Olivia Rodrigo Kisses Chappell Roan During Guts World Tour’s Boston Stop

Olivia Rodrigo kissed Chappell Roan at their concert Tuesday night (April 2), giving the indie musician a proper sendoff following her final opening set on the Guts World Tour.


Toward the end of Rodrigo’s second performance at Boston’s TD Garden, the 21-year-old pop star greeted fans gathered at the barricade near the stage — something that’s become a tradition at her Guts shows. This time, though, the “Casual” singer was there waiting.

When Rodrigo saw Roan amongst the concertgoers, she excitedly embraced the 26-year-old rising star and planted a big smooch on her mouth. Jumbotrons captured the sweet moment, which made the crowd cheer louder.

The pair waved goodbye into the camera before making their way into the wings, signifying the end of Roan’s time on the Guts Tour.

The “Red Wine Supernova” artist has been with the trek since it kicked off in February in Palm Springs, Calif., warming up audiences across the U.S. and Canada with performances of songs from her 2023 album The Rise and Fall of a Midwest Princess. Roan will now pass the baton to The Breeders, who will alternate with Remi Wolf and Pinkpantheress as the next tour openers.

Following her shows in Boston, Rodrigo is now headed to New York City for a four-night stint at Madison Square Garden starting Friday (April 5). On her first-ever arena tour, the former High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star has been performing tracks from her debut and sophomore albums, 2021’s Sour and 2023’s Guts, both of which topped the Billboard 200.
