Jill Scott announces ‘Who is Jill Scott? Words & Sounds Vol. 1’ 23rd anniversary tour
After the 20th anniversary tour of Jill Scott’s chart-topping album, “Who Is Jill Scott?: Words and Sounds Vol I,” was forced to end prematurely due to the pandemic, it will resume.
Scott has announced that she will be back on the road next year for shows during which she will play the album in its entirety, including her hits like “Gettin’ in the Way,” “A Long Walk” and more.
The tour, produced by Live Nation Urban, will play in more than 20 markets across the country. Scott will also have special multi-show residencies over Mother’s Day weekend at MGM National Harbor in Washington, DC and at The MET Philadelphia in Scott’s hometown of Philadelphia. This is the first time the North Philadelphia natives will play there.
The Philadelphia stop will feature a fundraiser at the Arden Theater in support of Scott’s nonprofit, the Blues Babe Foundation.
“My band and I were so excited three years ago, but that Covid shut us down,” Scott said in a press release. “Now, we out! come see me Feel again. Relive your favorite moments. You’d be ready to settle down and get on with it?!? There is so much love here.”
Scott released his debut record in July 2000. It became a double platinum album and earned her several Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist (2001), Best R&B Album (2001), and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for three consecutive years (2001). -2003).
Pre-sales for Scott’s tour will begin on December 6.
The tour kicks off in February at Bell Auditorium in Augusta, GA.
