MELANIE MARTINEZ SETS “CRY BABY TOUR 2016”

Atlantic recording artist Melanie Martinez has announced plans for a major North American headline tour presented by AEG Live. The “Cry Baby Tour 2016” gets underway February 20th at The Showbox in Seattle, WA and then continues through late March (see attached itinerary). Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, December 11th at Noon local time; a limited number of VIP packages will be available, including early entrance to the venue, an exclusive soundcheck party, and more. For complete details, please see www.aeglive.com and melaniemartinezmusic.com/#tour.

New York Area-based fans are invited to celebrate the “Cry Baby Tour 2016” on Friday, December 11th at noon by visiting the PlayStation Theater in Times Square (1515 Broadway at w.44th Street) where they can register to win an array of prizes, including one of seven Grand Prize VIP tickets for Martinez’s eagerly awaited March 24th concert. Updated news and other promotions can be found at melaniemartinezmusic.com.

Melanie has spent the past few months celebrating the release of her debut album, CRY BABY, on a hugely successful sold out North American headline tour. The shows earned rave reviews from The New York Times which noted that “Ms. Martinez’s voice — whispery, sardonic, tearful, furious — was joined by high-pitched singalongs, throughout verses and choruses,” while The Boston Globe calls Melanie “an anti-pop force to reckon with.”

Hailed as a stunning singer, performer, and visual presence, Martinez made her late night TV debut this past October with stellar performances of “Pity Party” and “Soap” on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly; a return visit is set for Monday, December 14th (check local listings). Other high profile TV performances include an appearance on TBS’ Conan.

Melanie’s debut album, CRY BABY, made an extraordinary entry onto the charts upon release debuting on the Billboard 200 at #6, #5 on the “Top Albums” chart and #1 on the Billboard “Current Alternative Album” chart. In addition, CRY BABY hit #1 on the iTunes Alternative Albums Chart, and #8 on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart. Most recently, Melanie released a captivating double feature “Soap/Training Wheels” video that was both written and directed by Melanie Martinez.
