The tour kicks off in Manchester’s Club Academy on the October 24th and see’s Hayley play nine dates all over Europe, including a show at London’s O2 Islington Academy on October 26th.

The announcement comes straight off the back of Hayley’s surprise appearance on stage with Taylor Swift last Thursday at the iconic Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA during Swift’s Reputation Tour.

Since April, Hayley has been relentlessly touring across North America with a successful headline run that included dazzling performances at Coachella and NYC’s historic Irving Plaza, and is currently supporting Panic! At The Disco on their North America tour. Hayley recently joined Brendon Urie on stage during the Toronto leg of the tour to perform a duet of the track “GIRLS/GIRLS/BOYS”.

Hayley has been taking #20GAYTEEN by storm with her debut album EXPECTATIONS, which has propelled her into one of the most celebrated new artists in the pop landscape.

According to Rolling Stone, “her latest singles – ‘Curious’ and ‘What I Need’ (featuring Kehlani) – have placed her at the forefront of an unapologetically queer pop movement, and she turned 2018 into “#20GayTeen” with the release of her long-awaited debut LP.”

The Observer went on to say that, “Her airy, LA-dreamy debut album sounds sparkling & refreshing”. Perhaps VICE sums it up best, stating that “Hayley is exactly what we need from a pop star in 2018”.

Earlier this month it was announced that Hayley is nominated for both the Best New Artist and Best Push Artist awards at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, which take place in New York on August 20th.Hayley Kiyoko’s debut album, EXPECTATIONS, is out now on Atlantic Records.
