Lizzo coming to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg

It's not every day that one of the most buzzed-about new artists of the year books a show at a club in our neck of the woods.

But today, Lizzo has decided to grace us with her presence.

The much-hyped rapper (and flautist!) behind the increasingly omnipresent Song of Summer contender Juice has booked a show at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg on Sept. 10. Ticket prices haven't been announced, but they go on sale Friday. Click here for details.

The tour announcement caps a busy few days for Lizzo, who dropped her debut album Cuz I Love You last week. She played what Variety called a "near flawless performance" at Coachella on Sunday, and numerous critics calling Cuz I Love You one of the year's best albums.

In case you missed it, we named Lizzo one of our top artists to watch in 2019 on a recent episode of the Times' Life of the Party podcast. Check it out above.
