|Christina Aguilera concert chronology|
The Liberation Tour is the fifth concert tour by American recording artist Christina Aguilera. The tour supports Aguilera's eighth studio album, Liberation (2018). The tour currently plays over 20 concerts in North America. It marks the singer's first concert tour in 11 years. Aguilera has yet to announce international tour dates.
Background[edit | edit source]
A few weeks before the tour started, Christina asked fans on social media what songs would they like to be added to the setlist. She also teased some photos and videos from the rehearsals. Aguilera made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on September 12 to promote. A website titled "Liberate Your Love" was launched on September 23, and fans attending the tour can submit their love stories.
The tour kicked off on September 25, 2018 in Hollywood, Florida. A new unreleased song, seemingly titled "Wonderland", was played as an interlude in between songs. At one point of the first show, the singer got emotional and expressed how much she has missed performing for her fans. After singing "Unless It's With You", she helped facilitate a proposal for a gay couple by inviting them onto the stage.
