Christina Perri Unveils US Tour; Headline Trek Kicks Off April 30th at Asheville's The Orange Peel; Special Guests on All Dates Will Be Sleeping at Last; LIVE! With Kelly Appearance Airing Today; VH1 Morning Buzz Performance Airing Tomorrow; "A Thousand Years" Remains a Multi-Format Radio Smash

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 14, 2012) - Atlantic recording artist Christina Perri has announced details of her upcoming US spring tour. The headlining trek gets underway April 27th at Hato Rey, Puerto Rico's Coliseo de Puerto Rico and then continues through late May (see attached itinerary). Support on all dates come from Sleeping At Last (who are featured alongside Perri's RIAA gold certified hit single, "A Thousand Years," on Summit Entertainment/Chop Shop/Atlantic's blockbuster "THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN - PART 1 - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK").

Pre-sale tickets are available to subscribers of the ChristinaPerri.com newsletter beginning today, February 14th -- offering a VIP package option which includes entrance to an exclusive meet & greet -- please visit www.christinaperri.com for complete details. Additional pre-sale tickets will be available on February 15th and 16th, with all remaining tickets then offered to the general public on February 17th.

Perri -- who has only just returned home following a sold out tour of the UK and Ireland -- will herald the upcoming trek with an eagerly awaited performance on today's installment of the nationally syndicated LIVE! With Kelly (check local listings). Christina Perri will also perform "A Thousand Years" on VH1's Morning Buzz on February 15th. These appearances follow high profile visits to such shows as ABC's Dancing with the Stars and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC's The Today Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBS' Late Show with David Letterman and The Early Show, TBS' Conan, and the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Recently named as iTunes' "Breakthrough Pop Artist of 2011," Perri attracted immediate popular and critical applause with her extraordinary debut album, "lovestrong." Highlighted by the 2x-platinum certified smash, "Jar of Hearts," the album entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 among the top 5 upon its release last year. "lovestrong." has also proven an unqualified international sensation, with top 5 success in Australia and Ireland as well as top 10 sales in Canada and the United Kingdom.

An engaging and magnetic live performer, Perri supported "lovestrong." with a series of acclaimed tours, including dates alongside fellow Atlantic recording artist James Blunt as well as her own sold-out headline trek. The latter schedule was highlighted by well-received appearances at such 2011 festivals as Lollapalooza and Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival.

In November, Perri followed "lovestrong." with the RIAA gold certified hit single, "A Thousand Years," exclusively featured on Summit Entertainment/Chop Shop/Atlantic's "THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN - PART 1 - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK." The track remains a multi-format radio favorite, with top 20 airplay at Hot AC and top 40 spins at CHR/Top 40 outlets nationwide. What's more, the "A Thousand Years" companion video -- directed by Jay Martin (whose previous work includes "Jar of Hearts," as well as clips for such artists as Kid Rock, Skylar Grey, and Death Cab for Cutie) -- was also an MTV favorite, earning major play on such platforms as MTV's AMTV, MTV Hits, MTV.com, mtvU, VH1.com, and VH1's Top 20 Video Countdown.
