Grammy-nominated, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Olivia Rodrigo, today announced her 2022 SOUR Tour in support of her Grammy-nominated record-breaking, RIAA Double Platinum Certified debut album, SOUR – out now on Geffen Records. Kicking off April 2nd at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA, the tour will visit more than 40 major cities across North America and Europe including two-night runs at Radio City Music Hall in New York, and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, before wrapping with two nights at Eventim Apollo in London, UK on July 6th and 7th. Special guests Gracie Abrams (April 2 – 23), Holly Humberstone (April 26 – May 25) and Baby Queen (June 11 – July 7) will join the Tour.
Fresh off her win as “New Artist of the Year” at the American Music Awards, the tour announcement caps off Rodrigo’s banner year, which, most recently saw her earn her seven nominations for the 2022 Grammy Awards including “Record Of The Year,” “Album Of The Year,” “Song Of The Year,” “Best New Artist,” “Best Pop Solo Performance,” “Best Pop Vocal Album,” and “Best Music Video,” making her the second youngest artist in Grammy history to score nods in each of the Big Four categories in the same year.
SOUR landed at the top of Spotify’s recently unveiled annual 2021 “Wrapped” campaign, which highlights the platform’s most streamed artists, songs, albums and podcasts. With over 1.1 billion streams, “driver’s license” was the top streamed song of 2021 on Spotify (both in the U.S. and worldwide), while Rodrigo’s “good 4 u” also landed in the top five most streamed songs list on Spotify, with SOUR earning the number one spot as the most globally streamed album. Rodrigo also earned Apple Music Awards for Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year.
With 295,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S., quickly achieving RIAA Gold certification in its first week. Upon its release, SOUR scored the most U.S. audio streams from a female debut album ever and broke the record for the most-streamed album in a week by a female artist in Spotify history with over 385M global steams. The stunning album from the 18-year-old multi-platinum artist produced two #1 songs “drivers license” (4x Platinum) and “good 4 u” (3x Platinum), the top 5 song “deja vu” (2x Platinum) and not to mention entered the charts at No. 1 in the U.K., Canada, Ireland, Norway, Netherlands, Sweden, Australia, and New Zealand. All 11 tracks from the album have landed in the top 30 of US top 100, making Rodrigo the first female artist, and the fourth act overall, to simultaneously chart 11 or more songs in the top 30.
