Pop, blues, and rock’n’roll singer Elle King has announced that she will be adding headlining dates for the month of November in the U.S., following her UK tour with James Bay. Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 25th. (Find tour schedule below). King’s hit single “Ex’s & Oh’s” continues its run at #1 for the third consecutive week on the Alternative Radio Chart, after 21 weeks on the chart, and also holds the #1 spot on iTunes Alternative Songs chart. King became the second female artist in 18 years to reach #1 at Alternative Radio, following Lorde’s #1 with “Royals” in 2013.
King recently wrapped her nearly sold out U.S. headlining tour this summer along with a run of festival dates including Bumbershoot, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Squamish Valley. Additionally, she has performed at major UK festivals this year including Reading, Leeds, T in the Park and London Calling. She embarks on a UK tour with James Bay beginning on September 22nd in Manchester, England at the Apollo Theater, including 3 sold out nights at the Brixton Academy in London. King was also named VH1’s “You Oughta Know” artist for the month of July. In addition, she was one of the most buzzed about artists at this year’s SXSW with rave reactions from USA Today, Billboard and more. Click here for upcoming tour dates.
King has performed on The Today Show, Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Late Late Show with James Corden, Live with Kelly and Michael, and VH1 Big Morning Buzz Live in support of Love Stuff which has received overwhelming critical acclaim. Jon Pareles of The New York Times describes Elle King as “a sassy, hard-drinking, love-’em-and-leave-’em hellion with bad tattoos and a broad pedigree across rock, pop and country. She has Adele’s determination and Joan Jett’s stomp, Brenda Lee’s high-voiced bite and some AC/DC shriek.” King worked with acclaimed collaborators on her debut album Love Stuff including Dave Bassett, who produced and co-wrote “Ex’s and Oh’s,” Jeff Bhasker (Fun., Kanye West, The Rolling Stones), Eg White (Adele, Sam Smith), Jacknife Lee (R.E.M., U2,Crystal Castles), Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, Paul McCartney), and Martin Johnson, among others.
Additionally, King has been featured by The Wall Street Journal, Teen Vogue, People Magazine, USA Today, and many more. This year she also contributed two songs to the Hot Pursuit soundtrack (a film starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara).
