D’Angelo & The Vanguard will play shows in Sydney, Melbourne, and Wellington

Earlier today we reported the huge news that soul icon D’Angelo will be augmenting his appearance at Byron Bay Bluesfest (Thursday; Saturday) with a performance at the Sydney Opera House as D’Angelo & The Vanguard. Now it seems that Sydney isn’t the only city in our part of the world that will be getting a set from the incomparable singer, with performance scheduled for both Melbourne (for which he did a Soulfest sideshow last year) and Wellington, New Zealand.

The man who redefined contemporary soul in the 90’s alongside the likes of Erykah Badu and Maxwell has long remained one of the most sought after, illusive, and acclaimed singers of our time. His latest album, Black Messiah, continued what was started with Brown Sugar and Voodoo, carrying D’Angelo’s evolution as a musician with thoughtful, provocative works which picked him up numerous nods for next year’s Grammy Awards.

Black Messiah was made in collaboration with D’Angelo’s current touring band, The Vanguard, which is made up of accomplished and highly regarded musicians, making it a supergroup of sorts.

D’Angelo will first head to Wellington’s TSB Bank Arena where he will perform with his band on Thursday 17th March. They will then be performing at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on Saturday 19th March.

Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday 11th December at 10am (AEDT)
