Raphael Saadiq announces 2020 dates in support of new album, 'Jimmy Lee'
YouTube

In his first album in nearly a decade, Raphael Saadiq has released an intimate masterpiece in Jimmy Lee. The album surrounds the concept of his brother's untimely death after contracting HIV and overdosing on heroin, as well as Saadiq's own personal struggles with socio-political issues such as mass incarceration. Songs like "The World is Drunk," "Sinners Prayer," and "Glory to the Veins" are uncharted territory for the R&B legend, unmasking a vulnerability we've never seen from Raphael Saadiq. 

Now, with the album in rotation and sparking conversation about addiction, mental health, and the justice system, the legendary singer/songwriter is preparing to tour in support of the release during the 2020 Jimmy Lee Tour. 

After some dates across the pond in countries like Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium - The Jimmy Lee Tour will head stateside in late January. Saadiq will be making stops in cities like Orlando (Tickets), Norfolk (Tickets), New York (Tickets), and more.

Pre-sale tickets for Raphael Saadiq's Jimmy Lee Tour will be available starting Sept. 17 with tickets going on sale to the general public Sept. 20 (Tickets).
