Two-time GRAMMY winner Tori Kelly will kick off 2020 with a tour in support of her new album, Inspired By True Events. The North American leg, produced by Live Nation, will kick off on January 28 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH. Audrey MiKa will open on all dates.

Tori will be bringing her full band for the outing, which follows her sold-out 2019 Acoustic Sessions tour. Produced by Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige), Inspired By True Events (Capitol/School Boy Records) marks a striking departure from the bright and breezy pop of Tori’s 2015 debut album, Unbreakable Smile. Like her 2018 passion project Hiding Place – winner of the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Gospel Album, with hit single “Never Alone” named Best Gospel Performance/Song – Inspired By True Events keeps centered on her warm yet powerful vocal presence and extraordinary range. But this time around, Tori brings even greater depth to her songwriting, examining events that recently shook her world – including her parents’ sudden separation, a tumultuous engagement that met with much disapproval and the death of her grandfather.

Tori says, “Playing these songs live is a reminder that everyone goes through these sorts of things, and we all need to know that we’re not alone. If I were to put out an album that didn’t talk about these personal stories, I would just be faking it and hiding from the truth. It turns out that the uncomfortable place was the most honest and true. It was right where I needed to be, and from there I could tell my story.”
