For the first time ever in musical history, US R&B icons Joe, Brandy and Dru Hill will share the UK stage to perform an exclusive three-city concert tour.
Kicking off its rare UK tour on Friday, September 27, 2019 at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London, the R&B veterans will perform live over the weekend on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at the O2 Academy in Birmingham followed by its closing show on Sunday 29th September 2019 at the Manchester Academy in Manchester.
The R&B crooner and Grammy-nominated songwriter, Joe, is definitely one of the favorites for diehard UK R&B fans.
Entering the R&B and New Jack Swing era in the early ‘90’s, Joe’s up-tempo and soul hitting hits from his debut album Everything in 1993 and follow-up album, All That I Am in 1997; plus, his most successful three times platinum selling international album My Name is Joe in 2000, earned him his position as one of the Kings of R&B.
Returning to the UK stage for the first time in three years, Grammy, MTV, and MOBO Award-winning singer/songwriter Brandy is one of the most successful international female R&B artists of the ’90s. Bursting onto the scenes in 1994 with her Billboard No.1 breakthrough self- titled album and hit debut single, “I Wanna Be Down”; R&B’s newcomer Brandy swarmed the charts selling over six million copies worldwide and charting the top 5 positions on the UK charts.
The names Sisqo, Nokio, Tao, Smoke E. Digglera and Digital Black making up the multi-platinum selling group Dru Hill definitely need no introduction to UK fans! Known for their soul, hip hop and gospel enthused sound, Dru Hill took the charts by storm with five top 10 singles -“Tell Me,” “In My Bed,” “Never Make A Promise” and “5 Steps” off their debut self-titled album Dru Hill. The group’s follow up album Enter the Dru featured their most successful international song to date with “How Deep Is Your Love,” which also appeared on the soundtrack to the 1998 box office hit film, Rush Hour.
With lead vocalist, Sisqo, venturing off for a more commercial R&B solo career, the triple threat artist released his number one hit records ‘Incomplete’ and the quintuple-platinum selling single‘Thong Song’. The group continued to go from strength to strength with a total of four chart-topping albums, nine top 10 singles including two hit features on “Big Bad Mamma” with Foxy Brown and the “Wild Wild West” with Will Smith plus their upcoming fifth studio album The 2ndComing.
It’s time to celebrate 25+ years of legendary hits from the kings and queen of R&B and Hip-Hop Soul this September!
