Beyoncé Recruits Luke James As Opening Act For European Tour


/ April 18, 2013

New Orleans singer Luke James got the call from Beyoncé and is crossing the pond to join her on her Mrs. Carter Show world tour.

The “I.O.U.” singer will be joining Bey April 24 in Paris, France, through May 29 in Stockholm, Sweden, with the exception of Oslo, Norway.

“Luke James is a gifted singer and songwriter and what he does on stage with his pure falsetto is incredible,” said Beyoncé. “I am excited to have him join the tour and to introduce this soulful singer to an audience in Europe that will be discovering a true star.”

Luke opened for Beyoncé throughout her entire run at Revel in Atlantic City last summer and was in her video for “Run the World (Girls).”

“It is such an unimaginable honor to be sharing the light yet again with Beyoncé on her sold out Mrs. Carter Show World Tour,” said Luke. “This is a blessing that I do not take lightly. Thank you, Beyoncé.”
