CHARLES BRADLEY Announces Summer Tour

0 1438

“The Screaming Eagle of Soul” Charles Bradley has announced summer tour dates, with stops at a number of major festivals includingLollapalooza, FYF Fest and Bumbershoot. Bradley recently wrapped an extensive North American spring tour in support of new album Victim of Love (out now on Dunham/Daptone), and headlined the famed Apollo Theater where the Village Voice noted that the set was “a bottomless display of artistry, gratitude and boundless enthusiasm.” See the full tour routing below.


In addition to bringing his soul stirring, hip-shaking, crowd-pleasing live performances to stages across North America and the world, Bradley just released a new track from Victim of Love. In “You Put The Flame on It,” he sings “My life is gold – you put the flame on it,” backed by a horn chart that sounds like it was lifted from a lost Four Tops single.

By now, Bradley’s remarkable, against-all-odds rise has been well-documented – how he transcended a bleak life on the streets and struggled through a series of ill-fitting jobs – most famously as a James Brown impersonator at Brooklyn clubs – before finally being discovered by Daptone’s Gabriel Roth. The year following the release of No Time For Dreaming saw one triumph after another and Victim of Love sees Bradley emerging from his past heartaches stronger and more confident, overflowing with love to share.
