Attention TV fans: actor Hayley Orrantia is going on tour!
While a lot of actors play someone completely opposite of themselves on TV or in movies, Orrantia is a lot more like her character Erica Goldberg on The Goldbergs than you might’ve expected. Sure, she’s only 23 years old, so she didn’t actually grow up in the ‘80s like her character, but she does have a musical side, and now you can here it live as Orrantia is embarking on her first-ever tour.
“I couldn’t be more excited to get a chance to meet everyone and share music that has been deeply inspired by this wild last year of my life,” Orrantia said in a statement via Just Jared Jr. announcing The Strong, Sweet and Southern Tour, which will kick off this spring. “I’m looking forward to meeting and personally thanking the fans who have followed my musical journey from the beginning and those who have found me through The Goldbergs.”
Throughout her career, Orrantia has recorded an EP, sang back up vocals for Disney Channel Original Movie soundtracks, and of course sang on The Goldbergs. In 2017, she released a new song called “Strong, Sweet and Southern,” which is where her first-ever solo tour got its name.
Here’s hoping this tour, which kicks off on April 5, 2018 in Dallas, Texas and runs through May 19, 2018 with its last show ending in Nashville, Tennessee, means fans will get a full-length album from the Texas native soon.
It’d certainly be a win-win for fans of Erica, um we mean, Hayley.
