Lizzo's concert moves from Jannus Live to the Yuengling Center

Lizzo, the R&B and hip-hop artist, is on the rise. She sold out her fall tour, Cuz I Love You, Too. And now, due to overwhelming demand to see the Juice singer live, her performance originally scheduled for Sept. 10 at Jannus Live in downtown St. Petersburg has been moved to Tampa's Yuengling Center.

Additional tickets, starting at $41.25, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday through ticketmaster.com. Previously purchased tickets will be honored. Since Jannus is a general admission venue, tickets sold for the Jannus show will be on the floor at Yuengling.

The tour takes place in support of Lizzo's album, Cuz I Love You, that released in April and debuted at number six on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Rolled out in January, the single Juice became her first commercial hit, which she backed up with the title track in February and Tempo, featuring Missy Elliot, in March.

She's been making the rounds on television, including appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and a memorable performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, in which a backup dancer braided her hair.

An advocate for body positivity, Lizzo and her music celebrate self-love with swagger. Her backup dancers, the Big Grrls, are all plus size. New York Magazine and Allure have also featured her on their covers.
