See the Debut Performance of "My Peace" on Good Morning America: HERE
During last week's interview on The Real, host Loni Love hailed PJ Morton as "the busiest man in R&B": today, the four-time Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, performer and producer has taken that title to a whole other level. With the announcement of a colossal Watch The Sun Tour, Morton invites fans to experience his biggest album yet, live on some of the most significant stages he and his band will have ever played. Spanning more than 35 shows across the country, the run of summer and fall dates includes stops at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, New York City's Apollo Theater, Los Angeles' Theater at Ace Hotel, Detroit's Aretha Franklin Amphitheatreand dozens of other illustrious locations. Find the full list below, also featuring appearances at New Orleans and Newport Jazz Festivals, plus headlining stints in Australia and Jakarta this spring.
All newly added Watch The Sun dates go on-sale at 10am local time this Friday, April 22nd, with presales beginning at 10am local time on Wednesday, April 20th. Find tickets and more information at pjmortonmusic.com/#shows.
Out April 29th on PJ Morton's own Morton Records, Watch The Sun is an unapologetic and expansive album about the challenges he has faced in life and love. Following four straight years of Grammy wins as a self-released, self-produced artist, in addition to chart-topping achievements and countless collaborations, Watch The Sun is the next step in a career that continues to bridge styles, traditions and generations. With special appearances from Alex Isley, Chronixx, El DeBarge, Jill Scott, JoJo, Mr. Talkbox, Nas, Stevie Wonder, Wale, Zacardi Cortez and more, the 11 all new, original songs find Morton at his most honest, open and intentional.
On Good Morning America earlier today, PJ Morton discussed the project before a buoyant and self-love-inducing performance of Watch The Sun single "My Peace,"featuring JoJo and Mr. Talkbox. Watch it HERE.
PJ Morton recently brought album highlight "Please Don't Walk Away" to Jimmy Kimmel Live!, but starting in Chicago this Wednesday, April 20th, fans will have the opportunity to hear all of Watch The Sun early, at a series of visual listening parties presented in partnership with Regal Cinemas and local radio stations.
