Definitely not a bad idea, right? Olivia Rodrigo announced the Guts World Tour on Wednesday (Sept. 13) in support of her sophomore album — and she’s hitting arenas for the first time.
“Soooo excited to announce the GUTS world tour!!!!” the pop star captioned an Instagram post with the tour dates, which are set for 2024.
The 57-date trek — which is produced by Live Nation — kicks off Feb. 23 at Acrisure Arena in Palm Springs, Calif. She’ll perform in North America through April, where she’s scheduled a pair of dates for April 5 and 6 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, then heads overseas, beginning her international dates on April 30 in Dublin, Ireland. The pop star returns to the United States with a July 19 show in Philadelphia, and wraps her world tour with two concerts at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on Aug. 13 and 14.
The Breeders, PinkPantheress, Chappell Roan and Remi Wolf are scheduled to open on select dates.
If you don’t see your city on the list of tour dates yet, don’t despair. “Stay tuned for more dates coming soon!!!” Rodrigo teased in the caption of her announcement.
Fans are encouraged to register for tickets now through Sept. 17, 10 p.m. ET, on Ticketmaster.com in order to help ensure that tickets aren’t going to scalpers. After registration closes, fans will be randomly selected to receive codes that will give them access to tickets, which will allow them to purchase tickets Sept. 20-21. American Express card holders can also register for early access on Ticketmaster’s website. Amex’s early access begins Sept. 20 at 3 p.m. local time.
Rodrigo is also aiming to make her concert tickets affordable for fans. According to the press release, there will be a limited number of tickets available at a later date that will sell for $20 (plus taxes and fees) as part of the new Silver Star program. These tickets are required to be purchased in pairs, with a limit of two tickets per purchase. Though the seats will be next to each other, fans won’t know where they’re sitting until the pick up the tickets on the day of the concerts. Seats may be located on the floor, lower and upper levels, or limited view sections.
In addition to affordable tickets, the pop star is also doing good with the Guts World Tour. She’s launching the Fund 4 Good, her initiative which has a goal of “building an equitable and just future for all women and girls through direct support of community-based non-profits that champion girls’ education, support reproductive rights and prevent gender-based violence,” according to the tour’s press release. A portion of proceeds from all ticket sales will fund the initiative.
The 20-year-old singer-songwriter first teased the Guts World Tour in the lyric video for “Making the Bed,” which dropped Sept. 8, the same day as second album Guts. In the visual, next to the lyrics written on a sheet of notebook paper was what appeared to be a general admission concert ticket with the label “Guts World Tour.” The tour tease even noted the kickoff city — “Palm Springs, CA, USA.”
