Gwen is coming to a city near you!

Select dates for her upcoming This Is What the Truth Feels Like North American tour were announced and confirmed and have her heading to amphitheaters and stadiums with Eve this summer kicking off July 12 in Mansfield, Massachusetts and wrapping up in Inglewood, California on October 15. The whole month of September seems to be off the books so we could possibly see additional dates being added down the road.

Below are scheduled tour dates for North America (US and Canada) and links to purchase tickets via Ticketmaster, AXS and LiveNation. Pre-sales for select dates start tomorrow, Tuesday, April 19 at 10:00AM, which include VIP packages and tickets to the show. All shows go on-sale to the general public this Friday, April 22 at 10:00AM. Ticket prices range from $18.00-$144.95 USD for select dates. A limited number of VIP tour packages will be available via VIP Nation (for select dates) that will include a meet and greet with Gwen along with special goodies you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

For those wondering, as of now it looks like there will no tour club this time around.

No dates have been announced outside of North America.

LiveNation is sponsoring the tour and shared the following press release and dates:

Three-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer/songwriter Gwen Stefani will return to the road this summer as she launches her This Is What the Truth Feels Like 2016 tour on July 12 in Boston, Massachusetts. Gwen’s highly anticipated tour will bring high-energy performances to dozens of cities throughout North America including Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Tampa and Vancouver this Summer as well as dates in Los Angeles and San Francisco this Fall. A complete list of dates can be found below. The This Is What the Truth Feels Like tour is promoted by Live Nation.

Hip hop star and actress EVE will join Stefani for all dates on the This Is What the Truth Feels Like tour. GRAMMY Award-winning artist EVE, also an established actress known for her role in the Barbershop film series and achieved success as a fashion designer, has collaborated with Stefani on two successful hit songs – “Rich Girl” and “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” – earning a GRAMMY Award for the latter.

  1. TMZ has reported this last week people. Part of her custody agreement with Gavin is 50/50, but for now, he will be getting more time with the kids, due to her TOUR schedule. This was filled on their divorce settlement documents, that are open records. They had reported this a few months ago, but they said “touring”, but knowing Gwen, I was assuming The Voice and promotion for TIWTTFL than a full US tour.


  2. OMG this is so amazing but I’m nervous cause these are much bigger places than the ones she did in NY and LA.. do you guys think it’ll sold out?

  3. Any chance there’ll also be some shows in Europe at some point? I’d kill to finally see her live, but there’s no way I can afford going to America just for that…

        1. Do u? I have beem waiting since 97 for NDnand Gwen to return. They negotiated a deal for one concert in BR (in SP) during the TSE tour but she passed. At this point I hope she goes to Chile at least… but for years they have avoided South America.

  4. After the USA, I would guess there will be a European tour. So many songs to do from her new album plus some old ones too.
    Looks like she kept June open for the kids.
    Wonder if Blake’s schedule coincides with hers?

  5. This era has been exclusively American. I don’t think she will tour overseas at all. hope they release a DVD though.

  6. Anyone have any info on the prices for VIP Meet and greet? Or know how much they were in the past?

    So sorry to all our international friends.

    1. Prices haven’t been released yet for the VIP packages — I think that’s what we’re all waiting for! I remember ND having those auctions back in 2009 which went up to $1000… I can’t see them being that high but can’t say for sure yet.

  7. Yeah at least a DVD would be nice since she’ll probably not leave North America for this tour… It is understandable, though. This whole comeback just isn’t happening outside if the USA and Canada. The singles didn’t happen in Europe and the album sold poorly. I don’t think she could sell out shows in Europe at this point and the last thing she needs right now is a flop tour. If anything, she should add some tour dates in Japan since MMLY is doing well over there. Europe just isn’t interested anymore and I guess Interscope and Gwen aren’t interested in trying anymore 🙁

  8. Only one show in NY?? Strange… Unfortunately none of those locations work well for me, but I’m hoping she might add some more or I can figure something out. I’m so glad she was able to put this together!

    1. Or probably they’re waiting to see if tickets will sell well so they can add more dates. Btw I think the show she did in NY last October didn’t sell out. So maybe they’re just being cautious…

      1. Yeah I was thinking she left September open in case she wants to add more shows. I might fly out to Chicago since I have a friend out that way and the show is on a Saturday. The more I think about it…the more I realize I REALLY need to go to a show! The setlist will be AMAZING…and who knows when or if I will ever see her or ND again.

  9. Didn’t she already add additional dates from this morning? It looked like there were more added like later in the day such as Cincinnati and others.
    I will have to drive 5 and a half hours either north or further south to see her, but I will.
    Ny is odd, Blake just announced his tour schedule and he is doing two shows in Nyc, there are more country fans up there than you would think.
    Looks like a lot are in outdoor amphitheaters which I love.
    Maybe she could do a show in London and one in Ireland for a European tour.

    1. I just checked, and everything seems to be current with what I have. I’m surprised at some of the cities but I’m happy she’s finally coming back to Seattle. I was afraid that I was going to have to travel to California to see her.

