D’Angelo announces Boston concert

, Staff

D’Angelo has announced plans for a concert in Massachusetts this spring. The neo-soul veteran will make his way to Boston for an intimate performance at the House of Blues on Tuesday, May 28. Tickets for he show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $49.50 and $75.

No official announcement has been made but D’Angelo is reportedly ready to release his comeback album this year. The singer’s third studio album and follow-up to 2000’s Voodoo is 99% complete according to the album’s producer Questlove (of The Roots).

“It’s potent. It’s funky. It’s an extremely hard pill to swallow,” said Questlove of the highly anticipated release in an interview with Billboard earlier this year. “He’s one of those artists that have, of course, taken 13 years to follow up a record. It’s going to take you about 10 years to digest this record. Totally brilliant. Just the way this society works with music… being able to judge if something is a classic after the first listen, you can do that after thirty seconds on this. And the fact that we started this record in 2004, and it still sounds like it came out five years from now, it is a testament to the timelessness of it.”

Earlier this month, D’Angelo previewed some of the new songs during an intimate set at the Brooklyn Bowl.

D’Angelo returned to the spotlight last summer by delivering his first stateside performance in over a decade as part of an unannounced appearance during the “Superjam” lead by Questlove at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee. He then toured with Mary J. Blige for a tour that stopped at Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion last August.
