Kacey Musgraves will be bringing the sadcore to arenas early next year, as dates for an arena tour dubbed “Star-Crossed: Unveiled” in January and February 2022 have been unveiled.
The AEG Presents-promoted outing is described as a “limited” headlining tour and, with only 15 cities initially on the agenda, is likely to be augmented by more North American appearances at a later time.
It begins Jan. 19 at St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center and wraps up just a month later at L.A.’s Staples Center Feb. 20, with stops in-between in locales including Madison Square Garden Feb. 5 and her hometown Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Feb. 11.
King Princess and Muna will be the opening acts.
Fans can go to a special page to sign up for a presale code for tickets that go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m.American Express cardholders will also have access to a batch of tickets for an unusually long period of exclusivity — a full week — beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday and ending the following week at 10 p.m. on Sept. 8. The following day, Sept. 9, tickets finally go on sale to non-AmEx cardholders and non-presale code holder at 10 a.m. local time at www.kaceymusgraves.com/tour.
Last week Musgraves was announced as a first-time performer for the MTV Video Music Awards, being telecast from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center Sept. 12.
Her fourth album, “Star-Crossed,” comes out two days before the VMAs, on Sept. 10. The title track was released as the first teaser for the project and was followed last week by a music video for the single “Justified.”
