It's almost time for the holidays so what better way to usher them in than a concert with some of your favorite R&B singers? Jill Scott, New Edition, Babyface, Tyrese, SWV, Jazmine Sullivan and more are making their way to a handful of cities for the Holiday Jam Concert Series. Presented by Live Nation, the second annual concert series has partnered with iHeart Media, Soul Train Music and Radio One in key markets to bring the biggest stars in R&B to music lovers between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The first show will be on November 28th at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center in association with local iHeartMedia urban AC station WDAS-FM. Washington, DC will get to jam with the artists too, sans Tyrese and Jazmine, but Black Alley will add some go-go to the party. Jilly from Philly, New Edition and Babyface keep the tour going in Hampton and Detroit on December 4th and 5th.
Holiday Jam was launched back in 2014 in Philadelphia and has grown into a four-date traveling series. Celebrating legends and introducing new talent, the series hopes to give the audience a 100% R&B showcase. Besides the current line-up, artists like Kem, Common, Ledesi, Joe, Avery*Sunshine and Faith Evans have previously jammed for the holidays. The series hopes to expand to 12-15 markets, but until then, if you need a little more convincing check out the 2015 dates and performers below and head over to LiveNation.com to purchase your tickets.
