JoJo Siwa is a social media celebrity with hit songs, a massive following and a colorful style adopted by many young girls.

She’s also a teen girl from Omaha.

But this year, Siwa’s going all over the world on a concert tour, which will stop at Baxter Arena on Aug. 6 and Pinnacle Bank Arena on Aug. 24.

Tickets for the Omaha show are on sale now. Tickets for the Lincoln date go on sale at noon April 12 via Ticketmaster.

Siwa, 15, was born in Omaha to Tom and Jess Siwa.

She appeared on two seasons of “Dance Moms” before appearing in multiple shows and movies on Nickelodeon. She also has a massive social media following, with more than 9 million subscribers on YouTube and more than 8 million followers on Instagram.

Siwa’s love of bright colors, glitter and big hair bows prompted the launch of multiple lines of accessories, clothes, books and toys. You might have seen her face plastered all over products at Target and Walmart.

Released in 2017, her pop song “Boomerang” became a massive hit, earning more than 680 million views on YouTube and a platinum certification. Siwa’s new EP, “Celebrate,” will be released April 12 with the songs “It’s Time To Celebrate,” “#1U,” “Worldwide Party” and “Bop!”
