Jill Scott, Tyrese, Babyface, & New Edition will swing through four cities this holiday season for the second annual Holiday Jam Concert Series. Along with those four outstanding artists, Philly, D.C., Detroit, and Hampton, VA will also see the likes of SWV, Jazmine Sullivan, and Black Alley Band to support.
The tour will kick off on November 28th in Philly and wrap up on Dec. 12 in Detroit, Michigan.
Shawn Gee of Maverick Management and Geoff Gordon from Live Nation conceptualized the idea, which is designed to elevate and celebrate the genre of R&B.
Gee stated, “We noticed the success and phenomenal growth of multi-act radio concerts platforms over the last decade. The concept works so well in the pop and hip-hop genres; we are certain it will be successful in the R&B space as well.” He continued, “The vision is to continue to grow the platform, expanding to 12- 15 markets, creating a platform that showcases the R&B superstar, while at the same time gives much needed exposure to some of the emerging acts in the space.”
