After dropping his latest album as a surprise, D’Angelo will now be headlining his first show since the album’s release at New York City’s Apollo Theater.
Along with his band, the Vanguard, the “Brown Sugar” singer will be headlining his first show at the legendary theater to perform tracks from his Black Messiah album, which was inspired by the police brutality against African American men. D and the Vanguard will be hitting the stage on Feb. 7th with tickets go on sale Jan. 21st. This will be his one performance on the stateside before he heads to Europe to embark on the Second Coming Tour this spring.
The Virginia native isn’t a stranger to the Apollo stage though. He won Amateur Night back in 1991 at the tender age of 16 after performing Johnny Gill’s “Rub You The Right Way.”
