He was once known as the Australian version of Justin Bieber, and now Cody Simpson is preparing to hit the road with his pop idol!

Joining the ‘Boyfriend’ star on the road for his US ‘Believe’ tour, which kicks off on September 29, the Gold Coast cutie has told MTV News how their upcoming hook-up came about.

“Bieber actually asked me to join him for the first week of his tour,” he said.

“So I'm going to start in Vegas with him and do a couple of shows on the West coast around the time of my album."

And we’re glad to hear there’s no rivalry between the tween popstars!

“He's a good mate of mine,” Cody told MTV News.

“We've been in the studio a couple of times together. He hits me up from time to time like, 'I got an idea for you, come in we'll write a song and stuff.' It's just good to have musical relationships with people like that. It's good to learn from artists like that who are in similar positions as you are, but have been doing it for a little longer."
