Greyson Chance, Cody Simpson Announce Waiting4U Tour Dates
Greyson Chance and Cody Simpson have announced the tour dates for their Waiting4U tour, which could have just as easily been dubbed the Teenage Trouble tour.
Chance -- who was made famous after Ellen DeGeneres saw his cover of Lady Gaga's 'Paparazzi' on YouTube -- believes that their age match-up will benefit them well for a co-headlining tour. "Me and Cody, we relate to each other," he tells Billboard. "We're both around the same age, and we're both somewhat doing the same thing, but I think what's great about this tour is it's going to be showing two sides of pop music. I'm more of a pop-rock style, and Cody is more dance-pop. So it's going to be cool for the fans to see the differences in the ways that we relate, and how pop music can be very transversal. I think it's going to be an amazing tour."
Chance turned 13 in August, and released his debut single, 'Waiting Outside the Lines,' in October. Now, the just-turned teen is eager to see the ladies line up and chant his name. "I hope they're pounding on our bus by the end of the tour!" he admits. "The fans are just so incredible. [Cody and I] just love them so much, and they're the reason why we're here."
Simpson chimed in via statement that he, too, is ready to hit the ground running. "The upcoming tour with Greyson Chance is going to be a blast!" the 'iYiYi' singer says. "I'm so hyped to travel around the US and visit different cities ... I can't wait 4 U to see it, and can't wait to see everybody!"
The 13 and 14-year-old music prodigies will hit the road for a month-long run, which hits many major hubs including Chicago, New York City and Houston. The Chance/Simpson tour kicks off April 11.
