Tinashe Announces Joyride World Tour

Tinashe Announces Joyride World Tour

Highly anticipated sophomore album Joyride due out later this year

WEDNESDAY JANUARY 13, 2016 – Today acclaimed R&B sensation TINASHE has announced she will be returning to our shores in May as part of her Joyride World Tour.

The stunning 22-year-old singer, songwriter and performer will be bringing her edgy R&B to Auckland’s Powerstation on Friday May 20.

Tickets go on sale this Monday, January 18 at 10am.

The singer-songwriter, dancer and producer, is quickly making a name for herself as a live performer. After releasing her 2014 critically lauded debut album, Aquarius, Tinashe toured relentlessly, taking her live show around the globe several times over, including sold-out shows across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

Tinashe spent the northern summer of 2015 touring arenas and amphitheaters on Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint Tour and ended 2015 touring stadiums and arenas in South America with Katy Perry. Known for her intense, captivating and energetic command of the stage, Tinashe is quickly becoming one of the most celebrated live performers today.

The new tour takes its name from Tinashe’s upcoming sophomore album, Joyride. The album itself is a direct result of over a year on the road, with the energy and thrill of Tinashe's show weaved directly into the album’s in-your-face DNA.

The album is set for release later this year fresh off the heels of multi-format hit single ‘Player’ featuring Chris Brown, previously shared track ‘Party Favors’ featuring Young Thug and the international hit ‘All My Friends’ with Snakehips and Chance The Rapper. The album features Tinashe’s own production work, along with collaborations with the likes of Joel Compass, Nic Nac, Max Martin, LULOU and Alex Purple, and Metro Boomin, while also reunited her with Boi-1da and Devonté Hynes.

Already, anticipation is at a fever pitch, with Tinashe recently covering Dazed Magazine’s current Winter 2015 issue and Essential Homme’s October/November 2015 issue, as well as attention from Vogue, Nylon, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Playboy and much more.

With more information on the album to be announced soon, 2016 is shaping up to be Tinashe’s biggest year yet.
