After Australia, Pergolizzi will stage a gig in Kyiv, Ukraine and a pair of shows in Russia. The singer will then embark on her Heart To Mouth North American Tour, which runs from early-May to mid-June.
LP first made a name for herself as a songwriter, co-penning songs such as Rihanna’s 2011 hit ‘Cheers (Drink to That)’ and The Veronicas’ ‘Lolita’, which has been certified Gold by ARIA. Pergolizzi later made her major label debut in 2014 with her acclaimed album, ‘Forever for Now’.
The upcoming Bluesfest 2020 added Alanis Morissette and Tori Kelly to its lineup earlier this week. The duo join a star-studded bill which includes Dave Matthews Band, Patti Smith, Lenny Kravitz and more. Earlier this week, Smith also added two headline shows in Newcastle and Melbourne to her Australia tour.
