Khalid has recently performed at the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, CT for the Roxy tour, which he named after the dog that he adopted from a Los Angeles animal shelter.For every one dollar from a ticket that is purchased, will be given to local animal shelters on each tour stop. There was a girl in the audience that fainted, not only did Khalid stop singing to ask if she was okay but offered his water.
