CHARLI XCX Announces North American Headline Tour Which Kicks Off In Las Vegas

After two smash performances on the BBC Radio 1 Dance stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals overseas last week, the 21-year-old Charlotte Aitchison (aka Charli XCX) reveals the revised routing for her first ever proper North American headline tour—which includes a handful of new dates in Seattle and Washington, DC. All previously purchased tickets will be honoured and most dates are available now for purchase viahttp://tixx1.artistarena.com/charlixcx/.

Charli confesses, “I’m excited. I think these shows are going to be the best shows I’ve ever done. I’ve got THAT feeling. It’s weird.” And will be taking out support acts on select dates including: LA-based indie rock band Kitten(Elektra Records), LIZ (Mad Decent), and UK-based producer and DJ, TWIN iDol, whom she collaborated with on a vibey remix of UK/Basque-based Crystal Fighters’ “Wave” out on September 23rd via Beatport and October 8th on all other digital service providers.

So far, it’s been a dashing year for indie icon Charli XCX—releasing her breakthrough debut album “TRUE ROMANCE” (via IAMSOUND) to rave reviews, including a ‘Best New Music’ mark from Pitchfork; having written her first double-platinum selling track, ‘I Love It’ for Swedish duo Icona Pop, and now a major touring schedule across both sides of the pond (see full itinerary below). On top of that, Charli is in the studio writing and working on her sophomore album, so stay tuned for more music soon!

Charli Xcx Confirmed To Support Paramore On Their UK Arena Tour September 2013

21-year-old Charlotte Aitchison aka Charli XCX is pleased to announce that she’ll be supporting US rock trio Paramore on their upcoming UK arena headline tour in September, which will include two dates at London’s Wembley Arena. Unfortunately, this means that Charli has had to postpone her upcoming US September headline tour until October/November.

Charli commented: “I’m very happy to have been asked to support Paramore on their UK tour. I’ve never really done shows in the UK outside of London before so it’s going to be something different and kind of scary for me. Of course I am really, truly so so sorry to everyone who got tickets to my US shows, as now I will have to reschedule those dates and I hate the fact that I will have let lots of people down. It’s weird, I always feel strangely at home when I play shows in America and the fans I have out there are literally the best, most killer fans in the world. I’m upset that you guys are going to be disappointed and annoyed at me, as I really did have big things planned for this tour, so it’s very sad. I’m working really hard to reschedule the dates right now and all I can promise you is that the shows will be even bigger and better than anything I’ve ever done before.”
