Two decades into his career, LL recently released his 11th studio album, Todd Smith, will start things off with an appearance at the History of PGC Concert in Washington, D.C., June 23, followed by the Power 106 Powerhouse concert in Anaheim, Calif.

After performing at the Essence Music Festival in Houston July 1, LL will hit the road on a headlining tour of theatres and casinos including Denver’s Ogden Theatre, Chicago’s House of Blues and Baltimore’s Rams Head Live.

The itinerary includes two-night stands at House of Blues in West Hollywood, Calif., and Niagara Fallsview Casino at Niagara Falls, Ontario.

The tour finale will take place at New York’s Randalls Island August 19.

Todd Smith hit stores in April and has been certified gold by the RIAA. More than 2,000 fans attended LL’s sold-out record release show at NYC’s Nokia Theatre Times Square April 28.
