Soul star D'Angelo will bring his top-selling act to 26 cities across North America, beginning March 1 at the House of Blues, in Los Angeles.
Voodoo, D'Angelo's second album, debuted last week at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after its Jan. 25 release.
The album, which features guest appearances from hip-hop artists Method Man, Redman, Lauryn Hill and Roots drummer ?uestlove, experiments with a variety of R&B and soul sounds. On songs such as "Chicken Grease" (RealAudio excerpt), D'Angelo uses a light vocal touch to accompany jumpy guitar and bass riffs, while on the slow jam "Untitled," he employs a smoother soul crooning.
The tour will criss-cross North America several times before concluding May 2 in Miami. Jasmine Vega, D'Angelo's publicist at Virgin Records, said that only the first four dates are confirmed. No special guests have been confirmed.
The singer has not toured since the release of his 1995 debut album, Brown Sugar.
