Award-winning global pop star Lara Fabian returns to the US with her “50” WORLD TOUR in celebration of her 50th birthday. The North American leg of the tour will also celebrate Lara’s 30 years on stage. The tour announcement comes on the heels of her new album PAPILLON, which dropped for the audience just before St. Valentine’s Day (February 8). Her new body of work is in French and now available on all streaming platforms (iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, YouTube, SoundCloud).
The “50” WORLD TOUR will honor a musical career spanning three decades, 14 studio albums and sales of over 20 million albums worldwide. The show kicks off in New York on September 16, 2019.
