Fans of one-man musical wonder Jacob Collier will be able to watch him perform live in cities all over the world next Spring. The talented multi-instrumentalist is touring on the Djesse World Tour to support his four-volume album series, Djesse. The second installment, Djesse Vol. 2, dropped last July.
The Spring 2020 Djesse World Tour kicks off on April 1 in Berlin, Germany and will make stops in major U.S. cities including Seattle (Tickets), San Francisco (Tickets), Englewood (Tickets), Detroit (Tickets), Cleveland (Tickets), Dallas (Tickets), and more.
Select presales will begin on Nov. 13 and 14. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Nov. 15. Premium seating options and VIP Packages will be available to purchase for select show. A limited quantity of select VIP Packages includes one general admission ticket, VIP entry into the venue, a custom-designed Djesse Vol. 2 journal, Jacob Collier tote bag, an autographed logic session and a commemorative VIP laminate.
Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Jacob Collier combines elements of jazz, EDM, soul, and folk music with his recordings. The number of musical instruments he has mastered is mind-blowing. He can play electric and double bass, drums, guitar, mandolin, keyboard, and autoharp, to name a few.
Whether he’s arranging, composing and performing his own original tracks like “With the Love in My Heart” or doing a creative cover of well-known songs like “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles or “All Night Long” by Lionel Richie, Collier is constantly looking for ways to push musical boundaries. His fans justifiably love him for it.
He explained the title of his four-record set, Djesse, in an interview with NPR saying, “Djesse, essentially, is this spirit. It's this sort of character, very much with some childlike energy, which permeates all of this music. ... The first album represents kind of pre-dawn, to that moment at the end of the morning when everything's very much alive. It's a mixture of youth and things being very early and very young, and also the sort of explosion that happens when you begin a journey.”
In addition to crafting complex musical arrangements, Collier puts his own stamp on the concept of his one-man live shows with his cutting-edge, MIT-crafted, live audiovisual music performance system. It’s no wonder that live audiences love watching Collier in action with his own set of music tech tools.
Overall, like listening to his records and absorbing his compositions’ fascinating layers, watching Collier perform his tracks live is like witnessing the dawn of a new kind of music fusion era begin to break.
