The three-time Grammy Award winner and RIAA multi-platinum certified artist has announced the European leg of ‘The Special Tour’, which will begin on 17 February 2023 in Norway, and end in the United Kingdom.
The tour commemorates the release of her 2022 album ‘Special’, which includes the number one Billboard Hot 100 track, ‘About Damn Time’.
Lizzo’s fourth studio album dropped on 15 July 2022, has so far been received positively, reaching number one in Australia, France, Ireland, New Zealand, Portugal, the United Arab Emirates, and the UK.
