Dave Koz will be hitting the road this summer for a North American tour that will feature special guest BeBe Winans.
The tour is set to kick off on June 22nd at the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Center in El Paso, TX.
Special guest BeBe Winans sang on the title track of Dave's 1999 album, The Dance. They'll perform together, treating audiences to their biggest hits - and a few surprises, too.
The run will take them from coast to coast and include appearances at numerous festivals. In addition, Koz will perform solo with the San Diego Symphony on July 29 at Embarcadero Marina Park South in San Diego.
"BeBe and I have been friends for 20 years, but this is the first time we've toured together and I'm so excited," says Koz. "We've unofficially dubbed it 'The Brothers From Another Mother' tour because superficially we couldn't be more different, but we actually have so much in common."
"I've said no for years to touring, but this time seems right because of what we bring together to the stage," said Winans, adding, "the love people will feel from the concerts is real, and hopefully the audience will take it home with them."
