Musiq Soulchild, Kindred The Family Soul & Friends Bring Back GOOD Music On The NuSoul Revival Tour



How many times have people asked when would there be a resurgence of really GOOD music being created that once dominated music? You know, that music that made you stop and really listen to the words (which were audible by the way) and just hit you in your soul.

It seems that some of Neo-Soul’s reigning acts are here to let you know that it’s still alive and well. This announcement comes in the form of the NuSoul Revival Tour, which features Musiq Soulchild, Kindred The Family Soul, Avery*Sunshine, Lyfe Jennings and more. If that list of artists didn’t capture you, maybe the occassional appearance of Dwele, Chrisette Michele, and The Foreign Exchange may make you buy a ticket.

With a start date of February 3rd, in Raleigh, NC, the NuSoul Revival Tour will be a 22-city tour traveling the United States until it wraps up on April 8th in Jacksonville, FL.

Tickets are on sale now via NuSoul Revival Tour’s website starting Friday, November 4th. Get all of the tour date information below.

2015 Essence Music Festival [Featuring Missy Elliott, Usher and more]

It’s that time again to find out who exactly will be taking over NOLA this 4th of July weekend. That’s right, one of the biggest national musical events, the annual Essence Music Festival, slated for July 2nd – 5th, has recently released who will be headlining their concert series.

This year, a lot of usual festival goers were up in the air about whether or not they wanted to go to “the party with a purpose” simply because the organizers were dragging their feet with announcing not only who the headliners would be, but who would be performing PERIOD!

Last year’s festival brought some huge names in music, with the likes of Prince, Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Lionel Richie, Janelle Monae and many more taking the stages, so get into who will be rocking the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this year…is it anybody that you want to see?

Headliners include Festival first-timer, Kendrick Lamar and Festival favorite, Mary J. Blige, Usher, and Missy Elliott

Also confirmed to perform at the 2015 ESSENCE Festival nighttime concerts at the Superdome include Erykah Badu, India.Arie, Common, Floetry, Sevyn Streeter, Kelly Price, Lianne La Havas, Elle Varner, Esperanza Spalding, Raheem DeVaughn, Mali Music, Eric Roberson, Teedra Moses, Avery*Sunshine, Bilal, Goapele, Robert Glasper, Trombone Shorty, Kool Moe Dee, Doug E. Fresh, Mystikal, Slick Rick, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Nico &Vinz, SZA, Dee-1, Tonya Bond Cannon, Leon Bridges, Andra Day, Kindred The Family Soul, Tweet, Jeff Bradshaw and Tank & The Bangas.

Kevin Hart, Trey Songz, and Lecrae will headline the festival’s opening “Now Playing” concert, a sort of soft opening, on Thursday, July 2. The festival first presented a smaller Thursday night event, with reduced seating and only one stage, in 2014. Hart first performed on the main Essence stage in 2012.

Acts will continuously be added to this already impressive list, so keep it locked on Concert Daily for all the updates. You can purchase tickets on Ticketmaster.
