Indie rock singer-songwriter Beth Ditto will embark on a North American tour in 2018. Ditto, the former frontwoman of dance-punk trio Gossip, will hit the road in continued support of her solo debut, Fake Sugar, which dropped earlier this year.
The headlining trek will kick off in Little Rock at Revolution Music Room on March 7 and run through the entirety of the month, hitting up major markets like Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver, before finishing out at The Showbox in Seattle on the March 29.
Fake Sugar debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart following its June 2017 release via Virgin Records. The 12-track collection, anchored by lead single “Fire,” showcases Ditto’s soulful, powerhouse vocals, which have drawn comparisons to the likes of Tina Turner, Etta James and Janis Joplin. The album also includes standout track, “Go Baby Go,” a tribute to Suicide’s Alan Vega, who passed away last year.
Beyond her own music, Ditto has been busy acting with a role in Gus Van Sant’s upcoming film “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Feet,” which will premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. She’s also found time in the past to design a plus-size clothing line with Jean Paul Gaultier and write a memoir.
Tickets for Ditto’s 2018 North American tour are on sale as of 10 a.m. local time on Friday, Dec. 15. Fans can purchase tickets for select dates here at AXS.com.
