Cody Simpson Joining Big Time Rush’s Summer Tour
Posted by Newson 02/29/2012 at 11:14 AM
Since completing his Welcome to Paradise tour, fans won’t have to wait that much longer before Cody Simpson hits the road again. The Adorable Aussie has signed on to open for Nickelodeon dreamboats Big Time Rush on select dates of their upcoming Big Time Summer Tour, increasing the need for on-site paramedics at medium-sized venues around the country. Though likely tired from a whirlwind promotional tour of his own, Simpson seems excited to get back at it; he and BTR member Carlos Pena traded bromantical tweets following Tuesday’s announcement, which should further fans’ desire for goofy backstage videos like this throughout the summer voyage.
The Big Time Summer Tour kicks off July 5 in Columbus, Ohio, and will hit 50 cities across the U.S. and Canada through September. Along with Simpson, X Factor finalist Rachel Crow will serve as opening act on certain dates. We’ve already been privy to the extreme reactions BTR can cause by just showing up places, so pairing the boys with the originator of the “side-swept surfer ‘do” should introduce us to new levels of high-pitched screaming. And with so much cuteness on one stage, when will one be able to sneak off for a bathroom break? Tickets to this summer’s shows go on sale March 10, with more opening acts to be announced. Check out a full lists of dates below.
