The band will also support Ariana on the newly announced European dates commencing on May 15th in Paris, France. Please see below for all North American tour dates. Earlier this year the band wrapped up its summer headlining Broken Heart Tour, playing sold-out shows to fans in major cities across the U.S.

Rixton will also make a special appearance performing in the Rotunda at Mall of America in Bloomington, MN, on Black Friday, November 28th where fans can pre-order their copy of Let The Road.
In addition, Rixton has been selected as part of the inaugural class of American Express' newest music program "American Express Unstaged: Artists in Residence," which tells the stories of three chosen artists, who also include Mary Lambert and Betty Who and invites fans to discover, connect with, and support them on their creative journey. American Express will premiere footage from the exclusive live concert featuring Rixton's performance on November 20th on amexunstaged.com/AIR, VEVO and Amex Now, the brand's always-on television channel through select service provider and connected TV application available across Samsung and LG connected TVs, and IP-connected devices including Roku and Amazon Fire TV.
