Riding high from the success of his self-titled album, award-winning star YUNGBLUD announced his 2023 YUNGBLUD – THE WORLD TOUR.

The star’s tour announcement follows the release of his 13-track studio album, “YUNGBLUD.” The project topped the charts in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
“Everything up to this moment has been a complete explosion of uncensored expression, where I just told the truth and sang about what I felt in that exact moment … my message is the same, it will always be; I will continue to be nothing but myself and encourage others to do the same. There is simply no other option,” YUNGLUD wrote on Instagram.
The 24-year-old rock artist celebrated the release with an epic 5-day in-store tour, performing in 9 cities across the country for a three-venues-in-one-night extravaganza. YUNGBLUD took the stage at some of Sunset Boulevard’s most iconic spots including The Roxy, Whiskey a Go-Go and The Viper Room.
“WE MADE FOOKIN HISTORY LAST NIGHT!!! 3 shows in 1 night on the sunset strip!!! played the new album in full and over 700,000 of you tuned in! thankyou for everythin … 🖤☠️🖤” YUNGBLUD shared via Instagram.
YUNGBLUD has yet to slow down, as he made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week to perform his newest single “Tissues.” Watch the electric performance below.
YUNGBLUD’s third studio album includes previously released hits “The Funeral,” “Don’t Feel Like Feeling Sad Today” and “Memories ft. Willow.” The project has already received great praise and was dropped alongside the official music video for “Tissues.”
Filmed in London, the high-energy video was directed by Charlie Sarsfield. A sample of “Close To Me” by The Cure, which the band’s lead singer Robert Smith approved directly, adds a unique oomph to the already infectious track.
“This is a new era for YUNGBLUD, I wanted to dance, I wanted to move and I wanted to really personify in the video what this song means. It’s happiness and it’s euphoria and it’s letting the fuck go,” said the star.
Watch the official music video for “Tissues” below.
Additionally, YUNGBLUD will grace the GRAMMY Museum on Wednesday, September 14 to take part of an intimate conversation moderated by Allison Hagendorf.
