 5 upon its initial 2011 release. Perri followed “lovestrong.” with the RIAA 4x-platinum certified hit single, “A Thousand Years,” exclusively featured on “THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 & 2– ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS.”
Two-time Grammy Award-winning artist Colbie Caillat released her fourth full-length album, “GYPSY HEART,” in September of 2014. The album immediately landed in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Top 200 Chart fueled by the strength of her gold-selling single “Try”. Co-written by legendary producer and singer-songwriter, Babyface, “Try” became one of the biggest performing songs featured as iTunes “Single Of The Week.” Quickly amassing nearly 40 million YouTube/VEVO views, the single’s inspirational companion video became a global viral sensation and reached the #1 spot on the iTunes Video Chart. At radio, that success continued as the song went Top 10 at Hot AC.
To date, Caillat has sold over six million albums and ten million singles worldwide. Her breakthrough hit “Bubbly” remains “one of the best-selling digital tracks in history” and her multi-platinum debut COCO hit #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, while her gold-selling sophomore set Breakthrough landed at #1. 2011’s All Of You yielded the gold “I Do” and platinum “Brighter Than The Sun,” which enjoyed over twenty film and television placements.
An international live draw, Caillat has played sold out venues everywhere alongside artists from John Mayer to Sheryl Crow.
After two years of writing Rachel Platten would find her first big spark with “Fight Song.” She turned inward by telling her own story through it. Turns out it was just the message people needed. “The reactions were honest, and intense. People have been sending me the most beautiful stories of how they refuse to give up,” she recalls. The fire that “Fight Song” ignited has connected not only with music fans but also Columbia Records. Now planning her major label debut, Rachel is currently touring the U.S. with Andy Grammer, performing a number of songs from her cache.