  10. Tour schedule makes a lot of sense. Two ideas behind it. Kids in school for summer, and some schools have an Oct break. BUT also looks like Maroon 5’s schedules in the past that makes me wonder if she thought she would be on the Voice again.

  11. I can’t believe the meet and great is $1000. What is gwen thinking! Can any of her big fans even afford that?

    1. Well it’s not a matter of can, it’s a matter of be willing to. I could and she’s my idol but I’m not that delusional with life, come on. I like to do charity work and donations, rather use my money to help people.

      1. Agreed Ed! I would be happy to buy an average ticket, at 34 I have other priority in life and even being a huge, I just can’t see myself forking up $1000 to do a M&G.

    2. Maybe it’s weird, but it’s never been my goal in life to meet Gwen or the boys. I could have once, but choose not to. I guess I fear I may be disappointed. I’d rather admire from afar! LOL But yeah, 1,000 bucks is crazy. I would never pay that much money just to meet another person LOL

  12. I’m super sad she isn’t coming to Sacramento,CA. Looks like I’ll be heading to the Bay Area Show on Oct 8th.

    AND I think it’s ridiculous that she is charging $995 for M&G… NOBODY can afford that. Crying on the inside because it’s always been my dream to meet her.

  13. I live in Cincinnati and am moving to FL end of August. I need to score some sweet tickets. I have an AMEX card, I hope the promos codes work for me tomorrow. Not super excited for Eve to be the opener. Ohh well I will def put up with it to see Gwen!

  14. A tour is so wonderful but I need the tour to come to Europe! I understand it hasn’t done as great in Europe but a London date seems necessary to me… It would sell out for definite just based on the fact it’s Gwen Stefani, regardless of how well TIWTTFL has done this era over here! I would do anything really to see Gwen, I just couldn’t afford travel to America!

        1. Flights within Europe are super cheap recently. I really wish she comes. I’m pulling my savings to see her in the USA though, I’m not gonna risk it!

  15. I don’t think I’ll be able to see her either. I wish there would have been more shows but I guess she wants to be with her family too. I’m happy she’s at least touring and I’ll get to hear these new songs live even if it’s just online

  16. just once it would be nice if she came to the first niagra center in buffalo,ny I guess once again my only hope is Toronto……… shit

    1. Yeah it’s annoying that upstate NY got ignored this time, but I’m hoping more shows might be added if there’s a good response…

  17. Anyone else having trouble for tickets for the Kliptsch Center in Indiana?. It isn’t letting me purchase with Citicard presale– went on sale 27 minutes ago!

    1. And you’re using your Citi card? How lame! I would maybe reach out to Ticketmaster by phone if you’re able to at this point…

      1. Finally got thru! Tried from 10 am till almost 1 pm. Yes it was Citicard– not sure if it was a glitch or heavy demand– that would be great tho!
        Whew! It will be worth the 5 plus hour drive to Indiana — can’t wait!

  18. Just bought tickets for the Camden, NJ show! Got lucky that I have a citi card. I’m in NYC, annoyed that we don’t have any shows here, but I’ve got a good friend in Philly that I’m going with!

    Now I’m poor, lol

  19. I bought 2 GA tickets in the pit for the Kansas City show with the Citi Card password but didn’t use a Citi card for payment. Came to about $175 per ticket after fees/taxes/etc. On No Doubt’s last tour in 2009, I was able to get front row reserved seats for about $90 a ticket (bought 2). I cannot believe how expensive concert tickets have gotten!

  20. Those prices make me want to boycott even going to the shows. That’s ridiculously unfair to ask of fans. I miss the days of getting first 5 rows because you actually tried for it right when they went on sale. The meet and greet opportunities are cool, but not worth that price. 🙁 BOOOOO!!!

    1. Elle, a lot of artist’s concert tickets, VIP and M&G passes are close to what is being charged for Gwen’s concerts. Tickets are pricey all over the world. A front row seat in my country can get up to R$700 (local currency), arount $198 USD. Also… Bieber’s M&G were $2000.

  21. Woohoo upstate NYers unite! I am from Albany area…Averill Park. My first concert was No Doubt at the Times Union Center/Pepsi Arena/ Whatever it is now.

  22. Did the Amex codes work for anyone? I couldn’t get any of them to work and the citi code won’t work for my Amex. I am annoyed.

    1. Bummer! I was able to use the Citi password and purchase the tickets with a different type of payment in Kansas City.

  23. I got my presale tickets for the final show at The Forum!!! Now the HARD part, waiting for October………

  24. I got GA pit tix! So excited!

    NDlover how did you meet her for free?

    And yeah, as far as prices go… 1000 is ridiculous but I guess she’s a huge celebrity. 140 for GA pit is expensive, but when I was trying to go see Madonna’s rebel heart tour last year (I didn’t go) bad, far away seats were as expensive as 300-400. I was surprised the VIP tix were further back then the pit but 325. I feel like I paid 80 per ticket when I saw her last 2 tours and No Doubt.

