Jamie Foxx will make his headliner debut at Harlem, NY’s legendary Apollo Theater on May 21. The concert is one of only two engagements slated for the U.S. in celebration of Foxx’s first studio album in five years, Hollywood. RCA Records will release the set on May 18.
Hollywood marks the Oscar- and Grammy Award-winning artist’s fourth studio album. Pre-orders begin May 4. The set’s lead single, “You Changed Me” featuring Chris Brown, is currently No. 23 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart.
Foxx, whose previous albums include 2005’s Unpredictable, 2008’s Intuition and 2010’s Best Night of My Life, has a longtime relationship with the Apollo. As a fledgling comedian at the start of his career, he performed on Showtime at the Apollo. He has also hosted the venue’s two major fundraisers: the Spring Gala and Apollo in the Hamptons. In addition, Foxx has served as one of the executive producers for the BET show Apollo Live.
Tickets for Foxx’s Hollywood release concert at the Apollo Theater went on sale to the general public today.
