Solange Shuns Traditional Tour In Favor Of Museum Shows

Published: Wednesday 26th Apr 2017 by Sam

Solange has always marched to beat of her own drum and she’s continuing with the push for new album ‘A Seat At The Table.’

Unwrapped last October, the set became the songbird’s first chart topper and earned a Grammy this Spring.

Renown for her abilities both on record and on stage, many have been awaiting  tour dates from the 30-year-old.

They may be waiting a while, though. Because the singer has cultivated a less traditional means of plugging the project.

Speaking to Complex, Solo revealed:

“No, there’s no tour in the works—Right now I have two different shows. I have one that is more a performance piece show that is being performed in museums—and more in the art context. And then I have festival shows. As of now, I’ve not scheduled a proper tour in the more traditional sense.”

The soul maestra’s museum dates include San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art and New York’s Guggenheim Museum as part of Red Bull Music Academy’s month-long installation. [Source]

Much respect to Ms. Knowles for consistently doing “her.”

It’s clear a lot of thought goes into her sound, aesthetic, and positioning. But it never feels contrived or convoluted.

    • Music is ev!l now, suk the soul out of you. April 26, 2017

      That’s how it’s always been and she doing it like it should be done. Fans follow you, you don’t follow your fans.

    I honestly, no shade, think ppl would pay to see her live. No offense but I her style is so different that slot of ppl may not understand her showmanship. This may be why she’s taking the route she taking.

      Please proof read before you post. You’re contradicting yourself all over the place.

    Solange actually has an awesome presence and vibe for museums and especially festivals. It just fits well with her artsy fartsy hipster aesthetic. I’m actually checking her out here in D.C. next weekend at the Broccoli City Music Festival.
