D'Angelo Announces Apollo Theater Headlining Show

. (Radio.com) After releasing Black Messiah right near the end of 2014, and winning the Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll for best album of the year, D'Angelo will be celebrating in style, with his first ever headlining performance at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York City.

The concert, scheduled for Feb. 7, comes some 24 years after D'Angelo appeared at the venue's amateur night in 1991. This will be the first live performance for D'Angelo since the release of Black Messiah, and will feature the backing of his band, the Vanguard.

The show marks the beginning of what is likely to be a long touring cycle for D'Angelo, as the Black Messiah tour kicks off on Feb. 11 in Switzerland, and continues with a full European run. Read more here.
