“I’ve been so eager to connect with my fans this year, so it’s great to get back on the road,” H.E.R. said in a statement. “Being on stage fuels me as a musician and I can’t wait to feel that energy again!”
The Back of My Mind Tour’s 2022 leg follows the first leg in 2021, which ran from last September to October. Cities included were Santa Barbara, Brooklyn, Atlanta, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. Her opening act for the first leg was R&B singer Tone Smith.
H.E.R.’s solo tour will happen concurrently as she tours with rock band Coldplay as their opening act for their Music of the Spheres World Tour. Coldplay’s tour begins March 18 in Costa Rica and stands as H.E.R.’s first stadium tour. Music of the Spheres World Tour will run until October.
Before the tour kicks off, H.E.R. is up for six NAACP Image Award nominations on Feb. 26. She is also nominated for eight Grammy Awards this year, including Album of the Year for Back of My Mind, Song of the Year for “Fight For You,” and Best R&B Performance for “Damage.” The Grammys air live on April 3, a few nights before her tour begins.
