Jill Scott Announces Summer Tour Dates
Jill Scott doesn’t need to boast.
When you got it like Jilly from Philly, you easily make your presence known by just sashaying into the room without saying a word. The three-time Grammy award-winning artist has consistently given fans hearty music and lessons learned through lyrics, and is now going out on a summer tour to touch the people once again.
Kicking off June 23 in Hampton, Va., the singer-songwriter, New York Times-bestselling poet and actress is hitting the road for a 25-city trek with stops in Brooklyn, New York’s King’s Theater, New Orleans’ Essence Festival, Newark’s Prudential Theater and Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl just to name a few.
Although Scott doesn’t have new music to give fans, her catalog of hits will absolutely suffice including songs from 2015’s Woman, which went straight to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
