Atlantic recording artist Melanie Martinez has announced the final dates of her marathon North American headline tour. The “Cry Baby Tour” will stop by The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday, October 21 at 8 p.m.
Tickets, and a limited amount of VIP packages, will be on sale to the general public beginning Friday, June 24 at 10 a.m. For complete details and on-sale information, please see melaniemartinezmusic.com/#tour.
Martinez’s kaleidoscopic companion video for “Alphabet Boy” has proven an online phenomenon, earning over 1 million individual views in the first eight hours of its release; Melanie’s fastest growing video yet. “Alphabet Boy” – which now boasts total views exceeding 11 million – is streaming now at Martinez’s YouTube channel, which now has over 2.2 million subscribers.
The unstoppable popularity of “Alphabet Boy” lit a fire on Martinez’s already impressive sales figures, with “Cry Baby” catapulting to #31 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 after a 31% sales increase in the days following the new video’s debut. “Cry Baby” made a stellar chart debut upon its arrival last year, arriving at #6 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 while also coming at #1 on the “Top Alternative Albums” chart. The album – which follows the Long Island-based artist’s 2014 breakthrough, “THE DOLLHOUSE EP” – also had an explosive first week on the iTunes Store, ascending to #1 on the “Top Alternative Albums” chart as well as to #4 on the overall “Top Albums” tally.
“Cry Baby,” the album’s compelling title track, was joined earlier this year by a new companion video. The clip drew 1 million views in its first 18 hours online. “Cry Baby” has now received close to 19 million views via Martinez’s official YouTube channel.
