Jessie Reyez will embark on her Before Love Came to Kill Us tour this spring, kicking off the North American leg on May 23rd, following her debut Coachella performance. The tour will be in support of Reyez’ upcoming debut album of the same name, due out March 27th Fmly and Island Records.
The 25-date run will take Reyez through Atlanta, Miami, Denver, Toronto, and more before a final show at Terminal 5 in New York on July 7th.
Fan presale tickets will become available on Tuesday, February 18th, at noon EST, including a Community presale, where fans in North America can text 416-639-1868 for first access to tickets. General tickets go on sale Friday, February 21st, at 10 a.m. local time.
Reyez’s 2018 EP, Being Human in Public, was nominated at the 2020 Grammys for Best Urban Contemporary Album, losing to Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You.
So far, she’s shared two singles from the upcoming album, the uplifting “Love in the Dark” and the harrowing “Far Away,” the latter of which is about her experiences as a migrant and the fear of separation from her family. (She’s explored the topic a number of times in her music, collaborating with the rapper 6LACK on the immigrant anthem “Imported.”)
