Leon Bridges’ First North America Headlining Adventure

Leon Bridges sets his first North American tour with his name at the top of the ticket – a fall run beginning in mid-October and including stops in New Orleans, Philadelphia, Houston and Los Angeles.  Presales and onsales launch this week.

The up-and-coming singer/songwriter/R&B artist is definitely keeping busy. Although he has a few June gigs in the U.S., Bridges will soon cross the pond for those famous Euro festivals, including England’s Sept. 26, Belgium’s June 28; Norway’s July 3 and Switzerland’s July 12.  Other festivals in the mix are Dublin’s July 17; Suffolk’s July 18 and London’s July 19.

Bridges will have more festivals to play upon returning to the U.S., including k in July and San Francisco’s in August.

All this traveling heralds the coming of his debut album, Coming HomePre-ordering it now via digital retailers gives you a five-song download that includes Bridges’ breakout single/title track.  The disc arrives in physical form on Columbia Records June 23.
