Originally conceived as the "Sparks Fly Tour", Cosgrove provided a few tour dates on her official website in October 2010. In December, Cosgrove announced the tour on her official website before the news hit various media outlets the next day. Now known as the "Dancing Crazy Tour", Cosgrove toured the United States in theaters and music halls. Later, Cosgrove released a single entitled "Dancing Crazy", which was co-written by Avril Lavigne with Max Martin and Shellback, who produced it. Joining Cosgrove on tour was YouTube phenom, Greyson Chance, who gained notoriety in 2010 with his cover of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi". To introduce the tour, Cosgrove stated,

"I used to always think I was just going to be an actress, but now I'm leaning towards music and singing too. In the beginning, I didn't really think about my sound too much. I was just trying to figure out the kind of music that was really me and my thing. But my songs are about the experiences I've been through, and when I'm singing them, I try to put myself into it, so hopefully my music just reflects me."


On August 11, 2011, Cosgrove's tour bus was involved in a traffic collision on Interstate 70 in Vandalia, Illinois. Five passengers were injured including Cosgrove, who sustained a broken ankle. Initial reports confirmed that the tour would be postponed while Cosgrove recovered. A week later, Cosgrove released a statement stating that the tour was canceled by the doctor's orders.
