Melanie Martinez has today announced her new “The K-12 Tour”, which will come to the UK in December this year. The UK run will take in Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham, Portsmouth, Leeds and London (Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 9th December). General sale will commence at 10am BST on Friday 9th August HERE. “The K-12 Tour” celebrates the release of Martinez’s highly-anticipated new album and its accompanying full-length film – “K-12” will be released on 6th September and is available to pre-order now [all pre-orders placed via Martinez’s webstore through to Monday 5th August 5th will receive presale access to tickets for “The K-12 Tour”].
Melanie Martinez says – “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 anticipated follow-up to her UK Gold certified 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 new 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.
K-12 will have its official Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday, September 3rd, exclusively at Hollywood’s famed Arclight Cinerama Dome. An official New York City premiere will follow on Thursday, September 5th at the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square – both premieres 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.
