– Arlo Parks
British singer/songwriter and poet extraordinaire Arlo Parks has unveiled the initial routing for her first U.S. tour ever, starting with two nights in Brooklyn in September at Baby’s All Right and Music Hall of Williamsburg.
She announced the news Tuesday after starting the week off by performing the tune “Black Dog” from her debut album on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
Before COVID-19 hit, Parks was supposed to tour the U.S. in May and June 2020 in support of Hayley Williams.
Now Parks has lined up a run of headline dates of her own for fall 2021. Although the schedule just has four dates so far – two on the East Coast and two on the West – Parks promises that more gigs are to come.
“I’m super stoked to announce some US dates for when all is safe & peaceful ? The Baby’s All Right show is already sold out from last spring but expect more dates my American kings – ily & I’m looking forward to meeting you all – smash the link for ticks! https://arloparks.ffm.to/collapsedinsunbeams ” Parks tweeted March 2. Tickets are available now.
Parks released her debut album, Collapsed in Sunbeams, in late January to critical acclaim, with praise for her vulnerable songwriting and her blend of indie pop, folk and soul, along with spoken word poetry.
Her recent accolades include being named the “One to Watch” by AIM Independent Music Awards and BBC Music Introducing Artist of the Year for 2020. She and her manager Ali Raymond were named Breakthrough Artist & Manager by the Music Managers Forum. In January Apple Music named Parks as the latest artist for its Up Next program. She also stars in the Amazon exclusive “Tonight With Arlo Parks,” a variety show special with special guests Romy of The xx, Dave Okuu and Glass Animals.
Fans can catch Parks performing a livestream on March 4 via BandsInTownPlus, featuring an exclusive set from London and a live Q&A.
