Beabadoobee will tour both Australia and New Zealand for the first time this September.
The tour, announced today (April 5), supports the singer-songwriter’s forthcoming second studio album, Beatopia. She shared news about the album last month, along with the release of lead single “Talk.” A UK tour was also announced at the time, followed by a world tour.
In a press statement, Beabadoobee said she was “so excited” to be touring Australasia. “I love all my fans there and I’ve waited a long time to get over it,” she said. “It will be my first visit and I’m honored to be able to play tracks from my new album Beatopia live for you [and] personally. I hope the crowds go wild!”
Beatopia will serve as the follow-up to Beabadoobee’s 2020 debut album Fake It Flowers. The album peaked in the top 10 in the UK Albums Chart and was praised in a five star rating from as “the sound of a modern guitar in great bloom”. NME.
“The jump from bedroom dweller to teenage riot instigator was rapid and fruitful, and what might be considered derivative is genuine in every way,” reads the review.
The tour goes on sale this Thursday, April 7th at 10am local time. The general sale begins 24 hours later on Friday, April 8th. All ticketing links and information are available through Handsome Tours. Check out the full list of tour dates below.
Beabadoobee will release the 14-track album Beatopia on July 15th. “There is no song that sounds the same as the others,” she said in a recent interview about the record. “I don’t know how to explain it, but it sounds a lot like 2006. I feel like this new album is what I want it to sound like.”
