In less than two weeks, South Korean global icon and award-winning artist CL will embark on her first solo concert tour, HELLO BI+CHES TOUR 2016. With 9 dates in North America, CL’s HELLO BI+CHES TOUR 2016 is bound to be the hottest, most talked-about tour of the year featuring a Korean performer.
The HELLO BI+CHES TOUR 2016 kicks off Saturday, October 29 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, and will make stops in a number of major North American markets including Seattle, Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago and Toronto.
CL’s HELLO BI+CHES TOUR 2016 will be designed and choreographed by award-winning veteran Creative Director HiHat, who has worked with the likes of Missy Elliott, Shakira, Jay-Z, Kesha, Mary J. Blige and Rihanna, and also served as a guest judge on the seventh season of the top-rated dance competition TV show, So You Think You Can Dance. HiHat is also currently the Performance Producer for NBC’s three time Emmy Award winning show The Voice. Her work has been featured in films such as Bring It On, Kung Fu Panda and the second and third installments of the popular Step Up franchise movie series. She most recently choreographed Rihanna’s show-stopping 2016 MTV Video Music Award performance, as well as CL’s appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
“Working with CL has been a pleasure since our first collaboration,” says HiHat. “She is an incredible, versatile talent with most importantly a huge heart and passion for her craft. CL is surely going to become a household name in the U.S. after this tour and I’m excited to see her win.”
CL’s HELLO BI+CHES TOUR 2016 promises to be unlike any theater tour you’ve ever seen. Its powerful, extravagant production fully displays CL’s unique creative vision for her first solo tour. Packed with world class dancers, an incredible live band, and special effects, every second of this show will be exploding with excitement.
Also on board as Tour Manager is Keith Albrizzi, best known for his work with Miley Cyrus’s 2014 Bangerz World Tour and 2015 Milky Milky Milk Tour. “This show is truly a world-class production in a theater. In my 27 years of working on shows, I’ve never seen an artist create such a spectacular no-holds barred production for the size of the venues that we’re in. I’m very honored be part of this tour and CL’s creative vision,” says Albrizzi, who has also worked with artists such as Matt Goss, Guns N Roses, Joan Jett, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Whitney Houston, Fleetwood Mac, and many more.
CL has proven her power with the single “Hello Bitches” that put her on Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need To Know” list and her latest single “LIFTED”, which was called a ‘solid-gold banger’ by Entertainment Weekly and chosen as Apple Music’s ‘Best of the Week’ while also breaking into the Billboard Hot 100. This track brought her back into global spotlight and she now prepares to ride the wave for this North American tour. Tickets are currently on sale at CLTOUR2016.com
