D'Angelo played his first U.S. show in 12 years at the Bonnaroo Music Festival earlier this month and will now be playing the House Of Blues on the Sunset Strip on the 4th of July. Tickets though, will not come cheap.
The tickets go on sale Friday at 10 A.M. and after all the ticketmaster charges, it will cost you about $129.00. The L.A. Times is reporting that tickets are on sale now via The Live Nation mobile App.
According to Roots drummer Questlove, D'Angelo has 30 new songs recorded and ready for release.
Questlove said D'Angelo had recently "discovered Bowie and Zeppelin, the Beatles, 'Pet Sounds,' Captain Beefheart and Zappa," adding that the new works see D'Angelo experimenting more with guitars. It may or may not be coming out in late summer/early fall, according to Questlove.
Surprisingly, this will be only the 3rd studio album released by D'Angelo. Questlove performed with D'Angelo at Bonnaroo with former Time and Original 7ven guitarist Jesse Johnson.
Right now, it looks like the fireworks will be at the House Of Blues on July 4th as this show is about to be the hottest ticket in town.-DocFB
