Monica, Tevin Campbell, Tamar Braxton and many more R&B veterans will be hitting the road this fall for the R&B Music Experience Tour.
Presented by Global Events Production, the 18-city tour will kick off Oct. 1 in Atlanta, Georgia, at State Farm Arena.
From there, the singers will perform in U.S. cities, including Charlotte, Chicago, Miami, Dallas, New Orleans and Nashville. The tour concludes Dec. 17 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL.
Other R&B acts booked for the tour include 112, Bell Biv DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Dru Hill, Ginuwine, H-Town, Keith Sweat, Next, Raheem DeVaughn, Shai, Silk and Xscape.
While Monica is sure to revisit some of her classic songs and fan favorites, it wouldn’t be a surprise if she performs her latest single “Friends,” which features Ty Dolla $ign. The Tasha Catour-produced song will appear on Monica’s forthcoming album, Trenches.
Of the song, Monica explained, “‘Friends’ is about keeping people in their place and handling your own relationship.”
“Friends” was released nearly a year after Monica shared her Lil Baby-assisted single “Trenches.” Monica isn’t just focused on R&B. The legendary singer also is working on her debut country album titled Open Roads. She enlisted Brandi Carlile to executive produce the album.
“I felt like this was a great time for me to really step into an area that I’ve always admired and loved,” Monica told Billboard about recording a country project. “We’re just getting started, but I have so enjoyed it and been welcomed with open arms.”
