Erykah Badu to Tour This Fall

30th July 2021 | Category: Concerts

Erykah Badu has announced a selection of tour dates slated for September to October 2021.

The revered artist is kicking off her series of performances at the 2021 Riverfront Jazz Festival in Dallas, Texas on September 3. She will then stop by areas like Atlantic City, New York City, Sugar Land, Indianapolis, Phoenix and San Diego. The 18-day run will conclude on October 30 in Atlanta. Badu will also be making a few festival appearances, including Lights On Festival in Concord and both Austin City Limits weekends.

The singer’s latest release is 2015’s But You Caint Use My Phone mixtape, which garnered positive reviews from outlets such as Pitchfork, Spin, and Rolling Stone.

In a July 2020 interview, Badu referred to herself as “the laziest artist probably in Dallas” as she touched on what she thought about touring. 

“I didn’t miss it,” she said in reference to live shows. “I’ve always wanted to perform from my bed at home. I’m the laziest artist probably in Dallas. I never wanted to do the packing and going through the car and luggage and the hotel and, ‘What’s the password? What’s the internet?’ You get tired after years and years of doing it, you know?”

Badu, who typically spends 8 months out of the year on the road, added,

“I enjoyed the moment when the audience and the artist become one living, breathing organism, when the band and I are locked in. I miss that synergy and energy between me and the audience. But I found a new way to express that, and it doesn’t take its place. It just evolved it to another place.”
