JAMES BLAKE ANNOUNCES VINCE STAPLES & MOSES SUMNEY AS SUPPORT FOR NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR
NEW YORK, NY (August 31, 2016)- GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist JAMES BLAKE has announced that Vince Staples and Moses Sumney will join him for select dates on his recently announced Fall headlining tour. Staples will join the New York and Los Angeles dates while Sumney joins all dates minus Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. Tickets are available now HERE.
BLAKE hits the road beginning September 23 at House of Blues in Dallas, TX and will then make stops in major cities across the country, wrapping up the tour at The Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on October 20. Full tour routing is below.
BLAKE is no stranger to working with Vince Staples, having recently lent his production talents for two tracks on Staples’ latest EP, “Prima Donna”. Staples also recently appeared at Glastonbury with BLAKE on a version of his track “Timeless” from his critically acclaimed third full-length offering, The Colour In Anything [Republic Records]—which is out now. Get it HERE.
BLAKE’s touch can be felt throughout the modern music landscape. He lent his inimitable voice and production to “Forward” on Beyoncé’s chart-dominating #1 blockbuster Lemonade. In addition, he co-wrote the opener “Pray You Catch Me.” Blake has also recently collaborated with Frank Ocean, both on The Colour In Anything and on Ocean’s latest offering Blond.
Following the release of 2013’s Overgrown, BLAKE garnered a “Best New Artist” nomination at the 2014 GRAMMY® Awards, and he received a nod for “British Male Solo Artist” at the 2014 BRIT Awards. He’s graced the stage at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, and countless other festivals as well as performing sold out headline tours.
