Exclusive: August Alsina Brings “Don’t Matter Tour” with Tone Stith & Rotimi to New York City


On Sunday night (Aug. 13), August Alsina triumphantly returned to the very stage in New York City where he frightening collapsed on his “Testimony Live Tour” in 2014.

Returning to Irving Plaza for the NYC stop on his comeback “Don’t Matter Tour,” the R&B star was fully embraced and supported by a packed house of dedicated fans. Only months after publicly revealing his health problems in an emotional interview with Jada Pinkett-Smith, the 24-year-old appeared to be in his prime, at the top of his game.

However, before he hit the stage the crowd was treated to a double dose of hot new R&B talent from the likes of singer/actor Rotimi, and buzzing young singer/songwriter Tone Stith. Both New Jersey natives, Rotimi kicked off the night with a commanding and sexy performance of his new music. He even surprised the audience by bringing out Dancehall star Kranium for their new single “Want More.”  With the crowd fully hyped, Tone Stith took to the stage like a seasoned all-star, backed by a troupe of dancers and musicians. In a perfectly executed 30-minute set he showcased his multiple talents, starting with his fancy footwork, outstanding voice and musicianship on the guitar. Tone Stith surely cultivated a nice new following with his raw talents this night.

As the anticipation grew for August with chants from the audience, the R&B star finally appeared on stage in a hooded robe and scarf, supported by 2 female dancers, his DJ and band members. Alsina immediately turned up the energy with some throwback tracks including “I Don’t Get Tired” and the Roscoe Dash-featured “Work,” off his classic mixtape, The Product 2. Throughout his hour-long performance, the singer delivered song after song from his early material (“Get Ya Money,” “Downtown”), to his debut album (“Numb,” “Make It Home,” “Porn Star”), sophomore album (“Hip Hop,” “Song Cry”), and current single “Don’t Matter.”

In the evening’s most somber moment, August paid tribute to his older brother who passed away due to violence. He also took the crowd to church with a special rendition of “Hallelujah.” As every female in the building screamed their love for him, Alsina closed out his set with the fan-favorite, “Kissin On My Tattoos,” followed by a riveting twerk-a-thon from his dancers.

August Alsina is readying the release of his third studio album, Drugs, which is coming soon on Def Jam Records. Tone Stith recently released his buzz-worthy debut independent album, Can We Talk, across all digital music platforms. Rotimi also released his brand new EP, ‘Jeep Music, Vol. 1,’ and can be see Sunday night’s on Starz hit series, POWER.
