Grammy Award-nominated R&B artist and singer, songwriter Leon Bridges has announced his fall 2016 tour dates. The tour is scheduled to kick off in Burlington, VT on September 8th, and touches down in a slew of major cities across North America (please see dates below) before concluding on October 2nd in Richmond, VA. As always, the Texas native’s seven-piece band will join him on the fall trek. Additional tour dates are expected to be announced, so fans should check LeonBridges.com for up to date information.
The artist presale (pw: river) starts today, February 8th at 12:00 pm EST, with tickets for the tour going on sale to the public February 12th at 12:00 pm local. Fans can check with local box offices for availability and pricing.
Support comes from English singer, songwriter and guitarist Lianne La Havas. Her Grammy Award–nominated second album, Blood, was released by Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records in the US last summer to critical acclaim. La Havas first came to international attention with her highly praised 2012 debut Is Your Love Big Enough?, which won Album of the Year at iTunes UK as well as Barclaycard Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Best Album nominations. “I’m so excited to go on the road with Leon because I am a fan! It will also be a great chance to see many parts of the USA that I’ve not yet had the pleasure of visiting,” she says.
Intense demand to see the compelling singer/songwriter’s live show has been overwhelming since the release of his universally hailed, Grammy Award-nominated debut album Coming Home (available at smarturl.it/ComingHomeiT), released via Columbia Records on June 23, 2015. The Coming Home deluxe edition features five never-before-released songs from the Coming Home sessions, including: “There She Goes,” “Daisy Mae,” “Mississippi Kisses,” “Here in My Arms,” and “Outta Line”.
The fall tour announcement comes on the heels of Bridges current sold out Spring 2015 tour as well as last year’s sold out fall run, which was his first-ever full length North American headlining tour and included The Apollo Theatre.
