Whether it is positioning young teen acts for next level superstardom, helping the hottest current teen musical acts make their star even brighter or simply giving young musical acts a platform to perform on in front of thousands of screaming fans, the  SCREAM TOUR, has filled and continues to fill a much needed void for young musical fans and give thousands of young fans from coast to coast something that's specifically geared toward them and designed with them in mind.
During the last decade, the  SCREAM TOUR  successfully established its powerful brand and solidified its presence within the youth concert music scene. As the  SCREAM TOUR  shifts into the next phase of things with the next generation of youth in mind, it is staying true to its' roots, but is also extending its brand.   This year's  SCREAM TOUR  will not only present two of the hottest, best dance crews in America, but will also provide mainstream exposure for up and coming dance troupes and help prepare them for superstardom success.  SCREAM TOUR  2012  is titled  NEXT GENERATION: PART 2. It combines the best young rappers and singers of the day with the best youth dance crews of the day to create the "Biggest Teen Concert Dance Party" ever.
SCREAM TOUR NEXT GENERATION: PART 2  stars Atlantic Records' recording artist,Diggy,  who has undoubtedly established himself as one of the most lyrically sound rappers and teen superstars to date. The tour will also feature Pretty Hustle/Grand Hustle/Interscope recording artists  OMG Girlz, who have quickly risen to become America's newest sweethearts and the hottest female trio around. Also hitting the stage are two of the most talented R&B singers and newest teen heartthrobs--ByStorm Entertainment/RCA recording artist  Jawan Harris  and Young Money Cash Money Billionaires' (YMCMB) youngest act and Lil'Wayne protégé,  Torion.  Rounding out the star studded next generation talent is  TK-N-Ca$h,  who initially were introduced to America by Ludacris and the Disturbing the Peace family and are being hailed as two of the hottest and most talented young rap duos to emerge in years.
Featured dance acts on the bill will include  Collizion Crew  and  Jungle Boogie,  who both hail from Atlanta, Georgia. After appearing on the hit MTV show, "America's Best Dance Crew" (ABDC),  they rose to national notoriety and dance royalty. As part of a national dance competition, presented by Scream Star Entertainment and Dance 411, local dance troupes will also appear on stage nightly as the  SCREAM TOUR  searches across the country for the "Next Big Superstar Dance Crew."

 "After eleven years of bringing the  SCREAM TOUR  to our Nation's youth, it was important for me to continue to give young people what they want and long to see when they go out, " said Michael Mauldin, Founder and Creator of the  SCREAM TOUR.  "We are not deviating from the true essence, feel and look of the  SCREAM TOUR;  we are expanding on it and making it bigger and better than ever. Young people these days do it all. From rapping to singing to dancing, it's all an intricate part of their culture. We wanted to give young people from across the country the best of everything that has become a part of their life and lifestyle, just within a concert and teen dance party setting. What we're giving them with the  NEXT GENERATION: PART 2accomplishes that. In actuality, it's not just another show, it's a lifestyle."
