Blood Orange Announces 2020 Tour Dates With Tei Shi, Including A Radio City Show
From scoring the critically acclaimed film "Queen & Slim," slaying Coachella, touring with Tyler, The Creator and releasing the Angel's Pulse mixtape, Devonte Hynes, a.k.a. Blood Orange, has had a triumphant 2019.
Given his tour announcement today, which includes a debut headline show on March 20, at New York City's legendary Radio City Music Hall, it looks like 2020 will be another great year for the "Hope" singer.
Before the Brooklyn-based artist takes over Radio City, he will begin his trek on March 7 at Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival in Okeechobee, Fla., followed by two nights in Atlanta on March 9 and 10 and a show at Chicago's historic The Vic Theatre on March 13. He will also perform in Detroit, Toronto and Washington, D.C. before closing things out with a bang back home in New York.
Other than the festival set, all dates are Blood Orange headline shows. His friend and collaborator Tei Shi (they've collabed on his 2018 single "Hope," her 2019 one "Even If It Hurts") will support all of his headline dates. As noted by Brooklyn Vegan, the March show will not be the first time Hynes has played Radio City—he opened for Florence & The Machine there way back in 2012.
In his Instagram post this morning announcing the big news, he noted there are "more dates 2 come." In the words of the late, great Zapp founder Roger Troutman, on behalf of other West Coast Blood Orange fans, don't forget; "California knows how to party."
Tickets for all Blood Orange headline dates go on sale this Friday, Dec. 13 at 11 a.m.—visit his website for more info.
