Erykah Badu is Bringing her Ethereal Black Girl Magic to a City Near You
Our eclectic soul sister is back.
Earlier today, Erykah Badu announced a tour, which will kick off at Birmingham, Alabama’s Funk Fest this month. The “Badu Vs. Everythang Tour” will hit several festivals including FYF Fest on July 22 in Los Angeles, Calif. and Meadows Festival on Sept. 16 in Queens, New York. The R&B Legend is also set to take her talents global this summer with plans to stop in Paris, London, Italy, and ending off with a series of performances in Japan this fall.
Most recently, she celebrated her classic debut Baduizm’s 20th anniversary and also reissued the album on vinyl. In 2015, she dropped But You Caint Use My Phone.
Her every-major-city trek begins May 6th. Check out the tour dates and the bomb cover art below.
