Voulez-Vous to See Labelle on Tour?

labell_nov.jpgThe recently reunited sixties and seventies soul super-group Labelle has announced some upcoming dates for the "Back To Now" tour, the group's first since 1977. This is far too long a time for them to have been absent from the stage. Nona Hendryx, Sarah Dash, and Patti Labelle didn't need alter-egos to bring the fierceness--they were among its originators. This tour comes on the tails of the release of Back to Now, their first in over three decades. Tis the season to gift concert tickets to your favorite auntie who still looks wistfully at that silver jumpsuit she wore in homage to Labelle all those years ago but can no longer dream of fitting into. Or, you know, yourself. View the dates after the bounce! 

  • Friday, December 19 - Apollo Theater, NYC
  • Saturday, January 10 - Chicago Theater, Chicago
  • Saturday, January 17 - Taj Mahal, Atlantic City
  • Sunday, January 18 - The Fox Theater, Detroit
  • Thursday, January 29 - Nokia Theater, Los Angeles
  • Friday, January 30 - Paramount Theater, Oakland
  • Friday, February 13 - Constitution Hall, Washington DC
  • Saturday, February 14 - Civic Center, Atlanta

Here's a reminder of the goodness that was to entice you to experience the goodness that will always be Labelle.

  1. ooh! i'd love to go see them in the D. i'm definitely going to try to cop tickets. nice swipe at Beyonce, too.

  2. I hope they're adding dates and will come to Florida
    So few tours come through here. We're the 3rd or 4th most populous state, so it's not as though we're a backwater.
