Elle King Kicks Off Her 2022 Drunk And I Don’t Wanna Go Home Tour Tonight
(New York, NY/Nashville, TN) – RCA Records/Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville global entertainer Elle King is set to kick off her 2022 Drunk And I Don’t Wanna Go Home Tour this evening at the House of Blues in San Diego. The tour will hit 29 cities across the US and Canada, culminating at Los Angeles’ historic The Fonda on March 28th.
The tour follows King’s opening stint on Chris Stapleton’s “All-American Road Show” last year and will be her first headline tour in two years, with many of the dates already sold out. About King’s live performance, Variety wrote “…King churned the clotted cream of punkish country, raw R&B, crotchety rock and deep blues into rich, buttery musical drama…(she) belted, crooned, purred, sauntered and swaggered her way through a tautly rocking set…one thing became very clear: nearly every song was equally contagious, catty-cool, and hit-worthy.”
Last week King received a nomination at the 57th Annual ACM Awards for her hit single “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” with Miranda Lambert. The “rambunctious last call singalong” (Billboard), which recently surpassed 200 million on-demand streams and entered the top 10 at country radio, is nominated for Video Of The Year. This will mark King’s third career ACM Awards nomination, as she was previously nominated for Music Event of the Year for her collaboration with Dierks Bentley on “Different For Girls,” as well as her collaboration with Caylee Hammack, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Maren Morris and Tenille Townes for their cover of “Fooled Around and Fell in Love,” which they won.
