Tiwa Savage Announces North American Tour
The run kicks off August 24 in Washington, D.C.
Nigerian singer, songwriter, and actress Tiwa Savage has announced her 2023 North American tour.
Produced by Live Nation and Duke Concept, the nie-city run kicks off on August 24 at The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Washington, making stops across North America, Toronto, Atlanta, Dallas, and more before wrapping up in Los Angeles at Belasco on September 17.
Tickets will be available starting with artist presales beginning Tuesday, May 23. Additional presales will run throughout the week, ahead of the general onsale beginning Thursday, May 25 at 10am local time.
Earlier this month, Savage tackled Bob Marley’s iconic 1977 song “Waiting In Vain” for the upcoming Africa Unite album, which features reimagined versions of famous Bob Marley & The Wailers songs from African artists.
“Waiting In Vain” was originally featured on the Wailers’ album Exodus, now hailed as Album of the Century by Time Magazine. Produced by Mystro, Savage’s rendition of the classic stayed true to the original while bringing her signature R&B vocal style and Afrobeats production to the track. Blending the styles of some of Africa’s biggest artists with the timeless style of the Wailers’ hits is the goal of the “Africa Unite” album, out August 5th. The album will feature artists including Savage, Rema, Oxlade, Ayra Starr & more.
Tiwa Savage is one of Nigeria’s biggest artists, with over a billion streams across the globe. Known to many as the “Queen of Afrobeats,” Savage is a singer, songwriter, actress, director, host, and activist. Born in Lagos, Savage’s family relocated to London when she was 11, and she began her musical career at 16 as a backup singer.
