Charli XCX Announces ‘True Romance’ U.S. Headlining Tour

British goth-popper Charli XCX has announced her first full-fledged headlining tour covering both the U.K. and U.S. The 29-stop, largely American tour will support her first debut full-length album, True Romance, released this past April.

Unlike performances opening for other acts, “this new tour is designed to bring people into her world.”
