On Nov. 28, Grammy-winning R&B superstar Miguel announced that he will be hitting the road in early 2018 to support his upcoming album, “War and Leisure,” which drops on Friday, Dec. 1.
The massive North American tour will kick off in Portland on Feb. 22 and end in Berkeley, California, on April 12. Other major dates include Denver on Feb. 28, Chicago on March 5, Detroit on March 9, Toronto on March 12, Boston on March 19, Philadelphia on March 20, New York on March 23, Atlanta on March 27, Houston on April 3 and Dallas on April 4. TDE singer SiR and Miguel’s brother, Nonchalant Savant, will open for him throughout the 34-city endeavor.
Miguel hasn’t released a new record since 2015’s smash, “Wildheart,” but he has already whetted fans’ appetites with the release of “Come Through and Chill,” the first single from “War and Leisure.” The track, which features socially conscious lyrics, reteams the 32-year-old with his “Power Trip” partner, J. Cole. Additional tracks on the album will include “Told You So,” “Pinneapple Skies” and “Sky Walker,” which is a collaboration with Travis Scott.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, the Los Angeles native shared that he had recently become more politically aware and his new record would address “the personal struggle to find our way in the middle of it all.” He also said the songs featured on the album would be “positive.”
Before embarking on his tour, Miguel will play shows in Oakland on Dec. 13 and Phoenix on Dec. 14. Tickets for the “War and Leisure” tour will go on sale on Dec. 4. Presales begin on Nov. 29.
