Today, multi-award-winning artist, songwriter, film & television composer, and producer Raphael Saadiq announced Raphael Saadiq Revisits Tony! Toni! Toné!, the Just Me & You Tour, which will grace stages across the U.S. this fall. The long-awaited return of the Oakland, CA R&B legends launches on Sept 21 in Birmingham, AL, at the BJCC Concert Hall and visits major markets coast-to-coast, rolling through New York, NY, Chicago, IL, Nashville, TN, and Los Angeles, CA, before wrapping the year back in the bay, at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, CA, on Nov 14 and The Masonic in San Francisco on Nov 17.
The tour marks a momentous homecoming as Raphael Saadiq, his brother D’wayne Wiggins and Timothy Christian Riley will perform as Tony! Toni! Toné! for the first time in nearly 25 years. The show will feature classic R&B smashes like “Feels Good,” “Anniversary,” and “It Never Rains (In Southern California), plus brand new material. For this expansive, full-evening performance, Saadiq also taps his own deep catalog, performing tracks from his acclaimed solo albums, the music of his short-lived but beloved R&B supergroup Lucy Pearl, plus the hits he wrote for artists like D’Angelo, Daniel Caesar, Brent Faiyaz, Solange and Beyoncé.
“I've always wanted to put my family back together,” says Saadiq. “Playing with the Tonys again is a thank you to the fans, the Super Tonians, for supporting all my musical efforts. Without those who were with us from Day One, where would I be? But the main reason is that my father, Charlie Wiggins, would've wanted it this way–to see me, D’Wayne and Tim playing together again.”
