Live Nation presents Charli XCX: Crash the Live Tour
Charli XCX, is an English singer and songwriter. Born in Cambridge and raised in Start Hill, Essex, she began posting songs on Myspace in 2008, which led to her discovery by a promoter who invited her to perform at warehouse raves. In 2010, she signed a recording contract with Asylum Records, releasing a series of singles and mixtapes throughout 2011 and 2012.
In 2015, Charli XCX began working alongside producers associated with the UK collective PC Music, developing a more experimental sound and image. While working on her third album, she released the Vroom Vroom EP (2016) and the mixtapes Number 1 Angel and Pop 2 (both 2017), as well as a series of singles including the BPI-certified "After the Afterparty", "Boys", and "1999". Her third and fourth studio albums, Charli (2019) and How I'm Feeling Now (2020), received acclaim; the latter was created within a span of six weeks during the COVID-19 lockdowns. In 2021, Charli XCX featured on the Jax Jones and Joel Corry UK top-ten single "Out Out". Her fifth album, Crash (2022) became her first number-one album in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia, while also becoming her first top-ten album in the US.
