Beabadoobee has announced a slew of North American tour dates for later in the year in support of her newly-released second album, ‘Beatopia’.
Following US dates supporting Bleachers, festival appearances in Europe and Japan, and tours in Australia and the UK, Beabadoobee will kick off her North American headline run in late October, with dates running through to early December.
Support on the tour will come from Beabadoobee’s Dirty Hit labelmates, Lowertown. The duo released their latest EP, ‘The Gaping Mouth’, last year. See a full list of tour dates below – tickets are on sale this Friday (July 22), at 10am local time.
‘Beatopia’, the follow-up to Beabadoobee’s 2020 debut LP ‘Fake It Flowers’, was released last Friday (July 15). Four singles were released prior to the album coming out: ‘Talk’, ‘See You Soon’, ‘Lovesong’ and ’10:36′. In a four-star review of ‘Beatopia’, NME said that the album saw “the seeds that were planted in ‘Fake It Flowers’ not only blossom, but inhabit an entirely different world”.
Speaking to NME during a backstage interview at Glastonbury 2022 last month, the singer-songwriter elaborated on the childhood “dream world” behind the album’s concept. “It was much more of a physical thing when I was seven,” she said.
“I thought I could literally be in this world – I think it was just a way of escaping everything that was happening in life at that time, and then I forgot about it because shit happened. Then I just realised that I could finally accept it now and I could make a whole album about it and find myself within it.”
