The tour brings Bareilles on the road in support of her fifth full-length album Amidst The Chaos which was just released last Friday to rave reviews – with Variety stating it “establishes that there’s no one in contemporary pop better at flexing mezzo-soprano sensitivity and social empathy like a muscle. It’s the perfect album for anyone who could use a little fierce snowflake pride.” This marks her first album of original material since 2013.
