JoJo – Good To Know Tour – CANCELLED

April 22 @ 8:00 pm - April 23 @ 12:00 am
Cat’s Cradle, 300 E Main St.
Carrboro, NC 27510 United States

Every ticket purchased online for JoJo includes your choice of a CD or digital copy of the new album, Good To Know, released in spring 2020. You’ll receive instructions via email on how to redeem your album within 7 days of your ticket purchase. US/CAN residents only, offer not valid on resale tickets. JoJo is a chart-topping, award-winning singer, songwriter, and actress who, at just 28 years old, is already a veteran of the music industry – but she is ready to write her next chapter. Now signed to Warner Records through a joint venture with her own Clover Music, JoJo has begun with new releases “Joanna” and the Doc McKinney-produced “Sabotage (feat. CHIKA),” and is looking ahead to her new album to come in spring 2020. Having released her self-titled debut album when she was just 13, JoJo’s breakout smash “Leave (Get Out)” made JoJo the youngest-ever solo artist to have a debut #1 single in the U.S. and to be nominated for “Best New Artist” at the MTV Video Music Awards. The album went on to sell over four million copies and became the singer’s first Platinum record, which she followed with a string of additional hits, most notably the Top 3 single “Too Little Too Late” from sophomore album The High Road. In 2016, JoJo made a heralded return to music with her first new album in 10 years, Mad Love. – debuting Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 and earning her unanimous critical acclaim from the likes of TIME, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Cosmo, Entertainment Weekly and more. Last year, JoJo re-recorded and re-released her first two albums (JoJo and The High Road) under her own label Clover Music, after years of legal battles with her former label that prevented the albums from existing on digital platforms. She has also pushed herself outside the confines of genre, recently collaborating with artists ranging from PJ Morton and Jacob Collier to Tank on his latest “Somebody Else.” Links: Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Spotify | YouTube | Apple Music
