Lizzo

Days after releasing her Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records debut albumCUZ I LOVE YOU, Lizzo has announced her fall North American tour, “Cuz I Love You Too.”

Produced by Live Nation, “Cuz I Love You Too” dates begin July 18th at Edgefield in Portland, OR and will make stops in Toronto, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and more before wrapping October 27th at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA.

Lizzo will play Red Hat Amphitheater Raleigh on Friday 9/13 and The Fillmore Charlotte on Sunday 9/15.  Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, April 26th at 12pm local time at LiveNation.com.

“Cuz I Love You Tour” kicks off this week, April 22nd at The Warfield in San Francisco, CA. All dates on the North American headline trek are sold out, including a tour-closing headline date at New York City’s Terminal 5 set for May 23rd. Support throughout comes from Atlantic Records labelmate Tayla Parx. For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.lizzomusic.com/tour.

CUZ I LOVE YOU arrived to critical acclaim on Friday, April 19th with Variety declaring, “Her debut's sexy, smart, scuffed-up R&B establishes Lizzo as an immediate star.”Esquire affirmed, “ ’You’ reveals another bullet point on her already spectacular resume: Lizzo can sing. Boy, can she sing. Her rich, raw vocal is on display all across the LP, but it’s especially striking on affecting ballads like the blow-your-hair-back title track, produced by X Ambassadors, or the throbbing “Jerome,” which sees her pleading with a suitor who leaves her wanting to come back “when you’re grown.” (“Poor little baby,” she chides. “Who told you that you stood a chance with this royalty?”)”

Lizzo has marked the arrival of CUZ I LOVE YOU with a number of high profile TV appearances, including performances on the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show, NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and TODAY, and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and HBO’s 2 Dope Queens, as well as visits to Comedy Centrals The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Upcoming appearances include E! News’ Busy Tonight, set for April 22nd.

In addition, Lizzo has been featured in a remarkable range of worldwide media outlets and national publications, spanning BillboardTIMEEntertainment Weekly and Playboy to the covers of New York Magazine's Spring Fashion Issue, Allure, and  more. 

Yesterday, Lizzo wrapped up an epic 2-weekend run at Indio, CA’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival earning her further acclaim. “Lizzo has quickly cemented herself as one of 2019’s preeminent pop figures,” wrote Consequence of Sound. “(Her) set only spanned 12 songs, but every track got the crowd grooving more than the last. The show attracted the most tightly packed audience in the Mojave tent across the whole weekend… Lizzo’s energy went unmatched, and, like she proclaimed at the beginning of her set, it’s likely that she will be headlining festivals in the years to come — especially if she keeps up her tempo.”

Clocking in at four minutes, 11 seconds and 777 words, lead single/title track “The Search” gives fans plenty to unpack, as NF lays bare his psyche, revealing some of the darker corners he’s found himself in and mapping out the ambitious quest that lies ahead. View the official video, co-directed by Patrick Tohill and NFHERE.

I’ve been searchin

What does that mean Nate? I’ve been learnin

Grabbin my keepsakes

Leavin my burdens

Well I brought a few with me I’m not perfect

Lookin at the view like this concerns me…

Cold world out there kids grab your coats

Been a minute I know now I’m back to roam

Looking for the antidote

To crack the code

The Search is NF’s fourth full-length album. It follows the independently released Perception (NF Real Music/Caroline), which took the music industry by surprise when fans propelled it to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard200 upon its release. Also topping Billboard’s Top Rap Albums and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, Perception was the ultimate underdog story of 2017, as chronicled by The New York TimesRolling Stone and Forbes, with the latter noting, “NF’s success speaks to what can be done these days outside of the traditional system.”

Now certified Platinum in the U.S., Perception has earned more than two million album equivalent units worldwide while cumulative streams have surpassed 3.5 billion. Singles like “Let You Down” – 3x Platinum and a No. 1 Pop radio hit in the U.S., and certified Platinum or higher in seven additional countries – “Lie” and “If You Want Love” further expanded NF’s fanbase, paving the way for his sold-out, 87-date 2018 Perception World tour of North America and Europe, numerous festival appearances and the direct support slot on Logic’s Bobby Tarantino Vs Everybody arena tour.

Dropkick Murphys will kick off fall 2019 with a coast-to-coast tour featuring Clutch, launching September 20 at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield, MA. Joined by special guests Amigo The Devil and more to be announced, the tour is playing Red Hat Amphitheater Raleigh on 9/24 and Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre on 9/25. Tickets go on sale Thursday, April 18 at LiveNation.com and via the Live Nation app.

Since forming in 1996, Boston’s Dropkick Murphys have sold a staggering 7 million albums worldwide, with 2005’sThe Warrior’s Code achieving an RIAA Gold certification and its smash single “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” nearing double platinum and appearing during a key moment of Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning The Departed. They’ve hosted sold out concerts at most of the city’s landmarks, including Fenway Park, TD Garden, the Boston Pops, and even the last voyage of the USS Constitution. Dropkick Murphys­ are touring in support of their 11 Short Stories Of Pain & Glory album, released through the band's own Born & Bred Records in 2017. The album debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and was the #1 independently released album. There's a feeling of purpose throughout the album, influenced by the band's work with The Claddagh Fund, a charity the band established in 2009 to help support addiction recovery as well as children's and veterans' organizations.

Maryland rockers Clutch have been pushing the boundaries of heavy rock music since the 4 original members got together in high school. Having been tagged hard rock, blues rock, southern stoner rock and alternative metal by media and fans across the world it is safe to say one thing…“What you see is what you get” and what you get is a musical force that has been best described as the quintessential American Rock Band.  Clutch quickly became known for their relentless touring schedules, playing shows from whiskey stained 2 door venues in the hills of West Virginia to the iconic Brixton Academy in the UK, and are currently touring in support of their 12th album Book Of Bad Decisions.
