Sade set to launch world tour April 29
Tuesday 26 April 2011
Sade, led by British smooth soul vocalist Sade Adu, is set to launch a tour through Europe, the UK, and North America beginning April 29 in Nice, France.
After playing Nice, the band will hit 16 other cities on the continent before heading to Dublin on May 25, followed by a string of shows in the UK. The North American leg of the tour, featuring American recording artist John Legend and Sade's first tour in the region in 10 years, begins in Baltimore on June 16, followed by 44 scheduled gigs, including stops in Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
The band's new 28-track two-disc collection, The Ultimate Collection, is set to drop May 2 in the UK and May 3 in the US. Last week Sade released a remix single from the album, "The Moon & the Sky" featuring rap star Jay-Z.
The group's 2010 album Soldier of Love, their sixth studio release, peaked at number one in 13 countries and earned a Grammy Award.
