The pandemic sat everybody down in the house for most of 2020 and the first few months of 2021, but no industry was affected more than the music industry. Performances, gigs and tours got canceled left and right, and artists had to fall back, think quickly and pivot to the virtual arena. One such artist who made the most out of her pandemic downtime was Ledisi who had a whole album, The Wild Card, to promote. In the midst of the madness that was last year, she performed a couple of virtual concerts, one of which got packaged up as the live album, Ledisi Live At The Troubadour, this year. That release reminded fans just what we were missing with none of her live shows in our lives. But that’s all going to change this autumn. The GRAMMY Award-winner (it feels so good to write that) is bouncing back in a major way with the announcement of The Wild Card: US Tour 2021.
Ledisi will return to the stage to embark on a 22-city tour that will take her across the country this October and November. The Wild Card: US Tour 2021 will begin on October 13th in Austin, Texas at the Paramount Theatre before hitting popular markets such as Houston, New Orleans, Atlantic City, Indianapolis, Cleveland and Atlanta. Led will wrap things up before Thanksgiving with a show in Durham, North Carolina on November 18th at The Carolina Theatre. The singer-songwriter won’t be alone on this journey; she’s bringing fellow independent artists Kenyon Dixon and STOUT along for the wild ride. Dixon will open for Ledisi for the first 18 shows of the tour, with STOUT holding it down for the final four.
Tickets for Ledisi’s The Wild Card: US Tour 2021 go on sale on Friday, June 18th via Ticketmaster, and VIP meet and greet packages are available as well. Click here for more information.
