You now have two chances to see the quickly rising singer/rapper. Plus: upcoming concerts from Tame Impala, Kurt Vile, the full CMW lineup and more
When Lizzo announced her headlining show for Danforth Music Hall (which is coming up on May 16), her new album, Cuz I Love You, had not yet dropped. Still, we could feel her rise coming – she’s “one ad placement or celebrity endorsement away from being huge,” we wrote. “Just wait.”
Now the album is out – a likeable collection of soul songs, hip-hop bangers and empowerment anthems – and her entire tour has sold out. So she’s announced a second leg. If you didn’t get tickets to see her at the Danforth, you have another chance – she’ll be at Rebel on September 19.
It feels like her songs of self-love (even if she doesn’t have much love for critics, as a recent tweet attests) will take her even higher next time – to theatres, or even arenas. So if you want to see her ridiculously fun and empowering live show, do it now.
