Jill Scott doesn’t need to boast.
When you got it like Jilly from Philly, just sashaying into the room (as demonstrated in the picture above) you easily make your presence known without saying a word. The three-time Grammy award winning artist has consistently given fans hearty music and lessons learned through her lyrics, and now she’s going out on a summer tour to touch the people once again.
Kicking off on June 23 in Hampton, Va., the singer-songwriter, New York Times bestselling poet and actress is hitting the road for a 25-city trek. Scott will perform at Brooklyn’s King’s Theater, New Orleans’ Essence Music Festival, Newark’s Prudential Theater and LA’s 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 number one on the Billboard Hot 100. See the list of dates below, and if you’re in need of Ms. Scott, you can purchase your tickets here
