Sara Bareilles Coming to Xcel Energy Center Oct. 16
Grammy, Tony and Emmy award-nominated singer, songwriter, actress, and author Sara Bareilles today announced her Amidst The Chaos Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the 30-city tour will kick off Oct. 5 in Detroit, MI and make stops in Boston, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco and more, before wrapping Nov. 26 in Atlanta, GA. The tour will also include stops at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York City and the famous Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA. The tour brings Bareilles on the road in support of her fifth full-length album Amidst The Chaos which was just released last Friday to rave reviews - with Variety stating it "establishes that there's no one in contemporary pop better at flexing mezzo-soprano sensitivity and social empathy like a muscle. It's the perfect album for anyone who could use a little fierce snowflake pride." This marks her first album of original material since 2013.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, April 12 at 10 a.m. local time at LiveNation.com.
