North American fans, get ready for a kiss from a rose, along with plenty of soul. Seal has a new U.S. and Canada tour planned for this summer.
The British soul/R&B singer-songwriter’s setlist will feature both fan favorites and tunes from his eighth studio effort, Soul 2. Released in November 2011 through Reprise Records, the follow-up to 2008’s Soul is packed full of more soul classics including “Let’s Stay Together,” “What’s Going On,” “Back Stabbers,” “I’ll Be Around” and “Lean On Me.” When it came to picking a producer for the album, Seal once again teamed up with Trevor Horn (Seal, Seal II and Human Being) and David Foster (Soul, Commitment).
“I love my fans and I love the connection I have with them when I perform live,” Seal said. “I can’t wait to bring this show to North America.”
The tour begins July 6 with an appearance at Montreal Jazz Festival at Montreal’s Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier.
U.S. dates are booked from coast to coast including New York City’s Beacon Theatre July 17-18; Cleveland Heights, Ohio, at Cain Park July 21; Tulsa, Okla., at the Brady Theater Aug. 1; Las Vegas’ Pearl Concert Theater Aug. 4; and Los Angeles at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live Aug. 7.
Last stop is Aug. 11 in Santa Rosa, Calif., at the Wells Fargo Center For The Arts.
Tickets are available beginning Friday, April 6.
