Electronic hip-hop artist Iggy Azalea has released a new album, which can only mean one thing — a new tour.

“The New Classic Tour” began on Wednesday at Boston’s House of Blues. The month-long tour will be making 12 stops throughout North America including New York, Toronto and Los Angeles, before finishing in Seattle at The Neptune Theatre on May 22.

Earlier this week, Azalea, who toured as the opening act for the Australian leg of “Mrs. Carter Tour”, announced on Hot 97 earlier this week that she won’t be crowd surfing at her shows anymore as she’s been sexually assaulted too many times by fans.

This is her first headlining tour and is to promote her debut album The New Classic, which was released earlier this week. Her single “Fancy” featuring Charlie XCX has been climbing the Billboard Top 100 since it premiered six weeks ago.
