This is not a drill people! For the first time ever in musical history, US ‘Kings of R&B’, Joe, 112 and Dru Hill will share the UK stage to perform an exclusive three city concert tour so here’s your last call to grab those last second tickets!
Kicking off a rare UK tour, the R&B veterans will perform live at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London on Friday 27 September 2019, at the O2 Academy in Birmingham on Saturday 28 September 2019 before closing the tour on Sunday 29 September 2019 at the Manchester Academy in Manchester.
The R&B crooner and Grammy nominated songwriter, Joe, is definitely a favourite among diehard UK R&B fans.
Entering the R&B and New Jack Swing era in the early ‘90s, Joe’s up-tempo and soul hitting hits from his debut album ‘Everything’ in 1993 and follow-up album, ‘All That I Am’ in 1997; plus, his most successful three times platinum selling international album ‘My Name is Joe’ in 2000, earned him his position as one of the Kings of R&B.
Reigning the charts with solo success and hit collaborations such as ‘Thank God I Found You’ featuring Mariah Carey and Nas, ‘Still Not A Player’ featuring the late great Big Pun, ‘Ride Wit U’ featuring G-Unit, ‘Where You At’ featuring Papoose and remixes/features with Kelly Rowland, Fantasia, Shaggy and Gucci Mane; plus Joe’s joint single with 50 Cent on ‘Big Rich Town’ for the theme track of the popular US crime drama show ‘Power’ extends Joe’s relevance over 25 years in the music industry.
With 13 studio albums and more than 15 million records sold, Joe has undeniably stayed true to his craft producing timeless R&B classics such as, ‘All The Things (Your Man Won’t Do’), Stutter’, ‘I Wanna Know’, Let’s Stay Home Tonight’ and If I Was Your Man’.
The names Sisqo, Nokio, Tao, Smoke E. Digglera and Digital Black making up the multi- platinum selling group Dru Hill definitely need no introduction to UK fans! Known for their soul, hip hop and gospel enthused sound, Dru Hill took the charts by storm with five top 10 singles – ‘Tell Me’, ‘In My bed’, ‘Never Make A Promise’ and ‘5 Steps’ off their debut self-titled album ‘Dru Hill’. The group’s follow up album ‘Enter the Dru’ featured their most successful international song to date with ‘How Deep Is Your Love’, which also appeared on the soundtrack to the 1998 box office hit film, ‘Rush Hour’.
With lead vocalist, Sisqo, venturing off for a more commercial R&B solo career, the triple threat artist released his number one hit records ‘Incomplete’ and the quintuple platinum selling single‘Thong Song’. The group continued to go from strength to strength with a total of four chart topping albums, nine top 10 singles including two hit features on ‘Big Bad Mamma’ with Foxy Brown and the ‘Wild Wild West’ with Will Smith plus their upcoming fifth studio album ‘The 2ndComing’.
R&B group, 112, the first and most successful boy band to sign to Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs’ record label – Bad Boy Entertainment, have certainly held their position as one of the top R&B and Hip Hop boy bands of the 90’s. Songs such as ‘Only You’, ‘Cupid’, ‘Anywhere’ and ‘Peaches and Cream’ plus featuring on the most notably Grammy Award winning song ‘I’ll Be Missing You’ with Puff Daddy and Faith Evans, saw the soulful quarter reach international stardom in the late 90’s right through to the mid-noughties.
With five successful albums under their belt including individual solo albums whilst on hiatus from 2007, the group surprised their fans by reuniting on stage with all four members for a string of concert dates titled ‘For The Fans Tour’ in 2015 and the ‘Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour’ in 2016.
