Lindsay Ell Embarking on Headlining Tour Next Month
Lindsay Ell will hit the road next month as part of her firs- ever headlining tour. The "Criminal" singer will kickoff the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour on Oct. 27 and visit 15 cities throughout the country before the tour wraps in January.
"I’m so excited," Ell says in a release. "It’s going be a show we’ve never done before and I can’t wait for fans to see it!"
Before she heads out on her own, the 2018 Taste of Country RISERS act remains a support act on Sugarland’s Still The Same Tour, which wraps Sept. 9. She'll also join Keith Urban’s Graffiti U World Tour for select dates throughout the fall.

Though Ell is preparing a headlining tour and finding country radio success with "Criminal," things weren't easy for the Canadian singer when she was making her way up. In an interview with Taste of Country, Ell reveals she was lost, at least musically, before teaming up with her producer.
"At the point of my life when I sat down with Kristian Bush, I was kind of in a pretty dark place," Ell recalls. "I was really lost musically. As a songwriter, I'd find I was writing so much to what I thought radio wanted and I lost myself, a lot."
Through rediscovering her love of John Mayer's Continuum album and recording it her own way, she found herself and what would become her debut album, The Project. Fans will get to hear these tracks on her upcoming headlining tour.
