Charli XCX plots first U.S. headlining tour
English singer/songwriter Charli XCX will spend the end of the summer on the U.S. tour trail, performing behind her debut studio set, "True Romance."
The performer will begin the major-market headlining trek Aug. 30 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and continue for another 23 concerts. The month-long road trip features a couple of festival appearances, including a Sept. 1 performance at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival.
"I feel like it's gonna be the first time where I really stepped up production, really thought about the 'show' aspect of my live performance, which is really important to me," the songstress said in a recent interview with Billboard.
Charli XCX unveiled her major label debut entitled "True Romance" in April via Iamsound Records. The effort peaked at No. 5 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart.
The 20-year-old pop musician is already working on a sophomore set, according to her Billboard interview last Friday (6/14) at Bonnaroo Music Festival.
"Two months ago, I wanted to go to India and record it, and now I want to record it in France," the songstress said. "So I feel like nothing is definite -- like, I feel very all-over-the-place at the moment. But at the moment, my heart's set on going to France and recording it, but that was different two months ago, so who knows what's going to happen?"
