Khalid to bring Free Spirit Tour to Dallas

By: Haley Arnold, Contributor, Regional Music Journal

Khalid is embarking on his first arena tour this summer titled Free Spirit World Tour. The 21-year-old from El Paso turned heads with the release of his single “Location” back in 2016, just a few months after his high school graduation. His first LP, American Teen, came out in 2017, which hit No. 9 on the Billboard album chart, followed by an EP titled “Suncity” in 2018. Khalid has become one of the most well-known R&B artists of the late 2010s and even earned five Grammy nominations in 2018, including for Best Song and Best New Artist. He released his second studio album, “Free Spirit”, on April 5 of this year, which has spent 10 weeks on the Billboard 200 with a peak at No. 1.
