Lizzo has a lot to celebrate right now. She’s enjoying the success of her new single “About Damn Time,” fans are still raving about her appearance on Saturday Night Live, her shapewear brand Yitty has launched, her new album Special is on the way this July and today is her birthday. But with this being Lizzo, that’s not all, of course! This week the bop star announced that she’ll be taking her exciting, new live show – which we got a preview of on SNL – on the road on The Special Tour, and she’ll be taking fellow femcee Latto along for the joyride.
The Special Tour will indeed live up to its name because this will be Lizzo’s first arena tour. Her glow up has been real since her last concert tour in 2019 to support the album Cuz I Love You, and she’s ready to show out on larger stages from coast to coast, from Florida to California.
This tour kicks off on the first day of autumn on September 23rd in Sunrise, Florida at the FLA Live Arena. From there, Lizzo will bounce around the country through mid-November. She’ll hit a total of 25 cities, including D.C., Philadelphia, NYC, Toronto, Chicago, Charlotte, Nashville, Houston, Denver, Seattle and San Francisco. The Special Tour will wrap on the left coast in Los Angeles at the Kia Forum on November 18th.
We fully expect Lizzo to put on a string of shows that are good as hell on this tour, but she’s also upped the ante with the addition of Latto as her opening act. The Rap Game season 1 winner will bring her big energy and catchy rhymes to The Special Tour as she performs tracks from her hit albums 777 and Queen Of Da Souf and more.
Tickets to see Lizzo and her special guest Latto on The Special Tour are currently on exclusive pre-sale to American Express cardholders. If you’re not a part of AMEX nation, you can still access the pre-sale right now by pre-saving Special from your digital music provider of choice. If you need to wait for payday to cop your tickets, they’ll go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 29th at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster.
