It’s about damn time.
After an exhilarating first leg of her tour— including the now infamous flute controversy— Lizzo is extending her trek and embarking on part two of her “Special Tour,” which she’s appropriately dubbed “The Special 2our” in 2023.
The run will take the three-time Grammy winner to 18 North American venues for 19 shows from March 15 through June 2.
Excitement for the tour is high too.
Rather than a typical muted announcement post, Lizzo tweeted, “SPECIAL 2OUR AINT OVER AND WE HIT THE JACKPOT CUS LATTO IS COMING W US!!”
Even better for fans, some tour tickets are going for as low as $25 before fees.
So, if you’re just as stoked for the Special 2our as Lizzo is, we’ve got everything you need to know below.

Lizzo support act
Lizzo’s got a partner in crime, and it is most definitely her good friend, 23-year-old Latto.
Here’s a quick refresher if you’re the rare Lizzo fanatic that isn’t familiar with Latto’s output.
Latto, aka Alyssa Michelle Stephens, broke into the mainstream with her 2020 single “Big Energy.” That year, she received a nomination for Best New Hip Hop Artist at the BET Hip Hop Awards but lost to Pop Smoke.
Since her breakthrough, she has spent her time opening for Lizzo on the first leg of the “Special Tour” and is now headed back for round two.
You can hear the catchy, NSFW “Big Energy” with a familar beat you may recognize from the ’80s and Mariah Carey hits below.
While Lizzo obviously drops indisputable bangers “Good As Hell,” “Truth Hurts,” and “Juice” at every show, she also doesn’t play it completely safe.
As a true artist, Lizzo tweaks her setlists just slightly at every concert.
If you want to see what she’s played at recent gigs— including a cover of Lauryn Hill’s classic “Doo Wop (That Thing)”— click here to get a better idea of the show you’ll be treated to on the “Special 2our.”
