Cody Simpson Kicks Off Welcome to Paradise Tour

February 4, 2012

I think we can all agree, that there is nothing sexier than a boy with an accent, and personally Australian accents are one of my favorite! Although Cody Simpson is a little young for my taste, there is no denying how adorable he is, and I think his 1.8 million followers would agree! Simpson was discovered on YouTube in 2009 by Grammy-nominated record producer Shawn Campbell. His first single “iYiYi” was released in May of 2010, and in June of that same year, he and his family relocated to Los Angeles to record under Atlantic Records. Simpson has released two EP’s entitled, “4 U” and “Coast to Coast” but his fans just cannot get enough and anxiously await his début album. Since Simpson began posting his videos he has acquired himself quite the fan group, which call themselves “Simpsonizers,” and as the teen artist continues on this musical path, I can only imagine how many girls will jump on the bandwagon.

The “Simpsonizers” excitement about the Welcome to Paradise Tour is overpowering, seeing as the entire tour was sold out in just two days. The tour began yesterday in Boston, and will continue until the end of the month hitting a total of 19 cities, in the US and Canada. Simpson’s excitement matches that of his fans, the teen sensation tweeted yesterday, “First #WELCOMETOPARADISE show tonight in Boston at the Paradise Rock Club. Let’s start this tour off right! I’m hyped.” Simpson is joined on tour by close friend, and incredibly talented Jessica Jarrell, who also toured with Justin Bieber on the first leg of his My World Tour just last year. Simpson and Bieber both share the same manager Scott “Scooter” Braun, and I think we all know that if Scooter has something to do with it, then Cody Simpson has nothing short of a successful career ahead of him. We wish Cody all the best on his “Welcome to Paradise” tour, and along with his “Simpsonizers”, cannot wait to see what the future holds for this adorable little Aussie!
