Performer Info

Erykah Badu: Erykah Badu ushered in a new era of soul music in the mid-90s with her earthy vocals and funky beats for which she has been dubbed the "Queen of Neo-Soul". Since debuting in 1997 with her hit single "On & On", Erykah Badu has toured relentlessly, acted, and released several more Platinum records. Erykah Badu tour dates are currently scheduled internationally and she will be stopping by a venue near you. Don't miss a date on the Erykah Badu concert schedule (2011); Use Eventful for info on Erykah Badu tour dates and venues.

Badu released her debut album, Baduzim, in 1997 and scored several R&B hits including "On & On", which won a Grammy in 1998. Badu won another Grammy in 1999 for her collaboration with The Roots on the hauntingly beautiful track "You Got Me". Badu returned in 2000 with Mama's Gun and hit road on the Frustrated Artist Tour, an allusion to the fact that she was suffering from a bout of writer's block. The lack of creativity was short-lived, however, and Badu returned in 2003 with the upbeat Worldwide Underground album which reached #3 on the Billboard 200. Badu embarked on the Worldwide Underground Tour which culminated in an era of productivity for Badu.

In 2007, Badu released New Amerykah Part One (4th World War) and in 2010 she released New Amerykah part Two (Return of the Ankh). In addition to her musical output, Badu is an activist who started the charity, Beautiful Love Incorporated No Profit Development (B.L.I.N.D.), which offers art and culture services to inner-city youth. Join Erykah Badu as she tours the world this 2011. Stay on top of Erykah Badu tour dates and concert schedule information and use Eventful as your concert calendar.
