"Cody Simpson is much more than a teen heartthrob.  He is one of those rare artists whose talent transcends trends.  His live performances are among the finest on the road today and those fans lucky enough to catch his headlining tour are in for an incredible concert experience,"  according to Randy Phillips, President & CEO of AEG Live.  "We are extremely lucky and proud to be Cody Simpson's partner in what will be a very long and eventful career."

The summer tour will be heralded by the new single, "Pretty Brown Eyes," set for release at all DSPs on Tuesday, April 23rd.  "Pretty Brown Eyes" precedes the arrival of Simpson's much anticipated second album. The as-yet-untitled collection – which follows last year's debut, "PARADISE" – is set for release this summer. Complete details will be announced shortly.

Simpson – who has spent much of the past year on the road, with highlights including his first-ever European headline tour as well as dates on Justin Bieber's world-conquering Believe Tour – will be performing "Pretty Brown Eyes" at the upcoming Radio Disney Music Awards. Cody is among the night's top nominees, earning nods for "He's The One – Best Male Artist,"  "XOXO – Crush Song" (for "Wish U Were Here (Feat. Becky G)"), and "So FANtastic – Fiercest Fans." The Radio Disney Music Awards will be presented live from Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Saturday, April 27th and broadcast across multiple platforms, including Vevo, The Disney Channel, Radio Disney and their respective websites. For complete details, please see
