Raphael Saadiq Lines Up Spring Gigs

The singer / songwriter / producer announces a string of May engagements taking him to places like Boston, Baltimore, Atlanta and maybe even your town.

Saadiq will be touring in support of his fifth studio album, Stone Rollin’, which drops March 22 on Columbia Records. But you don’t have to wait a couple of months for a taste. The title track landed on Triple A radio stations this month and “Good Man” will hit Urban Adult Radio Feb. 8. Both tunes are currently streaming from the artist’s website.

Let’s talk tour. While March 15 in Dallas at House Of Blues is a new listing, previously announced shows include New Orleans at House Of Blues March 19 and Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival April 16. Saadiq also has a U.K. gig lined up for the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London April 28.

The May journey begins in Minneapolis at First Avenue May 9, plays Boston’s House Of Blues May 16 and touches down in Washington, D.C., for a show at the 9:30 Club May 20. Other cities on the routing include Baltimore (May 21), Raleigh (May 23), Charlotte (May 24), Atlanta (May 25), Orlando (May 27) and Tampa (May 28).
