Erykah Badu Announces 25-City North American Tour With Yasiin Bey

Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Erykah Badu is set to return to touring after a nearly two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The soulful artist, known for her sultry voice and genre-bending sound, has announced the "Unfollow Me Tour," which will feature her performing across North America alongside rapper, actor and activist Yasiin Bey, also known as Mos Def.

Badu has captivated audiences for over two decades with her ethereal vocals and powerful lyrics. She has released five studio albums to critical acclaim, including her most recent work, the 2015 mixtape "But You Caint Use My Phone," which showcases her signature blend of soul, funk, and hip-hop influences.

Bey, best known for his socially conscious lyrics, has released several critically acclaimed albums since his debut in the late 1990s. He and Badu have collaborated on several tracks over the years, including "Love of My Life (An Ode to Hip-Hop)" and "The Blast."

Badu's return to touring is particularly special as it coincides with the 20th anniversary of her third album, "Worldwide Underground." Produced by independent promoter Outback Presents, the 25-city tour will begin in San Antonio, Texas, on June 11, with stops in Denver, Boston, Las Vegas, Seattle, Nashville and other cities before culminating on July 23 in her hometown of Dallas.

Last year, Badu performed at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! event at the Lena Horne Bandshell in Prospect Park. However, the Unfollow Me Tour will be her first North American trek since 2019, when she performed in several theaters around the country.

Pre-sales for the tour begin on April 20 through Ticketmaster. See the full list of tour dates below.
