JoJo Announces ‘Leaks, Mixtapes and Covers’ Tour Dates

JoJo will soon embark on a 15-date tour. Dubbed Leaks, Covers and Mixtapes, the singer will launch her tour in Anaheim, Calif. on May 29. From there, she will travel to several other major cities including Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Boston and New York before concluding in Dallas, TX on June 26.

Last August, JoJo launched her Clover Music imprint at Interscope Records. “I’m reunited with [Aaron Bay-Schuck], my original A&R at Atlantic, who was instrumental in signing me there,” JoJo explained. “One of the hardest things I’ve had to do in my career was leave the Atlantic family. It was a decision I seriously struggled with, but felt I owed it to myself to fulfill one of my ultimate goals, which was ownership.”
