Anyone that knows and loves JoJo knows about the label drama that left her career in limbo for several years. Though she's since found her freedom and delivered her recent album 2016 album, Mad Love, she hasn't forgotten about the time she kept the flame of her career alive by releasing assorted covers, leaked tracks and mixtapes. In fact, she's throwing back to that time with the announcement of a new tour that she's calling, what else, the Leaks, Covers & Mixtapes Tour.
The singer announced the tour via Instagram, revealing that she's just as excited as her fans to hit the road once again. "You have no idea how excited I am to sing these songs live for the very first time ... Leaks. Covers. & Mixtapes," she wrote. "This tour is especially for everyone who rocked with me when my hands were tied and my voice was silenced... thought it’d be mad fun to perform these songs since they were such a massive part of my life and you have always shown such passion for them."
According to the post, JoJo is still finalizing the setlist she'll be bringing to the stage, but she does have the dates already lined up. Starting May 29th, she'll kick off the tour in Anaheim, California, before making several stops throughout the month of June — landing in cities like LA, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, D.C., Philly, NYC, Atlanta and Austin before wrapping things up in Dallas on June 26th. She also warned fans that she wants to keep the shows as intimate as possible, so those that wish to see her do her thing should grab tickets while they can.
