XSCAPE TO REUNITE FOR FIRST LIVE SHOW AT THE 2017 ESSENCE FESTIVAL

Time Inc.’s (NYSE: TIME) 2017 ESSENCE Festival® presented by Coca-Cola®, now among the largest consumer live events in the nation, announced today that beloved R&B quartet XSCAPE will kickoff its comeback tour at the Festival, for the group’s first full live show in over 15 years. The group is slated to perform on Sunday, July 2 – a night headlined by Festival first-timer Chance the Rapper, along with Master P, Solange and more – at the Superdome in New Orleans, LA.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the return of Xscape than in New Orleans with our fans at the world famous, Essence Festival,” the group said in a statement. “Essence Fest is so much more than a music festival, it’s a celebration of culture, music and entertainment. We are excited and honored to be included in an incredible line up of artists and performers, including the living legend, ‪Diana Ross!”

XSCAPE, who recently announced the reunion of all four original members Kandi Burruss, LaTocha Scott, Tamika Scott and Tameka “Tiny” Harris, will perform a full set from their chart-topping portfolio of classic R&B staples in one of the Festival’s four intimate Superlounges.
