Idina Menzel announces Take Me or Leave Me concert tour

Idina Menzel has announced her 2024 Take Me or Leave Me concert tour.

On Tuesday, the Broadway star revealed that she will be hitting the road later this year for her first tour in nearly eight years.

"I was really missing the connection with my fans," Idina told Billboard in a new interview. "I have my new musical Redwood at La Jolla Playhouse that I'm passionate about, and it's been occupying me. I thought, if that goes through another iteration, I wanted to make sure I got my time with my fans from a personal perspective as opposed to through a character."

The 21-stop U.S. tour will kick off in Seattle, Washington on 19 July, before visiting cities including Los Angeles, Dallas, Charleston, New York and Las Vegas, and concludes in Greensboro, North Carolina on 18 August.

The tour is named after the Tony Award-winning singer's hit song from the 1996 Broadway musical Rent, in which she played Maureen Johnson.

The star revealed that the tour will feature a career-spanning set list of hits, including songs from musicals she's performed in, such as Wicked, Frozen and Rent, as well as hits from her own albums.

Idina also took to Instagram to announce the news, revealing that she will be "doing a vintage set as well as lots of new material".

Idina most recently starred as Jesse in Redwood, a musical about a grieving woman who leaves her life in New York, from 25 February to 31 March.
