Raphael Saadiq Kicks Off Summer Tour This Week Including Pitchfork Festival, NYC, DC & More

Raphael Saadiq will kick off his first headline tour in several years this week and his longtime friend and Lucy Pearl bandmate Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) will support him on several dates of the summer run. Flint, MI musician & activist Tunde Olaniran will also join the pair at Detroit’s MOCAD this Sunday. In addition to his headline dates, musician and producer Saadiq is set to perform at Chicago’s Pitchfork Festival (read ‘The Meaning of Soul Music According to Raphael Saadiq’ via the 2017 Pitchfork here).
