Cody Simpson is heading to Tucson.

Letting the teen squealing commence.

Can you hear me now? Here's the scoop:

Tickets ($39.50) go on sale Saturday morning for the Australian pop sensation Cody Simpson's June 13 show at Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St. We are on the itinerary of the North American tour that kicks off in late May and runs through the end of July.

In case you are out of the loop, Simpson has been on the lips and in the hearts of tweens and teens since he was discovered on YouTube in 2009 covering songs by Justin Timberlake, the Jackson 5 and his own songs. Call him the Justin Bieber of the Outback, with a career trajectory not quite as aggressive but heading in that direction.

In the four years since, Simpson, now 16, has been a regular on Disney and Radio Disney and has won a number of Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.
