Nigerian superstar Wizkid, known for his soulful and uplifting Afrobeats music, announced the postponement of his More Love, Less Ego tour, which was originally scheduled to kick off on March 3rd in Houston, Texas, and end on April 9th in Los Angeles, California. The tour has now been rescheduled to Fall 2023 due to unforeseen circumstances.
In November 2021, Wizkid released his fifth studio album, More Love, Less Ego, which quickly became a fan favorite. It featured collaborations with Ayra Starr, Don Toliver, Naira Marley, Shenseea, SkilliBeng, and Skepta. Following the album’s release, the artist announced a North American tour, which was set to begin in March 2023.
However, on March 1st, Wizkid took to Twitter and Instagram to announce the postponement of the tour due to unforeseen logistical circumstances. The More Love, Less Ego tour was scheduled to include 20 shows in cities across North America, including Houston, Dallas, Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix, and Los Angeles. It is currently unknown whether the postponed Fall 2023 tour will include the same cities.
Despite the disappointment of the tour postponement, fans still have plenty to look forward to. Wizkid is set to co-headline Afro Nation’s inaugural festival in Miami, where he will perform on May 28th. He will also serve as a headliner at the inaugural Rolling Loud Germany festival in July.
Moreover, with the tour rescheduled for Fall 2023, fans can expect an even better show from the artist, who has continued to evolve and delight audiences with his music. In his Instagram story announcing the tour postponement, Wizkid assured fans that all tickets purchased for the originally scheduled shows would be honored on the new dates at the respective venues.
Fans who are disappointed by the postponement can take comfort in the fact that Wizkid has been teasing his next album, seemingly titled SeiLess, since November. With the tour pushed back to Fall 2023, the artist may have more time to work on his new album and potentially make the rescheduled tour even more unforgettable.
