Swedish singer Tove Lo kicked off her first ever headlining tour at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, CA on September 28th. The “Queen of the Clouds” tour, in support of her debut album, is taking Tove Lo through 19 cities across North America and the UK.

Tove Lo

Having seen Tove Lo perform at a SXSW showcase earlier this year, I knew I had to catch her full production show this time around – and the experience did not disappoint. The Observatory North Park is a beautifully restored theater with great sound, which complimented Tove Lo’s voice and her percussion-rich (2 drummers!) production.

She opened her set with the anthemic “Not On Drugs,” and kept the sexually-charged energy at a high throughout her entire set, peaking with her song “Talking Body,” the second single from the record. Tove Lo took a break from her flirty stage antics, settling in behind a keyboard for her song “Paradise,” sharing with the crowd that it was one of the first songs she had ever written. The powerful track “Timebomb” closed the show, but the stage was again illuminated for her final encore including “Run On Love” and her audience-anticipated lead single “Habits (Stay High).”

Tove Lo

Tove Lo reshapes the “typical” pop-genre mold with the darker textures of her writing. Lyrics are bold, carrying honest raw emotion and an authenticity that’s relatable with fans.

Tove Lo’s “Queen of the Clouds” tour runs through mid-November. Songs from her Truth Serum EP and Queen of the Clouds record can be heard across many of Mood’s music programs.
