Tori Kelly announces Spring 2016 North American tour

Capitol Records recording artist Tori Kelly – nominated for a GRAMMY award in the Best New Artist category – will kick off an extensive North American tour on April 5th at Humphrey’s in San Diego, CA. The spring run includes her first-ever headline shows at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (April 12th), The Beacon Theatre in New York City (April 28th) and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, where the tour will wrap up on May 21st. See below for itinerary.

Tickets will be made available to Tori’s FAHLO fan club prior to going on sale to the public. VIP meet & greet packages can also be purchased, beginning Tuesday, January 12th at 10 AM local time. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets beginning Tuesday, January 12th at 10 AM local time. Tickets go on sale to the public beginning Friday, January 15th.

Kelly is touring in support of her debut album, Unbreakable Smile, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and includes the hits “Nobody Love” and “Should’ve Been Us.” Capitol Records will reissue Unbreakable Smile on January 29th with two additional tracks: Kelly’s current single, “Hollow,” which is already in the Top 25 at Pop radio and climbing on the Rhythmic chart, and a brand new song entitled “Something Beautiful.” The Target and iTunes editions will each contain two exclusive bonus tracks.

She is teaming up with the GRAMMY Foundation and Prizeo to fly one of her fans to New York City for a private Tea Time before her April 28th concert at The Beacon Theatre. Fans who visit and donate $5 to the GRAMMY Foundation will be entered to win. Donations larger than $5 include extra chances to win and rewards such as an exclusive Tori Kelly t-shirt and a signed guitar.

Kelly, who appears on the cover of the February issue of Seventeen magazine, is featured in Pepsi’s current advertising campaign. She is the first artist to record “Joy of Pepsi” since Britney Spears.
