Tiwa Savage has announced her first headlining tour of North America, “Water & Garri.”
The afrobeats star will be performing across 17 North American cities, starting in New York on May 15, and closing out in Toronto on June 19. Public tickets go on-sale Friday, March 25 at 10am local time.
Tiwa’s tour announcement follows up the 2021 release of her Water & Garri EP, which features the likes of Nas, Brandy, and Amaarae among others. The Water & Garri EP is Tiwa’s first project since 2020’s critically acclaimed album Celia.
Tiwa Savage comments, “It’s crazy to believe but this is actually my first North American tour! I’ve had so much love from my US fans so I’m super excited to come and play there.”
Savage has conquered the charts of her home country and carved out a huge reputation for herself globally. From being the first female to win Best African Act at the MTV European Music Awards to being crowned one of the Most Inspirational Women by US fashion magazine Vogue, there is no doubt that Savage is changing the global face of music and is a trailblazer of African music worldwide. In 2020, Savage made history once more, gracing the cover of Billboard’s first ever issue dedicated entirely to Africa and its broad music scene.
