Screen Shot 2017-03-05 at 1.41.00 PM.pngAppearing seemingly out of thin air, singer-songwriter Banks first rose to fame when she served, not once but twice, as one of the opening acts to The Weeknd during both his 2013 Kiss Land Tour and his 2015 The Madness Tour. With incredible exposure for the singer-songwriter due to the popularity and success of both The Weekend’s albums and tours, Banks immediately shot to fame. Two years later, she is heading out on a tour of her own which will mark the first time the talented performer has headlined her own long tour.

Banks has released two studio albums so far titled, Goddess, and her most recent, The Altar. With a few big hits that have really fast tracked her career, including Trainwreck and Gemini Feed, the singer has accomplished a lot in just a few short years.

Banks has a unique style that appears to be her very own, which fans are calling “dark R&B”. With influences like The Weekend and Ellie Goulding, it is no wonder she is doing so well in the music world. Her songs are emotional, sometimes dark, and very relatable. Her music videos feature talented dancers and performers who take her music to the next level. With her talent for songwriting that can only be described as magnetic to listeners, Banks has a way of pulling in audiences and stunning them with both her sound and her words.

Banks will head out on the first leg of her tour in a couple of weeks where she will perform at big festivals in the United States including Coachella and South by Southwest alongside concert halls and stadiums on the west coast. After taking a short break in May, Banks will head back out on tour, this time tackling the east coast. She will play at the iconic Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City alongside the vibrant Electric Forest Music Festival. Her tour will wrap up in Ontario, Canada, where she will play at the relatively new WayHome Music & Arts Festival.

While many of the tickets are sold out to some of the shows in the first leg of the Banks 2017 Tour, the tickets to the second leg of the tour went on sale only two days ago.
