Since making her debut in late-2016, H.E.R has been second to none. After every EP release, we have been able to fall deeper in love with her mysterious persona. Outside of recording new music, it’s evident H.E.R. finds comfort being on stage. The spellbinding artist has touched more than a dozen stages since her stint on Bryson Tiller’s Set it Off Tour in 2017.
Starting on November 11 in Atlanta, the mysterious singer will embark on a North American tour in support of her two 2018 EPs — I Used to Know Her: The Prelude and I Used to Know Her: Part 2. The winter tour will include special guests Bri Steves and Tone Stith.
Before tickets are sold out, check out four reasons why you should step out and see H.E.R. on tour.
1. H.E.R. bodies nostalgia.
It’s no secret that H.E.R has a strong love for throwback R&B. Her outpouring of love for classic R&B/soul music has been heard effortlessly throughout the recordings of her previously released EPs.
H.E.R.’s admiration for the early sounds of R&B beamed brighter than ever after she received a perfect score playing ELLE’s Song Association. The singer’s short yet sweet versions of D’Angelo’s “Lady,” Aaliyah’s “Try Again” and “Love, Love, Love” by Donny Hathaway made us want to hear H.E.R. singing more covers on a larger platform.
2. H.E.R. is a one-woman band
H.E.R. is unlike many artists; she’s the total package. Apart from being a phenomenal singer/songwriter, H.E.R is a gifted musician who can play guitar and piano. Back in June, the mysterious singer gained new concertgoers with her impressive BET Awards performance.
3. There’s no telling who will show up.
H.E.R. is quite popular. The songstress has many R&B pals who could come out and surprise crowds. For instance, Bryson Tiller, who is featured on her latest single “Could’ve Been,” has kept the same energy for H.E.R. since giving his co-sign. As their duet continues to rise up the charts, it’s a strong possibility that he could join her on stage one night.
4. A taste of her forthcoming debut album.
With most tours, the chance of hearing new music from artists is always fair game. Even though H.E.R. has thrilled us with two projects this year, fans are still anxious to hear the first sounds of her much-anticipated debut album. The upcoming winter tour could very well be the place. The question is, though, which show?
