Jason Derulo Announces First U.S. Headlining Tour: Exclusive
Jason Derulo will continue the successful campaign behind new album Talk Dirty by wiggling across the States on his first U.S. headlining tour this fall, Billboard can exclusively confirm. The 13-date trek kicks off on Oct. 15 in Royal Oak, Mich.
Derulo has opened for artists like Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas over the course of his career, and headlined multiple tours internationally. However, the recent success of his singles "The Other Side," "Talk Dirty" and "Wiggle" -- all of which have entered the Top 20 of the Hot 100 chart over the past year -- has helped set up his debut headlining run in the States.
"My U.S. tour is finally here," Derulo tells Billboard. "I've been traveling the world for this album for almost a year, and for the Talk Dirty tour to be hitting U.S. soil gives my a real sense of completion and liberation."
On Sunday night (Aug. 10), Derulo performed a medley of "Wiggle" and "Talk Dirty" at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, where he won the Choice Single Male award. The pop singer-songwriter also appeared on "Nightline" recently to discuss, among other things, his career, which began with the No. 1 hit "Whatcha Say" in 2009. Talk Dirty, which was released in April, has sold 164,000 copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Becky G and Wallpaper. will serve as support on Derulo's upcoming tour. Wallpaper.'s Ricky Reed produced "Talk Dirty" and co-produced "Wiggle," who were both Top 5 hits for Derulo.
