Written by torresanz on April 26, 2022
On the heels of releasing her comeback single “About Damn Time” earlier in April, Lizzo announced plans for her Special Tour this fall on Monday (April 25). The North American trek will take place at arenas across the country with support from Latto.
“3 years since my last tour… and I’m finally coming back to YOU! So excited to announce the SPECIAL TOUR ‘22 Feat @latto777,” she wrote on Instagram. “Y’all ready to feel special? Well… ITS ABOUT DAMN TIME.”
The tour kicks off in Florida on September 23 and will make stops in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Indianapolis, Detroit, Houston, Dallas, and many more before wrapping up in Los Angeles at The Forum on November 18.
As for tickets, the pre-sale starts on April 26 for American Express cardholders and then April 27 for those who pre-saved Lizzo’s Special album, which is set to arrive on July 15. The rest of the general public will have their shot on Friday (April 29).
It’s been three years since Lizzo’s last tour and the release of her Cuz I Love You album also came in 2019. The “Truth Hurts” singer made her Saturday Night Live debut taking on host duties and also performed as the musical guest on April 16.
She’s also been the subject of dating rumors and confirmed the mystery man from her Valentine’s Day date is now her boyfriend, which TheShadeRoom alleges to be actor Myke Wright.
As for Latto, she’s coming off the success of “Big Energy,” which reached the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 5, along with the release of her 777 album. In a recent interview with Audacy, Big Latto revealed that Cardi B is a huge inspiration when it comes to her live performance.
“She really had me entertained to where I wasn’t caring about the heat or standing on my feet all day,” she reflected on seeing Cardi at Rolling Loud Miami in 2018. “I was entertained. So I took that and ran with it like ‘you know what? I wanna put on a show too.’”
