Perri will celebrate the arrival of “HEAD OR HEART” with a highly anticipated North American headline tour. The dates get underway Friday, April 4th at Denver’s Ogden Theatre and then continue through late May, with highlights including a two night stand at New York City’s famed Irving Plaza on April 16th and 17th, a hometown show at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory April 19th and Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theatre on May 17th.

For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.christinaperri.com/tour.
“HEAD OR HEART” – which follows the acclaimed singer/songwriter’s breakthrough 2011 debut, “lovestrong” – was recorded over the past year with production from Martin Johnson (Avril Lavigne, Gavin Degraw), Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, One Direction), John Hill (P!nk, Mayer Hawthorne, Santigold), and Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco). The album was mixed by GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer Manny Marroquin (Kanye West, John Legend, Alicia Keys).
“HUMAN,” the recently released first single from “HEAD OR HEART,” is available now at all digital retailers. Hailed by Billboard as a “delicate alt-pop ballad that should delight supporters of (Perri’s) breakthrough single ‘Jar of Hearts,’” the track can be heard now at http://youtu.be/8VFwcNTiwPY. In addition, Perri will perform “HUMAN” on NBC’s TODAY with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford Thursday, December 12th.
Named as iTunes’ “Breakthrough Pop Artist of 2011,” Perri earned critical applause and an increasingly fervent fan following with her extraordinary debut, “lovestrong.” Highlighted by the 2x-platinum certified smash in Canada, “Jar of Hearts,” the album – produced by Grammy-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, My Morning Jacket) proved to be an unqualified international sensation, including a top 10 debut in Canada.
Perri followed “lovestrong.” with the multi-format radio favourite and 3x-platinum single (in Canada) “A Thousand Years,” exclusively featured on Summit Entertainment/Chop Shop/Atlantic’s “THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 & 2– ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS.”
