Yesterday afternoon, FKA Twig revealed plans for a world tour beginning next month in Los Angeles. After fulfilling her duties in California on May 7th, she’ll book it for New York for the last time on North American soil. Then it’s off to Berlin, London, Paris, and Barcelona for the European leg before she wraps up her tour schedule in the unlikeliest of locales: Hobart, Tasmania. It’s all written in plain English; peep the graphics displayed on her Twitter down below.
In reality, the New York stop calls for a double-booking, as FKA Twigs will be asked to make consecutive appearances at this year’s Red Bull Music Festival, the surviving element from the company’s numerous foreclosures. Earlier this month, Red Bull announced that both its academy and radio program would be phased out after 21 years of service.
The gig in Barcelona was born out of similar circumstances, as a central element to the city’s ever-expanding “Primavera Sound” festival. The 2019 lineup will also boast Cardi B, J Balvin, Erykah Badu, Future, Janelle Monáe, Nas, Pusha-T, 070 Shake, James Blake, Danny Brown, Kali Uchis, slowthai, Ivy Queen, Mura Masa, Rico Nasty, Gangsta Boo, and Tierra Whack in prominent spots.
