Hayley Kiyoko Expands European Tour With Larger Venues & More Dates: 'I Am Beyond Humbled'
Hayley Kiyoko fans across the pond have plenty to celebrate, as all the stops in her first-ever European tour will now be hosted at larger venues to accommodate unprecedented audience demand.
A week after sharing dates for her Expectations European Tour -- her inaugural tour outside the United States, with stops in London, Paris, Munich, Copenhagen and Antwerp -- the “Curious” singer addressed a note to fans late Wednesday night that she would expand her tour to larger venues. Kiyoko also added another date in London, moving up her tour’s kick-off a day.
“I am beyond humbled by the love you’ve shown me for my Expectations European Tour,” Kiyoko gushes in the letter. “I’m happy to announce we’ve upgraded all venues to larger capacity, so I can see as many of you as I can.”
The upgrade comes as welcome news to Kiyoko's European fans. A minor uproar brewed among a subset of Lesbian Jesus devotees after the tour was originally announced, who lamented that ticket sales were bogged down by the usual culprits for hotly-buzzed tours. “I’m just disappointed the tour finally came and loads of us can’t go because of small venues and ticket resellers,” tweeted one Kiyoko stan.
The Expectations European Tour will commence in earnest at London’s O2 Academy Islington on October 23, 2018, and conclude November 7, 2018 at the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik.
Kiyoko is currently on the road with Panic at the Disco as part of their Pray for the Wicked tour, which will finish up on Aug. 18 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Expectations, Kiyoko’s debut album, vaulted to No. 12 in its first week on the Billboard 200, marking Kiyoko’s first appearance on the chart.
