American pop star Olivia Rodrigo (pic) is set to play her first Singapore concert at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Oct 1.

The 21-year-old Grammy winner announced the Asian and Australian legs of her ongoing Guts world tour on her website and social media platforms on May 9.

It includes stops in Thailand, South Korea, Hong Kong and Japan.

The poster for the announcement includes the line “Stay tuned Manila!”, suggesting that the Philippines will be added to the tour.

The singer – whose father is Filipino and mother is German-Irish – is best known for some of the biggest pop hits in recent years, including piano ballad Drivers License and pop-punk song Good 4 U, both from her debut album Sour (2021).

She released her second album, Guts, in 2023. Both her albums topped music charts worldwide, including in the United States, Britain and Australia.

She has won multiple awards, such as the Grammy for Best New Artiste in 2022 and seven Billboard Music Awards, and was Time magazine’s Entertainer of the Year in 2021.

Rodrigo started taking acting and singing lessons at age six and first appeared on television in a commercial at 12. She made her Disney debut a year later on comedy series Bizaardvark (2016 to 2019) and played the female lead in the musical series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (2019 to 2023). – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
