Beginning in July of 2003 and before the release of "Metamorphosis," Duff and the album were given substantial promotional support from MTV, which highlighted "So Yesterday" on Making the Video and Total Request Live; she co-hosted the special TRL's All-Star Backyard BBQ.
 
 
"So Yesterday" was released to U.S. Top 40 radio in mid-July, after which it became the "most added" song on the format.
 
 
On the internet, AOL Music had a marketing relationship with Duff and Metamorphosis: it hosted the premiere of "So Yesterday" and recording a Sessions@AOL broadcast with her, among other content exclusive to AOL members.
 
 
In late September The WB Television Network aired an hour-long Hilary Duff birthday special, and MTV aired an episode of the documentary series Diary that followed Duff through a day.
 
 
A DVD containing music videos, performance and behind-the-scenes footage and bonus features "Hilary Duff: All Access Pass" was released in November.
 
 
Duff embarked on a four-week concert tour in the U.S. from November to early December 2003. The song "Anywhere But Here" was included on the soundtrack of the film "A Cinderella Story."
 
 
Duff promoted the film and "Metamorphosis" with a series of television appearances in July 2004, including one on ABC's Good Morning America. She performed before roughly 7,000 people, breaking a Good Morning America audience record.
 
 
In the same period she embarked on a U.S. summer tour, during which she performed a one-hour set that included Metamorphosis tracks, covers of The Go-Go's' "Our Lips Are Sealed" and The Who's "My Generation", and previously unheard material from Hilary Duff.
 
 
Haylie Duff was the opening act on the tour, which ran for 36 dates and sold well in major arenas; Pollstar editor-in-chief said that there was ''"a real positive buzz about ticket sales for Hilary's show".''
 
 
The tour was involved with the charity Kids with a Cause, of which Duff was a charter member in 1999; it sponsored a "Food for a Friend" drive and encouraged attendees to bring canned food to each tour venue, where the cans were collected and distributed across shelters in each city through which Duff toured.
 
 
By early August 2004, enough food had been amassed to feed more than 12,000 children. The success of the tour was credited with helping keep the teen pop market alive in the tour circuit and for being one of the ''"bright spots"'' in a slow concert season.
