For complete details and additional information, please see melaniemartinezmusic.com.
“The K-12 Tour” celebrates the release of Martinez’s hugely anticipated new album and its accompanying full-length film. “K-12” arrives on Friday, Sept. 6; pre-orders are available now HERE, with all pre-orders placed via Martinez’s webstore through Monday, Aug. 5 by 2 p.m. PT.
Melanie Martinez has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will go to support organizations bringing dignity, equity, and access to communities who need it. In the US specifically, the $1 per ticket sold will benefit The Trevor Project, and their work providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for LGBTQ youth.

“It’s been a bit since I’ve been on tour and I’m incredibly excited to bring the movie to life on stage,” says Martinez, “I’m putting all of my energy into making it not only visually stunning and pleasing to the senses but also a fun learning experience and a safe place to express yourself and be accepted for exactly who you are.”
“K-12” marks Martinez’s long anticipated follow-up to her RIAA platinum certified, 2015 debut album, “Cry Baby.” Produced by Michael Keenan with the exception of one song produced by Kinetics & One Love (who previously collaborated with Martinez on such hits as “Dollhouse” and “Carousel”), the album serves as a soundtrack companion to an eerily enchanting new musical film, written, directed, and starring Martinez. The official K-12 trailer is streaming now HERE and quickly received a stunning 2 million views in just 3 days of its premiere.
K-12 will have its official Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 3, exclusively at Hollywood’s famed Arclight Cinerama Dome. An official New York City premiere will follow on Thursday, Sept. 5 at the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square, with both premieres officially SOLD OUT within 24 hours. That same night will see K-12 shown as a one-night-only global event in theatres around the world. Presented by preeminent global theatrical distributor Abramorama, K-12 will play in 60+ theatres in the U.S. and many more internationally in over 27 countries including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, New Zealand, Ireland and Argentina, to name only a few. A complete list of participating theatres and tickets can be found now via www.k-12thefilm.com, with additional markets & theaters to be announced shortly.
