JoJo to Head Out on UK and European Headline Tour in 2022

13th November 2021 | Category: Concerts

JoJo has announced a huge headline tour for 2022 that will include a run of UK and European dates.

The R&B singer-songwriter released her capsule project ‘Trying Not to Think About It’ last month. She explained that ‘Trying Not To Think About It’ “is a result of feeling sooooo lost, scared, and confused at the end of 2020 – desperate to believe in/find my light once again”.

“Sometimes we feel like we’re the only ones. But we NEVER are alone in our darkness,” she continued. “If you listen, I hope this project makes you feel seen, validated, not crazy, and hopeful that you won’t feel bad forever. You’re more in control than you think.”

The project was followed up with a series of sold out intimate tour dates.

On the heels of both, JoJo has unveiled a heavily packed tour schedule for next year, starting in North America in February and taking in 15 UK and European shows throughout May.

The news comes after JoJo had planned to embark on a UK and European headline tour this year, but in January cancelled the dates due to coronavirus concerns.

“Performing live is one of my favourite parts of being an artist,” JoJo said in a statement. “It felt so right being back onstage for those dates in October, and I can’t wait to do it on a bigger scale in more cities next year!”

The ‘Leave (Get Out)’ singer initially sued her former label Blackground Records and its imprint Da Family Records over a dispute about her recording contract in 2009. JoJo was finally released from the contract in late 2013 after a settlement was finally agreed following another lawsuit, marking the end of a four-year spell in which the singer had been unable to release new music and her back catalogue was unavailable to stream or purchase.

JoJo, who has just released her latest solo album ‘Good To Know’, rerecorded her masters and re-released her first two albums in 2018 after starting her own company Clove Music to help “change the narrative”.

Back in May 2020, JoJo opened up about the support she received from Taylor Swift during the protracted legal battle she had with her former record label several years ago.

“I was literally being completely silenced,” she explained. “Taylor is in a different position in her career. I was really sidelined, and it was pretty hurtful.”
