D'Angelo live at Le Zenith - Paris

D’Angelo is set to embark on his Second Coming European tour next month, but not before squeezing in a show at New York’s Apollo Theater. Oh yeah, believe it or not, it’ll be the first headlining gig of his career at the legendary venue.

You could say the show will bring things full circle for D’Angelo, who last graced the Apollo stage back in 1991 when the then-largely unknown singer took part in the weekly competition series “Amateur Night at the Apollo,” winning it three nights in a row and earning himself a cash prize.

Plus, there’s a chance to hear D’Angelo’s new album Black Messiah in all its live glory for the very first time. The show takes place on Monday, February 2, with tickets going on sale on Wednesday, January 21, at 10 a.m.

bonnaroo-2015

The 2015 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival returns to Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee from June 11-14. The lineup for this year’s four-day festival was announced through a long drawn out and annoying process where fans had to call 1-844-ROO-2015 to hear the name of each artist that’s set to perform. Headliners this year include Kendrick Lamar, Billy Joel, Mumford & Sons, and Deadmau5.

Flying Lotus, SBTRKT, Run the Jewels, Florence and the Machine, Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, Shabazz Palaces, Jamie xx, Earth Wind and Fire, Childish Gambino, G-Eazy, Gary Clark Jr., Dej Loaf, and others are also set to perform, with more artists being added to the lineup on the coming months. Last year, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Lauryn Hill, and Wiz Khalifa, were notables who performed. Tickets for Bonnaroo 2015 go on sale this Saturday, January 17 at 12 p.m. EST.

Check out the full lineup below.

Miss Info: This was one of my favorite events of 2014…I hung out with dance songstress Kiesza (“Hideaway”, “Teach Me” Feat. Joey Badass, “Take You There” with Diplo and Skrillex) all day in New York City, touring some of her favorite low-key hangouts. We ate some healthy hummus on the Upper West Side, shivered in the snow under Riverside Drive in Washington Heights, visited her dance crew in Midtown, and ended up vintage fashion shopping down in the East Village. Solid field trip all the way around. You can watch all the hilarity and $300 Hee Haw-branded overalls here.

To cap off the fun, Kiesza got down to what she does best…rocking Reebok Classics and the fader’s NYC celebration of music and fashion, “Coast To Coast.” And she even wore the sparkly number we bought together. Takes a real diva to pull off a turquoise satin blouson bomber;)

Watch the beautifully edited concert clip (from our buddies at the fader and Treeboy Pictures)…

gov ball 2015

Less than 24 hours after Drake was announced as one of three headliners for Coachella 2015, the OVO founder has also been tapped to headline Governors Ball 2015, which marks the fifth anniversary of the NYC festival. The lineup is a little lighter on hip-hop this year with the only other rap acts being Logic, Bishop Nehru and People Under the Stairs. However, with names like Lana Del Rey, The Black Keys and Flying Lotus on the bill, it should still be a great weekend.

Governors Ball 2015 goes down between June 5-7 at Randall’s Island Park, New York City. Tickets are on sale now via the official website.
