Nelly Furtado To Get ‘Loose’ On 17 City U.S. Tour

International superstar Nelly Furtado will bring her Get Loose Tour to the United States for 17 concerts, starting May 30 in Hollywood, Fla., close by where she recorded most of her five-million-selling hit album “Loose.” The Get Loose Tour started in Europe with 23 shows over five weeks. The next leg crossed her native Canada, starting in Victoria, B.C. where the mayor’s office proclaimed March 21 as Nelly Furtado Day. (“Loose” garnered the Victoria-born, Toronto-based Furtado the biggest-selling album in Canada for 2006.) Furtado will be backed by four dancers and her six-piece band, including Toronto rapper Saukrates on percussion who also fills in for “Loose” producer Timbaland, from whistling on “All Good Things (Come to an End),” to rapping on the duo’s monster hit, “Promiscuous.” Saukrates will also double as the opening act. “For the last eight years I’ve never really traveled with a full production of lights, visuals and dancers — and this tour I’ve got all of it,” the 28-year-old singer enthused to Sun Media in Victoria. “I’ve spent eight years building my musicality so that now I can rely on that, but then I also have a great backup up there with all the production, which is a treat for me. “The show is inspired by Miami. There are palm trees on the set, white palm trees and a white stage, and it’s got a little bit of drama to it. I think the show’s a little more sensual or sophisticated, but I keep the primary focus on the songs.” “Loose” debuted at #1 when it was released June 20, 2006 and has spawned four worldwide hit singles: “Promiscuous,” “Maneater,” “Say It Right,” “All Good Things (Come to an End),” with “In God’s Hands” waiting in the wings for its turn in the spotlight. “Loose” has been awarded platinum and gold sales in 28 countries so far.
