Kehlani Celebrates the Start of the International ‘Blue Water Road’ Tour

6510

The Blue Water Road tour by two-time GRAMMY® Award nominee Kehlani began this weekend with an outstanding performance at the Atlantic Union Bank Pavilion in Portsmouth, Virginia, with special guests Rico Nasty and Destin Conrad. The multi-platinum singer sang songs from her most recent album, Blue Water Road, including the number-one hits “Can I,” “Toxic,” and “Distraction,” as well as “wish I never,” “everything,” and others.

Blue Water Road, a collection of mostly R&B and orchestral pop songs with spiritual, sexy, and emotional overtones that debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums in May 2022, marks a new chapter in Kehlani’s career. Kehlani’s third studio album, which features guest appearances from Blxst, Justin Bieber, Syd, Jessie Reyez, Ambré, and Thundercat, was created from songs that were originally intended to be bonus songs for the deluxe edition of their critically acclaimed 2020 album It Was Good Until It Wasn’t. The album also represents a metaphorical journey in the artist’s mind to new places.

Following performances in Atlanta, New York, Toronto, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and other cities around North America, Kehlani will conclude their North American leg in Honolulu, Hawaii on Friday, October 21st at Waikiki Shell. The tour is in support of their most recent album. After that, they will go to Europe, where the second part of their tour will begin on November 17 in Copenhagen, Denmark. From there, they will stop in Stockholm, Berlin, Paris, London, and other cities before wrapping up their trip on December 12 at Manchester, UK’s Victoria Warehouse.
