The SOS tour comes in support of her December 2022 chart-topping album SOS. 

Influenced by avant-garde jazz, alternative rock, and hardcore rap, American singer/songwriter SZA has become one of the most seminal voices in modern R&B, a genre-blurring force akin to contemporaries such as Jorja Smith, Solange, H.E.R., Kehlani and Brent Faiyaz.

The Grammy Award winner first entered the scene in 2012 with the critically-acclaimed EP, “See.SZA.Run”, consecutively followed by ‘Sand Z’ to rave reviews. Her major-label debut record “Ctrl” helped SZA score the most nominations of any female artist at the 2018 Grammy awards. Certified RIAA Platinum, the record deservingly landed #1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chat, #2 on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart and #3 on the Billboard 200 chart – revered for its law and honest lyricism by fans and media alike. Locally, “Ctrl” tracks ‘Love Galore’ ft. Travis Scott achieved platinum certification whilst ‘The Weekend’ claiming gold status certification.

Fast forward to now and her latest album SOS features an incredible collection of tracks, including features from the likes of Phoebe Bridgers, Travis Scott, Don Toliver, and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard and the hit track ‘Kill Bill’.

On top of that, SZA was the most nominated artist at the 2024 Grammy Awards, with nine nominations and three awards, taking out the crown for Best Progressive R&B Album for SOS, Best R&B Song for Snooze, and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her Phoebe Bridgers duet, Ghost In The Machine.
