Charles Bradley will return to the road with His Extraordinaires for festival appearances this summer and fall. The soul great is set for NYC-area performances, the inaugural Arroyo Seco Festival in Southern California, and more. See full tour routing below.

The dynamic live performer has successfully completed treatment and has been given the go-ahead by his doctors to return to the stage following a stomach cancer diagnosis last fall. The 68-year old singer made his first live appearance post-treatment last month at the High Water Festival in Charleston, SC and is excited to be back. He is grateful to his doctors for the excellent care he received and to his family, friends and fans for rallying around him. Bradley notes:

“I am so grateful to my beautiful fans and touched by all the love and support they showed me through my crisis and time of sickness. They truly lifted me up and kept me going. I am honored and glad to be back and am going to give you all of my love.”

Charles Bradley released his critically lauded third album Changes on Daptone Records in April 2016. He performed shows across the globe and made a number of national television appearances including Conan and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He also returned to Austin, TX for SXSW where he delivered a show stopping set, among many other things.
