Monica, Tevin Campbell, Tamar Braxton and More Tapped for R&B Music Experience Tour

Patrick Swanson / September 20,2022

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.” 

As for Braxton, she recently announced that her upcoming album will have to be re-recorded. In a statement posted on Instagram, Braxton revealed that the album she was working on vanished in thin air.

“Trust me putting out new music hasn’t been easy for me- although an ENTIRE project was ready and then vanished into thin air,” said Braxton. “I want you all to be just a little bit more patient while I start over, put my heart and soul into my new found feelings, finally feeling free enough to sing about the old ones and create new, better, memories with you all.”

Braxton’s impending album will follow 2017’s Bluebird of Happiness. 

While Campbell hasn’t released new music in recent years, he has been performing. This month, he made a surprise appearance at Usher’s Las Vegas residency to perform his signature hit “Can We Talk.” This summer, Campbell was presented with the R&B Icon Award at the 2022 Black Music Honors.
