After releasing buzz single ‘Accelerate’ and announcing she’ll be performing a new song with Demi Lovato at the Billboard Music Awards, Xtina announced she’s been working on a tour.
The Liberation Tour will begin its fall run starting on September 25 in Hollywood, Florida before returning to Florida in mid-November to wrap things up. It's a short run, which isn't a surprise. The surprise remains with the announced opening act who is none other that Outkast's Big Boi.
How this happened, we have yet to find out. Could a collaboration be in the works? I hope not. Big Boi doesn't deserve that. With 'Accelerate' accelerating off the charts, her album is in more than a little bit of trouble. In an interview Christina did with Billboard, she mentions being more influenced by hip-hop & R&B this time around. This is nothing new for her, so I don't know how much of a rebirth this is.
June 15 is the release date for 'Liberation' and three tracks have been released so far; 'Accelerate' featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz, 'Twice' and 'Fall In Line' featuring Demi Lovato. The latter she'll be performing with Lovato at the Billboard Music Awards.
