If life is all about timing, Khalid is doing just fine.
On the same day the American Teen was nominated for five Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, Khalid announced his biggest tour to date, a 20-date trek dubbed The Roxy Tour.
Khalid's summer tour kicks off on May 1 with a performance at Theatre Of The Clouds at Moda Center in Portland, OR and finishes up on June 7 at Red Hat Amphitheatre in Raleigh, NC. Tickets for the tour go on sale this Saturday, Dec. 2; click here to find tickets to select dates on AXS.com.
The tour announcement is the latest accomplishment for the breakout 19-year-old Texas native. Following the release of his hit album American Teen in March, Khalid has teamed with other rising stars like Marshmello (on "Silence") and DJDS (on "Why Don't You Come On"). He was also named Best New Artist at the VMAs in August and scored five Grammy nominations this morning: Best New Artist, Song of the Year and Best Music Video for his Logic collaboration "1-800-273-8255," Best Urban Contemporary Album for American Teen and Best R&B Song for "Location."
As an added bonus, The Roxy Tour will donate $1 from every ticket sold to local animal shelters (the tour is named for Khalid's newly adopted pit bull mix).
