Olivia Rodrigo will play a show in Milwaukee as part of her first tour in support of her new album, “Sour.”
Olivia Rodrigo is gearing up for her first tour after dominating the pop scene for nearly the entire year of 2021.
Milwaukee will be a stop on the 33-date North American tour, which gets underway on April 2 in San Francisco. On April 19, Rodrigo will perform in the Eagles Ballroom at the Rave, which can hold 3,500 people.
With her debut single “Drivers License,” Disney Channel star and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney+ star Rodrigo practically became a household name at the beginning of the year. One week after its release, the heartbreaking post-breakup ballad was streaming at a record high on the music-streaming platform Spotify. When the 18-year-song old’s debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, it remained there for eight weeks.
But Rodrigo proved that she wasn’t just a one-hit wonder in a short period of time. When her debut album, “Sour,” was released in May, “Good 4 U” debuted at the top of the Hot 100. “Sour,” which also featured the No. 1 singles “Deja Vu” and “Traitor,” spent four weeks atop the Billboard 200 chart.
All four of the “big four” categories—album of the year, song of the year, record of the year, and best new artist—are open to Rodrigo at the Grammys next month.
A ticket will run you between $49.50 and $59.50. Now through noon on Tuesday, fans can register for first access to the tickets at ticketmaster.com. The general public will be able to purchase tickets starting at 10 a.m. on Friday at the box office and therave.com.com.
All 12 and older attendees at the Milwaukee show will be required to show proof of vaccination or medical exemption and negative COVID-19 test results taken within 48 hours prior to the show. Vaccination records or a negative COVID-19 test must be provided by children between the ages of 5 and 11 no later than 48 hours prior to the show.
An opening act has been announced for Rodrigo’s Milwaukee show.
On Monday, a number of notable artists announced tour dates, including Rodrigo.
On May 31, the BMO Harris Pavilion at Maier Festival Park will host the critically acclaimed sister rock trio HAIM for the first time ever. As of Friday morning, tickets for that show will be available at the box office (200 N. Harbor Drive) and on Ticketmaster. Prices are still being worked out.
