Sabrina Carpenter Announces 2024 North American Tour and Covers Chappell Roan Watch

Sabrina Carpenter has thrilled fans by announcing her 2024 North American tour, set to take place this autumn. The tour will see her performing in major arenas across the United States and Canada, with stops in cities like New York, Toronto, Chicago, Nashville, Austin, Seattle, and Los Angeles. Opening acts for select shows include Amaarae, Griff, and Declan McKenna.

In addition to her tour announcement, Carpenter recently made an appearance on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. There, she delivered a captivating cover of Chappell Roan’s song “Good Luck, Babe!” and performed her own hits “Please Please Please” and “Espresso.” Her rendition of Roan’s track started with a slowed-down intro before transitioning into a more faithful take, showcasing her vocal versatility.

Carpenter is also gearing up for the release of her new album, “Short n’ Sweet,” which will be her sixth studio LP. The album is set to drop on August 23, and while the full tracklist hasn’t been revealed, it has been confirmed that “Please Please Please” and “Espresso” will be included. The album cover has already been unveiled, adding to the excitement.

Last month, Carpenter was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, hosted by Jake Gyllenhaal. She performed “Espresso” and a medley of her songs “Feather” and “Nonsense,” both from her 2022 deluxe album “Emails I Can’t Send Fwd:”. She also participated in a Scooby-Doo-themed skit, playing the character Daphne.

Carpenter’s cover of “Good Luck, Babe!” has been particularly well-received. During her Live Lounge performance, she swapped the song’s original ’80s synths for a piano and acoustic guitar arrangement. Starting off slow, she gradually built up the intensity, showcasing her impressive falsetto by the song’s final chorus. Fans have praised her for bringing a unique twist to the track while maintaining its emotional core.

In a recent interview, Carpenter spoke about her friendship with Chappell Roan, her labelmate at Island Records. She mentioned that she had Roan’s songs on a “loopty loop” and that they had formed a close off-stage friendship. “I’ve been just as obsessed with her as everyone has,” Carpenter said. “It’s so weird when you’re hanging out as two young women as opposed to thinking about when she goes onstage and is that person and when I go on stage.”

Both Carpenter and Roan have had a successful few months. Carpenter’s singles “Espresso” and “Please Please Please” have topped the Billboard Global 200, while Roan’s “Good Luck Babe” has climbed to No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100. Roan’s debut album, “The Rise and Fall of a Midwest Princess,” has also reached its highest-charting week on the Billboard 200, entering the top 10.

Carpenter’s fans have been quick to express their excitement over her cover of “Good Luck, Babe!” on YouTube. Comments have poured in, praising her vocal performance and the emotional depth she brought to the song. One fan wrote, “OH MY GODDDD this is iconic. as a lesbian (who is absolutely in love with sabrina and chappell) im so happy chappell is getting recognition like this. i love that they’re friends too and planned this together, so cute i love them both.”

Another fan commented, “THE JAW I DROPPED. THE GASP I LET OUT. SABRINA I LOVE U SO FREAKING MUCH WTF,” while a third added, “Her voice sounds so angelic and powerful at the same time.” The performance, which took place during Pride Month, has been particularly meaningful for many fans.

Carpenter explained her choice to cover the song, saying, “I just haven’t stopped listening to this song since it came out. I’m a huge fan of Chappell’s and we wanted to put our own little twist on it.” Her rendition has certainly resonated with fans, adding another layer to her already impressive musical repertoire.

As Sabrina Carpenter prepares for her 2024 tour and the release of her new album, her fans have much to look forward to. With her recent performances and continued success, she continues to solidify her place as a prominent figure in the pop music scene.
