Camila Cabello is joining the funk this summer as she hits the road with Bruno Mars for the 24K Magic Tour. The former Fifth Harmony member announced via social media on Tuesday that she will be opening for the “That’s What I Like” singer.
“SO EXCITED THAT I’M OPENING FOR @BRUNOMARS THIS SUMMER!!!!!!,” Cabello captioned an Instagram video announcing the tour dates. “Every night I’m gonna be peering out from side stage trying to learn as much as I can because for years I’ve looked up to Bruno as a vocalist, musician, entertainer and artist, I’m so honored and excited to be able to open up these shows!!”
This will be the 20-year-old’s first solo tour since departing 5H. She also released two singles in May—“Crying in the Club” and “I Have Questions”—from her upcoming solo album titled The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving, which is set to drop in September.

“’The hurting the healing the loving’ is the story of my journey from darkness into light, from a time when I was lost to a time when I found myself again,” Cabello wrote explaining her album. “The story behind the album starts with the second song that you’ll hear called ‘I have questions’ which I started writing in a hotel bathroom on tour a little over a year ago. I was completely broken during that time, I was in the kind of pain that’s uncomfortable to talk about, and it was the kind of chapter you never want to read out loud….” She went on to explain the raw process of writing the songs and the pivotal point in her life where it took a turn for the positive.
The tour with Cabello as opening act will start on July 20 in San Jose, California and end on August 22 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Starting in September, Dua Lipa will take over and join Mars going into 2018.
