Rodrigo takes new album ‘Guts’ on world tour

Olivia Rodrigo is taking her new album “Guts” for a world tour in her fast-rising career in the early months of next year.

The trek, which will launch in California in February and stretches across North America for six weeks before moving to Europe, then returns to North America in May before concluding in Rodrigo’s home of Los Angeles on 14 August.

Variety reports the tour features an inspired selection of opening acts, all of them female and three of them young: British dance-pop singer PinkPantheress; L.A.-based pop singer Chappell Roan, whose debut album is out next week; California pop-rock singer Remi Wolf on all European dates; and veteran alt-rock act the Breeders, led by ex-Pixies singer Kim Deal, who are best known for the string of radio and video hits stemming from their 1993 album “Last Splash.”

The latter choice seems unusual but is actually on brand for ‘Rodrigo: During Rodrigo’s’ debut tour last year, the singer covered the Veruca Salt song “Seether,” from the same era, which she told audiences “came out before I was born” but her mom introduced her to.

Rodrigo performed “Vampire” and “Get Him Back!” at MTV’s Video Music Awards on Tuesday night, following Lil Wayne as the second performer of the evening.

It was her second-ever appearance at the show as Rodrigo made her VMAs debut in 2021 when she performed her Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit “Good 4 U.”

“Guts” was released to high acclaim on 8 September via Geffen Records and was preceded by two top 10 singles, “Vampire” and “Bad Idea Right?” “Vampire” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Rodrigo the youngest artist to debut three No. 1 hits on the chart behind “Drivers License” and “Good 4 U.”

In an interview with Capital FM in England, Rodrigo said she wrote many of the songs on “Guts” with the concept of an accompanying tour “in mind.”

Rodrigo last toured North America and Europe in support of her debut album “Sour” in 2022.
