Soul/R&B Ledisi and Gospel superstar Kirk Franklin have joined forces for the co-headline “The Rebel, The Soul & The Saint Tour.” The 27-city trek will kick off on October 25 in Oakland, CA at Paramount Theatre and wrap on December 2 in Richmond, VA at The Altria Theatre. The tour will make stops in major cities across the country including New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Sacramento, Chicago, Houston, Nashville and more.
“This tour is non-traditional on purpose. The goal is to not alienate anyone, bringing all people together and to perform music that inspires and reflect the human experience” Ledisi says in a statement. “This is an event for Music as a whole. That is why it is called ‘The Rebel, The Soul, and The Saint.'”
She continued: “How awesome will it be to see all these wonderful people on stage, fearlessly expressing life, spirit, and LOVE through music. I am looking forward to this tour with the great Kirk Franklin.”
Kirk Franklin adds, “In this climate, the world definitely needs to be reminded of the power of love. From God’s heart to the human touch, Ledisi and I are excited to bring the power of love to the people!”
R&B/Soul artist and Maroon 5 band member PJ Morton will open the tour.
Both Ledisi and Kirk Franklin will be performing various fan favorites as well as songs from their latest albums: Kirk’s current album, Losing My Religion, and Ledisi’s upcoming album, Let Love Rule, due September 22.
VIP presale tickets are available on Monday, August 28 (premium seating, meet & greet, exclusive merchandise) with general public ticketing starting on Tuesday, August 29 in most cities.
