For the first time, Olivia Rodrigo is going on a worldwide tour to promote her newest album “GUTS” topping her last tour with a whopping 77 total performances across the globe. 

Rodrigo’s GUTS world tour is currently trending and everyone is seeking to buy tickets. So far, she has had an amazing success in her tour and is still selling out stadiums. In her previous tour, she only performed 33 times in North America and 16 in Europe. Not only is this tour getting performed in multiple different countries but there are many more shows than her last tour, this gives many fans the chance to go to one of her concerts. 

“I really enjoyed the concert! The whole experience was amazing, not only was her set very entertaining but the crowd was also very engaged and it was fun to sing along!”, said senior Liora Shuster

Rodrigo performs 22 songs on this tour, some from her previous album “Sour” and her new songs from “GUTS (Spilled)”. The set list is “Bad Idea, Right?”, “Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl”, “Vampire”, “Traitor”, “Drivers License”, “Teenage Dream”, Pretty isn’t Pretty”, “Love is Embarrassing”, “Making the Bed”, “Logical”, “Enough for You”, “Lacy”, “Jealousy, Jealousy”, “Happier”, “Favorite Crime”, “Deja Vu”, “The Grudge”, “Brutal”, “Obsessed”, “All-American B*tch”, “Good 4 U”, “Get Him Back!”. Many fans who went to the tour thought that her adding in the new songs from GUTS was very exciting and made the concert experience better. 

This cost for the GUTS world tickets typically start at $278, however the average price is around $1081. These tickets are very pricey and as the dates get closer the price starts to get higher. You can buy these tickets on Ticketmaster , StubHub, SeatGeek, and many other sites. 

This tour is extremely demanding and pricey because this album is very popular right now. The GUTS album had six nominations at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, and Rodrigo ended up winning Pop Album of the Year.

This concert was very enjoyable; not only did Rodrigo do a great job performing, but the audience was very lively and energetic. Everyone that attended the show was singing, dancing, and recording. It was exciting to sing along with everyone.

During the performance Rodrigo brings out one star guest to perform to open up her show; she has so far brought out The Breeders, Chappell Roan, PinkPantheress, Remi Wolf, and many others.

Rodrigo had many different outfits, props, and so much more. A fan favorite of the concert was when Rodrigo was soaring in the air on a moon. 

 The tour first started off with “Bad Idea, Right?”, and as soon as the audience heard the music, the floor of the stadium started shaking. The vibe of the concert was very exciting and electric; there is no other way to describe it. This was such an amazing concert to attend from the audience, the tone, and the way Rodrigo performed. All 90 minutes of the concert were amazing. There was not a single part of the concert that went wrong. 

Although the concert was pricey it was worth it and many said that this concert was an amazing experience and they will never forget it.
