Mandy Moore, who transitioned from pop star to actor in the early 2000s, is getting back to her first love, going on tour for the first time in over a decade. She'll bring her tour to Cullen Performance Arts Center on Friday, April 24, 2020.

Moore made the announcement on her Facebook page November 19, indicating that the tour will be "an intimate, elevated evening of new and old tunes, performed with a superb group of musicians," a show that will "have threads of what the writing and recording process was like with this band, almost like you’ve been invited in our living room for an inside glimpse." Moore released a new single, "When I Wasn’t Watching," this past September.

The tour will travel to 29 cities across the United States, starting in Pittsburgh on March 20. In addition to Houston, Moore will also go to Dallas on April 23 and Austin on April 25. All three Texas dates will feature opening act Madison Cunningham.

Moore made her debut as a singer in 1999, releasing six albums over the next 10 years, her most recent being 2009's Amanda Leigh. While she had decent success in that realm, she has become much more well known as an actor, most notably for her role as Rebecca Pearson on the NBC show This is Us, for which she was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2019.

Various pre-sales for the tour start on Wednesday, November 20, with tickets for the general public going on sale on Friday, November 22.
