Vocal powerhouse Ledisi and Gospel superstar Kirk Franklin have teamed up to co-headline “The Rebel, The Soul & The Saint Tour.” The two will interweave an amazing show that will touch your heart, body, and soul.
The 27-city tour will kick off October 25 in Oakland, CA and stop in major cities across the country including New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Nashville and more, before culminating December 2 in Richmond, VA. Supporting acts will be PJ Morton and MAJOR in select cities.
Both Ledisi and Kirk Franklin will be performing various fan favorites as well as songs from Kirk’s current album Losing My Religion and a few songs from Ledisi’s upcoming album Let Love Rule. This tour will mark the first time that both artists have been on the road together performing for adoring fans.
“This tour is non-traditional on purpose,” says Ledisi. “The goal is to not alienate anyone, bringing all people together and to perform music that inspires and reflect the human experience. This is an event for Music as a whole. That is why it is called ‘The Rebel, The Soul, and The Saint.’” She also goes on to say, “How awesome will it be to see all these wonderful people on stage, fearlessly expressing life, spirit, and LOVE through music. I am looking forward to this tour with the great Kirk Franklin.”
In addition, Kirk Franklin says, “In this climate the world definitely needs to be reminded of the power of love. From God’s heart to the human touch, Ledisi and I are excited to bring the power of love to the people!”
Ledisi, who is a nine-time GRAMMY nominee, is gearing up to release her new album Let Love Rule on September 22. VIP presale tickets are available now, and general public tickets will be available on Tuesday (Aug. 29) in most cities.
