Big Freedia is back on the Road, Co-Headlining with Tank and The Bangas

Fresh off the release of her Asylum Records debut EP, 3rd Ward Bounce, and a European summer tour, the Queen of Bounce, BIG FREEDIA, has dropped the video for the highly acclaimed, instant fan-favorite song “Karaoke” f/ Lizzo.  After appearing in the New Orleans set “In My Feelings” video from Drake, Freedia continues the local journey through her beloved hometown in “Karaoke,” also finding time to twerk across the beach with Lizzo.  Watch the video HERE.  “Working with Lizzo in LA on this video was a career highlight,” says Freedia. “Her energy was exactly what I needed to get this track to come to life!”

Freedia also announced a U.S. fall co-headlining tour with Tank and the Bangas which kicks off at a SOLD OUT show in Big FreediaWashington D.C. October 18, following a performance at LA’s Adult Swim Festival on October 6. See full tour dates below.  For ticket information, click HERE

“Tank and The Bangas are NOLA family and put on a show as lively as a Big Freedia show,” says Freedia. “Fans better be ready to shake some azzzzzz!”

It’s hard not to feel Freedia’s presence in pop culture. In addition to high-level appearances on culturally-defining tracks and a string of her own impacting releases, Freedia has become one of the strongest voices from the South, in part thanks to ‘Big Freedia Bounces Back’ on Fuse TV, a weekly docu-series that’s been on for six seasons and become the network’s highest-rated original series.

In addition to living life as a member of the LGBTQ community, she’s consistently used her music to lift listeners of all gender and sexual identity, using music as a bridge to unite. “I’m a voice for different communities,” she says. “Live your life and live the best way you know how. Love whoever you choose to love. Be whoever you want to be, do whatever you want to do. It’s a much broader mission for me to encourage people all over—not just the LGBTQ community but heterosexuals as well to live out they life loud and proud.”

“I just want to inspire people to understand that New Orleans culture is very special, it’s a phenomenal place and that we’re on a rise to bigger and better things and we speak it through our music and everyday living down here,” says Freedia, who was born and raised in the city’s 3rd Ward. “The pain and suffering that we go through here in New Orleans, we take it and we flip it around.”
