Olivia Rodrigo Explains Her Decision to Not Headline Arenas on 'Sour' Tour

Olivia Rodrigo's fans are calling her team out for booking small venues for her international Sour tour after tickets sold out quickly.


In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, the 18-year-old pop star addressed her decision to not immediately headline arenas on her first world tour. "I don’t think I should skip any steps," she said.


With some tickets being resold for prices as high as $9,000, Rodrigo took to Instagram on Friday to thank her fans and assure everyone who didn’t get tickets that "there will be more tours in the future and I can’t wait to see you then!!!"



"SOUR TOUR is sold out!" she wrote. "Been waiting so long to perform these songs live. This is my very first tour and I’m so nervous but so excited to sing and dance the night away with you all! If you weren’t able to get tickets this time around there will be more tours in the future and I can’t wait to see you then!!! Thank u to all my incredible fans. Love u guys sm ahhh here we goooo!"


Rodrigo will hit the road for a 47-date tour that kicks off April 2 in San Francisco, before wrapping July 7 in London.
