Leon Bridges announces Gold-Diggers Sound 2022 tour dates

Tickets on sale July 30th

Leon Bridges will hit promote his upcoming Gold-Diggers Sound album with a 2022 tour featuring special guests Chiiild. Produced by Live Nation, the 15-date tour will kick off on April 29th in Tulsa, OK at The Tulsa Theater with stops in Cincinnati, Nashville, Cleveland and more before wrapping May 19th in St. Augustine, FL at St. Augustine Amphitheatre. In the meantime, Bridges can be seen performing at various festivals and headlining dates from August through October 2021.

Tickets for the 2022 dates go on sale beginning Friday, July 30th at 10 am local time via Ticketmaster. Fans who pre-save the album will receive a tour presale code starting Tuesday, July 27th at 1 pm ET/10 am PT until Thursday, July 29th at 10 pm local time.

The tour celebrates the release of Gold-Diggers Sound, an R&B album birthed from extended late nights at the Los Angeles speakeasy and studio of the same name. The album collects stories from Bridges’ life and celebrates his immersive experience of creating music in the same East Hollywood room where he lived, worked and drank over the course of two years. What began as nightly all-night jam sessions where he and his fellow musicians could just vibe and let loose away from crowds, cameras and structured studio schedules, quickly began to form into what he realized was an album. The soulful collaboration between Bridges as an artist and the space itself was so encompassing that he chose to name the album after the soon-to-be legendary complex.

Gold-Diggers Sound was executive produced by Bridges and Ricky Reed and produced by Reed and Nate Mercereau, the Strother sisters from acclaimed R&B group KING and features genre-smashing pianist Robert Glasper, celebrated saxophonist Terrace Martin and veteran songwriter Atia “Ink” Boggs (who also lends a rapturous vocal to “Don’t Worry”). Bridges considers the album to have psychedelic influences while staying true to the modern R&B sound he has been moving towards since his debut. The first track released was “Motorbike” which Bridges debuted alongside a Bonnie and Clyde inspired adventure film directed by Director .Paak – the directing name for Anderson .Paak, a longtime friend of Bridges.

The set will be available on CD and LP and clocks in at 37 minutes.
