Erykah Badu Announces ‘Out My Mind, Just In Time’ Tour Dates

ERYKAH BADU has confirmed dates for her 2010 North American tour, Out My Mind, Just In Time. The tour takes its name from the closing track on the multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, director, and actor’s new album, NEW AMERYKAH PART TWO: RETURN OF THE ANKH, which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Digital Albums chart and No. 4 on the Top 200 chart.

ERYKAH BADU’s Out My Mind, Just In Time Tour will make stops at a mix of amphitheaters and concert halls throughout North America this spring, beginning on May 22 at Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore, MD and wrapping up on June 24 at The Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas, NV.

A galvanizing live performer renowned for her electrifying stage presence and soulful vocal ability, ERYKAH BADU’s Out My Mind, Just In Time Tour promises to deliver a fantastically funky live experience not to be missed. The outing will also feature an exciting revolving cast of opening acts that vary by city, including N.E.R.D., Bilal, Janelle Monae, and drummer Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson from The Roots.

Released by Universal Motown Records on 3.30 2010 AD (((333))), ERYKAH BADU’s fifth studio album, NEW AMERYKAH PART TWO: RETURN OF THE ANKH, arrived to a chorus of critical acclaim that hushed critics of the controversial music video for the album’s first single, “Window Seat.” Newsweek calls NEW AMERYKAH PART TWO “the R&B album of the moment that actually has a hint of timelessness about it.” The Washington Post says, “This is Badu at her retro-futuristic best.” And People raves, “This is the album that fans have been waiting for.”

NEW AMERYKAH PART TWO is the long-awaited follow-up to ERYKAH BADU’s superb 2008 disc, New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War. The current single, “Window Seat,” has been heating up airwaves and will be featured as Delta Airlines in-flight boarding music throughout the month of April. Other highlights from the new album include the funky fresh party jam “Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY),” a hypnotic hustler’s anthem called “Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long” that famously contains a sample of “Arrow Through Me” by Paul McCartney and Wings, and the breathtaking three-part suite “Out My Mind Just In Time,” which also inspired the concept and title of the album cover artwork designed by ERYKAH BADU in collaboration with famed artist and poster designer EMEK.

ERYKAH BADU has been busy promoting the release of NEW AMERYKAH PART TWO: RETURN OF THE ANKH with recent television performances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (March 3), The Wendy Williams Show (March 25), Good Day New York (March 26), Jimmy Kimmel Live (March 30), Chelsea Lately (March 31), and The Wanda Sykes Show (April 3). She is also visible on newsstands on the April cover of EQ and featured in Nylon, Playboy, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Time Out New York, Newsweek, and New York Magazine, among many other publications.

In addition to ERYKAH BADU’s Out My Mind, Just In Time Tour, she has joined the lineups for this summer’s Lollapalooza festival and will reunite with the revamped Lilith Fair tour for 7 Canadian and U.S. dates. She will also be featured as a special guest at Maxwell’s upcoming concerts at Phillips Arena in Atlanta on June 11 and Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 26.
