André 3000 has announced a run of intimate live shows in support of his critically charged instrumental album, New Blue Sun, released in November on Epic Records. Co-produced by André and lauded multi-instrumentalist Carlos Niño, and featuring the playing of Nate Mercereau, Surya Botofasina, Deantoni Parks, Diego Gaeta, Matthewdavid, V.C.R, Diego Gaeta, Jesse Peterson, and Mia Doi Todd, New Blue Sun is an entirely instrumental album; a celebratory piece of work in the form of a living, breathing, improvised, aural organism.
The tour will kick off on January 29 in Brooklyn, NY followed by a three night residency at the legendary Blue Note Jazz Club in Manhattan, where André and his collaborators will play two shows per night. They’ll make stops in Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco before finishing with a five night stint at The Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever in Los Angeles. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, January 24 at 10am local time HERE.
