Grace VanderWaal Announces Ur So Beautiful Headlining Tour
Grace VanderWaal has announced her Ur So Beautiful headlining tour. The 23-city Ur So Beautiful Tour starts at the Railbird Festival in Lexington, Ky. on Aug. 10 and will make stops in major cities across the U.S. including New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago.
The tour will follow the release of VanderWaal’s latest single “Ur So Beautiful” due out on June 28. Earlier this year, VanderWaal also released single “Stay.”
"I'm so excited for everyone to finally get to hear 'Ur So Beautiful,' I can't wait to perform it," said VanderWaal in a release. “This song is romantic but it’s also empowering — it can be directed at anything or anyone. It’s also kind of a note to self... a song to boost your confidence. Like, I know I’m beautiful... don’t I know that? I always try to hide it but then when I’m alone and am looking in my bathroom mirror, I know I’m beautiful. I’m good enough. I hope everyone feels that."
In the past three years as an artist, VanderWaal has been named one of Billboard’s 21 Under 21 for three consecutive years and featured in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in 2018 as the youngest member to ever make the list. Additional accolades include Billboard’s Women in Music 2017 Rising Star Award, Teen Choice Next Big Thing Award and more. She released her best-selling EP Perfectly Imperfect in 2016 and her full-length album Just The Beginning in 2017.
In 2018 Grace also completed a sold-out headline tour and accompanied Imagine Dragons as the supporting act on their North American Evolve Tour.
VanderWaal most recently tackled the title role in Disney’s Stargirl, a film adaptation of Jerry Spinelli’s best-selling young adult novel and one of the first original films to premiere on the company’s upcoming streaming service to be released early 2020.
