Bea Miller has been tapped as the opener for Selena Gomez‘ upcoming Revival Tour, which will be kicking off May 6 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas before traveling across the U.S. and through Canada.
17 year-old Miller dropped her first album, Not An Apology, last July, where it debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 on the strength of singles “Fire N Gold” and “Young Blood.” She’s currently back in studios recording a sophomore effort, though no release date has been set for that as of yet.
“I am looking forward to starting this new chapter by putting the finishing touches on my new album, and also looking forward to sharing my new music on the Revival Tour” said Miller in a statement. “I’m having the opportunity to work with some of the best collaborators in the business, and with the new music I am showing a more raw and vulnerable sound that I think my audience will really relate to.”
Miller is slated to open for Gomez through her July 9 show in Anaheim. DNCE is also scheduled to join Gomez for the North American leg.

I would like to apologize for the lack of updates. I got really busy with college this year, and I didn’t have as much time to dedicate to Bea Miller Web.
But, I have a lighter class load next term, so updates will be shortly coming your way! 🙂
Most 16 year-olds would crack under the pressure of trying to write, record and launch their first full-length studio album. But not Bea Miller; she’s as cool as a cucumber. With lots of TV time and a successful EP under her belt, Miller has her eyes on the prize; putting out great music that deeply connects with her fans.
An outspoken and thoughtful teen, Miller’s album Not An Apology appears perfectly titled.
Surprisingly, she says that the album is not titled after the song “This Is Not An Apology.” In fact, she feels that albums titles named after songs lack creativity. But after some brainstorming with her writers and agreeing that the whole “not apologizing” theme was too good to let go, she realized that by dropping the words “This” and “is” and changing it to Not An Apology, the phrase took on a different meaning and fit the entirety of the album. Got it?
But why the focus on apologies? Miller is keen to speak her mind, always. And she wants all young girls to speak their minds—to not shy away from sharing their feelings. Speaking your mind is
“a healthy thing to do…most of the time,” she tells Radio.com.
Miller thinks it’s something many are afraid to do.
“It’s a good lesson to teach young girls.”
