Today, Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist H.E.R. announced a new leg of her wildly successful 2021 BACK OF MY MIND tour. The 19-city tour will bring the “emotionally searing instrumentalist” (Billboard) across the U.S. beginning April 8*, in Honolulu, HI at the Waikiki Shell. The tour will make stops in Los Angeles, Austin, New Orleans, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Charlotte, Jacksonville, and more, with the final stop in Charlotte, NC on June 19 (see full itinerary below). Tickets for the BACK OF MY MIND tour will go on sale Friday, February 25 at 10am Local on Ticketmaster.com.
The tour dates come on the heels of H.E.R.’s previously announced supporting dates, where she will join Coldplay as part of their Music of the Spheres World Tour, her first-ever time playing stadiums.
“I’ve been so eager to connect with my fans this year, so it’s great to get back on the road. Being on stage fuels me as a musician and I can’t wait to feel that energy again!”, said H.E.R. in anticipation of the tour.
H.E.R. is continuing her dominance in 2022 and currently leads the NAACP Image Awards (February 26/BET) music categories with six nominations, including Outstanding Album and Outstanding Soul/R&B Song for “Damage.” On March 2, she will receive the American Express Impact Award at Billboard’s Women in Music event in Los Angeles. She will also add acting to her resume when she joins the all-star cast of “The Color Purple” musical film adaptation as ‘Squeak’ and was named Global Ambassador for L’Oréal Paris.
H.E.R. kicked off 2021 in the most stellar of ways by winning two Grammy Awards – Song of the Year for “I Can’t Breathe” and Best R&B Song for her contribution to Robert Glasper’s “Better Than I Imagined,” plus an Academy Award for her powerful song “Fight For You” from the Warner Bros. Pictures’ film Judas and the Black Messiah. Previous Grammy wins include Best R&B Album (H.E.R.) and Best R&B Performance (“Best Part” featuring Daniel Caesar) and a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Female Artist, among additional awards and honors.
Named Best Female R&B/Pop Artist at the 2021 BET Awards, H.E.R. closed out the year earning an astonishing 8 Grammy nominations (tied for the most nominated female artist this year), including Song of the Year for “Fight For You,” and Album of the Year for her “dazzling debut” (NME) Back of My Mind, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart and is now RIAA-certified Gold.
