Ben Platt announces short ‘Sing to Me Instead’ North American tour for May

Didn’t get the chance to see Ben Platt as Evan Hansen in the hit Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen? Well, there’s no need to be sad about that anymore because the actor-musician just announced plans to embark on a short tour in the spring. On Monday (Feb. 11), Platt unveiled a tour itinerary in support of his upcoming solo debut album.

Dubbed the Sing to Me Instead tour (after his debut album), the trek will find the singer performing at venues across the continent throughout the month of May. The outing includes stops in Detroit, Toronto, Boston, Philadelphia, New York, and more. The Sing to Me Instead tour begins on May 3 at the Chicago Theatre and concludes a few weeks later on May 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Wrabel and Ben Abraham will hit the road alongside Platt as his direct supporting acts.

Those who pre-order Platt’s album will receive first access to tickets. Pre-sales begin this Friday, Feb. 15, while general ticket sales begin next Friday, Feb. 22.

Sing to Me Instead is due out March 29 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders for the album are available here. Platt has already treated fans to two songs from the forthcoming release; “Ease My Mind” and Bad Habit.”

Later this month, Platt will perform “Bad Habit” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” The song will make its television debut next Thursday, Feb. 21.

Sing to Me Instead marks Platt’s first recorded outpost since his collaboration with Lin-Manuel Miranda in early 2018 on “Found/Tonight.” The mashup of “The Story of Tonight” from Hamilton and “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen debuted at the number one spot on Billboard‘s Digital Song Sales chart.
