The set featured hits like “A Long Walk” and “Gettin’ In The Way” and cemented Scott as a major player in soul and R&B.
“I’m so excited to go back on the road,” Scott said in a statement. “I’m rehearsing every day in anticipation of performing this classic album, as well as some of my newer music. I guarantee that there will be moments of heartfelt emotion, surprises and most definitely inspirational moments that will move the audience.”
In celebration of the album’s platinum certification, Scott’s label will re-release a deluxe expanded edition in digital and physical formats to include five previously unreleased songs she wrote for the original album. Each ticket purchased to the tour includes an exclusive fan-only code to download the deluxe edition.
Scott will tour the world in support of her fifth studio album “Woman”, released in 2015. The tour is the ultimate celebration of Scott’s emotional depth, musical adventurousness and passionate bravado that have come to define her.
