Come next month, the reclusive R&B artist named D’Angelo will be showing face on U.S. soil for a special performance.
The Grammy Awarding winning singer-songwriter will headline his first concert at New York's iconic Apollo Theater, nearly 25 years after he made his debut as an amateur on the same stage.
D’Angelo won Amateur Night at the Apollo when he was 16 years old — he used the prize money from his winnings to purchase music equipment, and recorded his debut album, Brown Sugar. The rest is history!
On February 15th fans will relive D’Angelo’s monumental moment as he and his band, The Vanguard, take the stage for the one-night-only gig, and perform songs from their newly released album, Black Messiah, his first project in 14 years.
Prior to the upcoming show, D'Angelo and The Vanguard will be the special musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" on January 31st.
In related news, the Soul/R&B veteran and his band are also gearing up for a 13-stop UK tour, which will take flight on February 11 in Zurich, Switzerland and make stops in London, Germany, and Sweden before wrapping March 7 in Brussels, Belgium.
The tour is expected to come back to the U.S.
