NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 21, 2011) - Atlantic recording artist Cody Simpson has announced details of his upcoming tour at select Simon Property Group malls throughout the U.S.

The "Coast To Coast Tour" is presented by Pastry and co-sponsored by Claire's and Defeat The Label.

Simpson -- whose new single, "On My Mind," is available now at iTunes -- will launch his tour with a performance on NBC's TODAY SHOW on August 5th before hitting the road August 6th to appear at Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove, New York and then travel the country making further free performances through mid-September (see itinerary below). Cody has also scheduled a number of additional dates, including shows alongside Miranda Cosgrove and appearances at such radio concerts as 98.5 KLUC's End Of Summer Block Party in Las Vegas -- for full details, please visit

"On My Mind" is quickly shaping up as Simpson's breakthrough U.S. hit. The track is currently climbing the charts at CHR/Pop radio outlets nationwide, having already hit #1 at Radio Disney (his second chart-topper at the network). Meanwhile, the "On My Mind" companion video -- directed by Travis Kopach (Panic! At The Disco, 3OH!3, Boys Like Girls) -- is a certified YouTube smash with over 2 million views and counting at Cody's official YouTube channel,

With over one million Twitter followers, over 1.3 million Facebook likes and over 64 million YouTube views, Simpson is already a genuine phenomenon. The Queensland, Australia-based singer first made waves with the release of last year's single, "iYiYi (Feat. Flo Rida)," which was later featured on his debut EP, titled "4 U." Simpson also won over fans in the U.S. with a series of live performances, including 2010's Campified tour of over 30 different summer camps across the country.

Simpson -- who has only just returned from a sold out co-headline tour with Greyson Chance -- has already been featured in an array of national publications, while also receiving extensive TV coverage including E! News and Access Hollywood. His recent TV performances include The Disney Channel's So Random, CBS Saturday Early Show, and Australian Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards.
