New Orleans–August 8, 2019– Big Freedia hit another career milestone: She is on the cover of music industry bible, Billboard Magazine, alongside artists Hayley Kiyoko, ILOVEMAKONNEN, Tegan Quin, and Adam Lambert.
She is also excited to announce the Azz Across America Tour with Philly-based rockers Low Cut Connie.
An unexpected pairing perhaps, but both Big Freedia and Low Cut Connie share high-energy, raucous displays on stage that leave crowds sweaty and energized. “Fans better be ready for some wild sh*t,” says Big Freedia of the match-up. “We are going to shake our asses off.”
Low Cut Connie frontman Adam Weiner, who’s been compared to Little Richard, says, “These are intense times. Feeling joy together is an audacious response to chaos and disharmony.”

About Big Freedia
A staple on the New Orleans club scene for over a decade, Big Freedia moved to the national stage after Hurricane Katrina. One of the first residents to return to New Orleans after the disaster, her music was considered one of the uniting forces of the ravaged city. After a series of cult hit singles during the mid 2000’s, Big Freedia was taped for a reality show, Big Freedia Bounces Back on Fuse TV.
Big Freedia has caught the attention of iconic artists. In 2016, she was featured on Beyonce’s Grammy- winning single, “Formation;” in 2018 on Drake’s Nice For What. Big Freedia released her first major label album, ‘3rd Ward Bounce’ (Asylum Records) in 2018.
