La Roux Announce U.S. Headlining Tour

After canceling stops due to illness this summer, the British electropop act returns Stateside in November.

British electropop sensation [artist id="3142505"]La Roux[/artist] have landed top spots on radio playlists all summer long with their smash-hit single “Bulletproof,” which has sold more than 1.5 million copies and is into its 24th week on the Billboard Hot 100. And Elly Jackson and company were eager to prove that Kevlar strength Stateside this summer, but she was forced to cancel a handful of dates due to bronchitis and then pharyngitis. But now she’s ready to return with a headlining U.S. tour in November.

The tour will last only for a brief 17 days, kicking off in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on November 1 before heading up the East Coast to conclude at New York’s Terminal 5.

La Roux have also announced that their single “In for the Kill” will be hitting U.S. radio stations within the next month. The track — for which they shot a video almost a year ago — has been generating a buzz since Skream’s “Let’s Get Ravey” remix of the song appeared on an episode of HBO’s “Entourage” earlier this month.