  25. I got pit tickets for the Forum show! Wonder if she’s gonna do anything special since it’s the closing show. I’m pretty bummed out about the meet and greet prices too, but I imagine that was something decided upon at Live Nation, and not something in her control. One day I’ll meet her :/

    1. Maybe some special guests like Pharrell or Blake. She and Blake will have a duet out so I look for himnto show up at one of the locations.

    2. No. Actually I have worked in the business and all artists have final say over all prices for tickets and meet and greet. Adele told all of her staff tickets could not go over about $100 for anything and they followed her lead. Unfortunate but true. Maybe they will lower the price if they do not selll enough M&G tickets.

  26. Glad I bought ahead. I just checked Indiana, Cinci and Atlanta and it would not show me anything except VIP. I started at 10 am and tried till 10: 20. How could they be sold out when it first opened?

  27. Side note I was never a red flag fan but I actually think its gonna sound dope live. Asking 4 It too. They definitely sound better loud.

  28. I hate the fact that I wont be able to see Gwen for the third time in concert. 🙁 Hopefully there will be videos of the Aug 6th show floating around afterwards….

  29. Guys, I’m flying from Norway to Toronto to see Gwen on Aug 4! I was going for the LA one but found it too expensive. So happy I get to see her live for the first time, it’s a childhood dream come true!!!!! 😀 😀 😀

          1. Really Jenny? Me too! Maybe I will get meet the infamous Jenny from BSO 🙂

    1. If the pits sell out there’s usually profit. Lady Gaga sold miserably on her last world tour but still got some profit out of it. Fingers crossed guys!!

    1. That’s because the shows are scheduled 3 days after Drake’s OVO festival in toronto… let’s wait and see. Source btw?

  30. Is it only the Canadian shows that aren’t selling out?
    The three cities that I kept checking seemed to go quickly, Cinci, indy and Atlanta.

  31. I’m not sure I haven’t looked at any others. I just checked ticket master and saw that the Vancouver and Toronto shows have lots of seats still available

  32. I’m sure it doesn’t help that she hasn’t done much promo up there. Just one Matercard show right?

  33. You can still pull pit for a lot of the shows. I am worried too. The venues are far too big. I hope it’s not cancelled.

    1. I checked like three or four random sites and they were all sold out except 8 to 11 platinum seats for 300 dollars. Those usually go last minute.
      Would say she is having great response.

    1. In Seattle, she’s going to Key Arena and that holds 17,459. I checked again this morning and TONS of tickets are still available, including pit and close to the stage. I seriously didn’t need to sweat like I did with getting my tickets because ones I had my eyes on before and now being resold and are cheaper… oh well. At least I have good tickets.

  34. I hope this link works: http://nyp.st/1TdPvFR

    Eeek. If the venues are the size of Jenny’s show, then they definitely overestimated the interest in Gwen’s tour. I don’t think ND could even fill that anymore. 🙁

  35. Looks like there’s a second forum show added on the 16th so maybe ticket sells are not that bad??? Jones beach show in ny not selling out but at least 20$ Promo ticks gone (or were never available?)… I think it’s hard for people who have actual jobs to go even if they really want to, what w the concert being midweek and in an out-of-the-way location from nyc proper… My friend and I will both need to take at least a half day off to make it in from Manhattan, which is probably prohibitive for others…

  36. I really hope ticket sales pick up. I was disappointed when I heard Eve would joining her. I find her music etc to be meh.I think it would have helped to have a different opener. A more relevant artist may have boosted ticket sales.

  37. I completely agree Marion. I don’t mean to disrespect Eve, but I think Gwen could have picked another opening act that would have drawn more interest from a younger crowd. Grace maybe? Melanie Martinez? Elle King? There are a few up and coming quirky female artists who would have paired nicely with Gwen.

  38. I was really surprised by the tour itinerary TBH. I’m no expert, but it just seemed odd to me..
    The size of the venues seemed very aggressive, but also I thought the routing was bit strange.
    2 dates/cities in missouri, north carolina, and virgina?? 3 in texas? Yet no OC or san diego date, only LA?

    I really hope they know what they’re doing and it ends up selling faster as the dates get closer

  39. Did you see her snap chat with folder that may be a set list? I believe I saw: naughty, red flag, obsessed,Harajuku girls , Richgirl, wind it up,baby don’t lie, early winter,spark the fire, send me a picture. The rest were too blurry!

  40. I’m so glad Obsessed is there! I wasn’t sure if she’d bother with any of the bonus tracks.

  41. I got put tix for the 2nd to last show. And will be meeting her on the final show…I will be hugging her for all of us.

  42. Gwen just asked on her twitter what songs everyone wants her to do on her tour –she is making her set list now!!!

  43. My dream setlist in no particular order:
    -Hollaback Girl
    -The Sweet Escape
    -Early Winter
    -Used To Love You
    -Make Me Like You
    -Rich Girl (with Eve)
    -Let Me Blow Ya Mind (with Eve)
    -Asking 4 It
    -Where Would I Be
    -Send Me A Picture
    -Red Flag
    -Getting Warmer
    -Danger Zone
    -Wind It Up
    -Wonderful Life
    -4 in the Morning
