"I couldn't think of a better way to spend the summer than being on the road and doing live shows," he said in a statement. "I wanted to do something bigger than what I've done before -- more cities and new music. It's a real opportunity for me to connect with all the people who've supported me through the years, as well as a chance to get new folks excited. It's gonna be a party for everyone!"

In 2010, Criss released a digital EP, "Human," which peaked at number 17 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers Album chart in the U.S.
