Fresh off the heels of her recent tour with Stevie Nicks, Vanessa Carlton has announced her 2023 headlining tour, dubbed the “Future Pain Tour.” The tour will be Carlton’s first headlining U.S. tour in five years.

“Future Pain” is a single off of Carlton’s latest album, Love Is An Art, which was released back in 2020 and produced by Dave Fridmann (MGMT, Flaming Lips). Love Is An Art explores the eternal seesaw that is human connection: the push, the pull, the balance, the bottoming out. It’s that constantly evolving nature of love, expectations and compassion that Carlton analyzes from all angles on Love Is An Art, from romantic, to parental, to the friends that hold us up and the leaders that repeatedly let us down.

The “Future Pain tour” will kick off on March 1st in Annapolis Maryland and run cross country, stopping in Philadelphia, New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, and many more cities before wrapping up on April 9th in Denver, Colorado. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, November 18th and can be purchased here.
