With the release of her highly-anticipated new album Betty, on Friday, pop singer/songwriter Betty Who announces her 2019 headline tour – Betty Who: the tour, presented by lululemon. The tour will bring the new album to life on the stage in Betty’s trademark high energy, dazzling shows.

  

Kicking off May 7 in Santa Cruz, Betty will hit 20+ cities including a stop in St. Louis at Delmar Hall on May 18. Tickets for the tour are on sale now. VIP packages will also be available for all dates. Check www.bettywhomusic.com for tour dates and all details.

As the Australian pop queen walked into her first independent album, she had a single mandate: "I am going to be the most me I can be." That is, in part, why her third full-length statement is simply called Betty. It's pure her: a brilliant swirl of pop—'80s, Y2K, and hyper-modern strains—that encompasses everything from intimate artful fare to darkly sexy bangers to full-on wedding reception shout-alongs. What's more, these are songs about grown-woman emotions delivered by someone who rediscovered the drive and verve that fueled her rise through music in the first place. As Betty says, "It all came back to joy."

 

“All I could think when I was making this record was how excited I am to play it live. I can’t wait to get out and make this tour bigger and better than it has ever been before and see all of your faces out on the road,” says Betty of the tour.

 

Betty, who headlined St. Louis PrideFest 2014, has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will go to support The Trevor Project, and their work providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for LGBTQ youth. The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning) young people.

 

Betty recently wrapped her support act run on Panic! at the Disco’s Pray For The Wicked Tour, which took her across 20+ North American dates. Her last show was Thursday, February 14 in Anaheim, CA. 

 

Immediately following the release of her album – which is available everywhere now – Betty will join Kesha on her Kesha Cruise: Kesha’s Weird & Wonderful Rainbow Ride from February 17-21 in the Bahamas. 

 

Entertainment Weekly hails the Betty as “the best she’s been since” the 2012 release of her infectious song “Somebody Loves You.” The milestone album’s first single “Between You & Me” was released last November and its current single “I Remember” in January and have earned critical acclaim from numerous press outlets such as Rolling StoneNYLONIdolatorDuJour and L’Officiel USA. Betty officially unveiled the album’s tracklisting last week.
