Charles Bradley announces 2011 tour dates

on June 09, 2011, 4:21pm

It all started with a James Brown concert in 1962. Fourteen-year-old Charles Bradley went with his sister to The Apollo to see the legendary performer, and from there Bradley founded his ambition to become a soulman. Of course, back then, all he had was a broomstick to practice all the mic tricks Brown had perfected, whereas now Bradley has become an icon of soul himself with the moniker “The Screaming Eagle of Soul.” Thus, Bradley makes for a staple to any festival, which is highly evidenced in his appearance in over 20 upcoming festivals across the globe. The Godfather would be proud.

In all, Bradley has booked over 30 dates for his international tour in support of his latest album, No Time For Dreaming, which dropped in May. Starting in Paris at the Solidays Festival, Bradley will continue on his trek to the major countries of the European Union before heading back to the States to be part of the “What’s Going On” tribute featured at the Hollywood Bowl. Janelle Monáe, Rickey Minor, Sharon Jones, and Stevie Wonder will join him on stage for the celebration of soul across genres and generations as part of Los Angeles’ Global Soul presentation.

Naturally, it doesn’t stop there. Bradley also plans to perform at Osheaga Festival, Outside Lands Music Festival, Sunset Junction Street Fair, Bumbershoot, MusicFest NW, and Austin City Limits Music Festival, while making stops in Quebec, Washington, Utah, and Colorado along the way.
