GRAMMY Award winning recording artist SZA released her major label debut album CTRL in 2017. Cherished for its raw and honest lyrics, it landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart, No. 2 on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart and No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The album received five Grammy nominations in 2018 and more than half the songs on CTRL are currently certified multi-Platinum and Gold. CTRL remains on the Billboard 200 chart since its release in 2017 and holds the record for the longest run for any Black female artist’s debut album. In 2022 alone it sold over 600,000 units and is the 10th best-selling female album this year in the country and 50th best-selling album in 2022 overall.
In December of 2022, SZA released her highly-anticipated sophomore album, SOS, which debuted at No.1 following its release. The album includes features by Travis Scott, Don Toliver, Phoebe Bridgers and Ol’ Dirty Bastard; with production by CTRL hitmaking collaborators ThankGod4Cody and Carter Lang, alongside Jeff Bhasker, Rob Bisel, Benny Blanco, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Emile Haynie, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Jay Versace, and more.

The 2023 tour follows the success of SZA‘s second album, SOS, which earned the artist the record for the largest streaming week for an R&B album in the United States. The album also claimed ten non-consecutive weeks at No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart – the most among albums by women in seven years, following Adele‘s 25.
Tickets will be available starting with Live Nation presale on Wednesday, April 12 at 10am local time for the European leg of the tour and Thursday, April 13 at 10am local time for the North American stretch.
