Fresh off her main support slot on Florence + The Machine’s High As Hope tour, award-winning singer/songwriter Grace VanderWaal has announced her summer U.S. headline tour. The 23-city Ur So Beautiful Tour starts at the Railbird Festival in Lexington, KY on August 10 and will make stops in major cities across the U.S. including New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago. See full list of tour dates below. Tickets to solo headline dates of the Ur So Beautiful Tour go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 14 at 10 AM Local time.

Grace will be releasing her new single “Ur So Beautiful” on June 28. “Ur So Beautiful” follows the release of her moody track “Stray,” which was the first new music release since “Clearly” in early 2018.
“I’m so excited for everyone to finally get to hear “Ur So Beautiful,” I can’t wait to perform it,” says Grace. “This song is romantic but it’s also empowering — it can be directed at anything or anyone. It’s also kind of a note to self… a song to boost your confidence. Like, I know I’m beautiful… don’t I know that? I always try to hide it but then when I’m alone and am looking in my bathroom mirror, I know I’m beautiful. I’m good enough. I hope everyone feels that.”
Described as a “mature songwriter” and “pop natural” by The New York Times, Grace has notched an overwhelming amount of achievements in past three years as an artist, named one of Billboard’s 21 Under 21 for three consecutive years and featured in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in 2018 as the youngest member to ever make the list. Additional accolades include Billboard’s Women in Music 2017 Rising Star Award, Teen Choice Next Big Thing Award, and more. She released her best-selling EP Perfectly Imperfect in 2016 and her full-length album Just The Beginning in 2017. She has partnered with incredible brands like Kate Spade and Fender, who launched a Grace VanderWaal Signature ukulele last year, making her their youngest ever Signature artist. In 2018 Grace also completed a sold out headline tour and accompanied Imagine Dragons as the supporting act on their North American Evolve Tour.
Always evolving and keen on expanding her artistry, Grace most recently tackled the title role in Disney’sStargirl, a film adaptation of Jerry Spinelli’s best-selling young adult novel and one of the first original films to premiere on the company’s upcoming streaming service to be released early 2020.
