Charlie Wilson truly does seem to embody that feeling of forever. At least on stage, at 60+ years old, he looks like he could be tearing down arenas for another 30 years.
Today, the iconic R&B legend announced that he will be hitting the road on a new national tour titled, “The Forever Charlie Tour,” kicking off February 12, 2015.
The 27-date trek will hit cities all across the U.S., including Detroit, Chicago, Nashville, Houston and many more before wrapping up on March 27 in Oakland, CA. The tour is named after Wilson’s upcoming album Forever Charlie, which is slated to hit stores on January 27 via RCA Records. The album has been preceded by the smooth new single “Goodnight Kisses,” which was recently the #1 most added song at Urban AC Radio.
In addition to Uncle Charlie, R&B vocalists KEM and Joe will be joining him for what is set to be a very successful tour.
“I am so glad to be on the road once again and to bring my show to so many cities across the country. It’s going to be a special night for all the ladies that will join me and my special guests!” says Charlie Wilson. “I am looking forward to sharing the stage with my two talented friends Kem and Joe. They are both artists that I admire and am honored to have them on my tour. We are planning a show the audience won’t ever forget.”
