R&B singer GIVĒON is coming to St. Pete's Jannus Live on Sept. 24 to perform his upcoming album 'Give or Take.'

St. Pete, prepare to be serenaded.

With his first studio album, Give or Take, set to drop next week on June 24, R&B artist Givēon (stylized GIVĒON) has also announced a nationwide tour coming to Tampa Bay this fall.

The "Heartbreak Anniversary" singer stops by St. Petersburg's Jannus Live on Sept. 24 with doors opening at 7 p.m. R&B artists Fana Hues and Saleka will open the show. Tickets to see Givēon with Fana Hues and Saleka at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, Florida on Sept. 24 start at $34.99.
Hues, who's supporting Givēon on half of his U.S. tour, recently came off the road with Raveena, is touring behind her latest album, flora + fana, which was written almost entirely in 2021 as the songwriter grappled with social justice movements unfolding around her. But more than a reaction to the protests, Hues departs from romance and relationships on the album, instead singing about self-care, stillness and solitude.

Although he'd dropped four singles prior, the 27-year-old Givēon's career skyrocketed in 2020 after landing the infamous Drake co-sign, appearing as a mysterious feature on the Toronto rapper's hit song, "Chicago Freestyle," which peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The California native was able to stay in the spotlight following the viral hit when he dropped his first project, Take Time, with hit song "Heartbreak Anniversary" which is now certified triple platinum.

He's since appeared atop the charts with a Grammy-nominated "Peaches" collab with Justin Bieber, follow-up Drizzy collab on "In The Bible," two-time platinum single "Like I Want You" and compilation album When It's All Said and Done... Take Time.

Givēon's serenading vocals and romanticized lyrics give him a unique, refreshing style that intertwines influences like baritone legend Frank Sinatra and pop superstar The Weeknd.
