Today, 3x GRAMMY® and Emmy Award-winning, RIAA multi-platinum certified artist Lizzo has announced the second North American leg of her wildly successful 2022 tour. The Special 2our kicks off Friday, April 21st in Knoxville, TN at Thompson-Boling Arena. Coming off her Emmy Award win for Outstanding Competition Program and her VMAs Video for Good Award for “About Damn Time” (which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and the top 10 in 12 other countries), she will be performing in 17 cities across North America next year, including Pittsburgh, PA, at PPG Paints Arena on May 13, 2023.
Her most recent album Special peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart, hailed by Rolling Stone as “the most unabashedly joyous, sonically diverse, and emotionally profound album put out by a major label since Beyonce’s Lemonade.”
Produced by Live Nation, the 17-date second leg of the tour continues through St. Louis, MO; Montreal, QC; Chicago, IL; and more before wrapping up on Friday, June 2, 2023, at Acrisure Arena in Palm Desert, CA. Full routing can be found below. Public on sale for the second leg dates will begin Friday, November 18 at 10 am at lizzomusic.com.
