After becoming the dominant breakout pop star for practically all of 2021, Olivia Rodrigo is ready to embark on her first tour.
And the 33-date North American tour — kicking off April 2 in San Francisco — includes a Milwaukee stop. Rodrigo will perform at the Rave's 3,500-person-capacity Eagles Ballroom, on April 19.
Rodrigo, a star of Disney Channel's "Bizaardvark" and "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" on Disney+, practically became a household name at the start of 2021 with her runaway debut single "Drivers License." Just a few days after its release, the tender post-breakup ballad became the most-streamed song in a single week on streaming service Spotify. The 18-year-old became the youngest artist to have a song debut at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, where it remained at No. 1 for eight weeks.
But Rodrigo quickly proved she wouldn't be a one-hit wonder. The pop-punk-leaning "Good 4 U" debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in May, the same month her debut album, "Sour," was released. Featuring other hits including "Deja Vu" and "Traitor," "Sour" spent four weeks in the top spot on the Billboard 200.
Rodrigo is up for seven Grammys next month, including in all "big four" categories: album of the year, song of the year, record of the year and best new artist.
Tickets will cost $49.50 to $59.50. Fans can register for first access now through noon Tuesday at ticketmaster.com. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday at the box office and therave.com.
For the Milwaukee show, all attendees 12 and older will be required to show proof of vaccination or proof of medical exemption and negative COVID-19 test results taken within 48 hours before the show. Children ages 5 through 11 will be able to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test, also taken no earlier than 48 hours before the show.
Gracie Abrams will open for Rodrigo's Milwaukee date.
Rodrigo wasn't the only noteworthy artist to announce a tour Monday.
Acclaimed sister rock trio HAIM will play Milwaukee for the first time May 31, at the BMO Harris Pavilion at Maier Festival Park. Tickets for that show also go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, at the box office (200 N. Harbor Drive) and through Ticketmaster. Prices have yet to be announced.
Piet also talks concerts, local music and more on "TAP'd In" with Evan Rytlewski. Hear it at 8 a.m. Thursdays on WYMS-FM (88.9), or wherever you get your podcasts.
