Kelela has unveiled dates for her headlining RAVE:N Tour, which kicks off March 16, 2023, at Terminal West in Atlanta, Georgia.
The tour will cover cities such as New York, Washington, D.C., Toronto, and Los Angeles, before it concludes April 7, 2023, at Outernet in London.
“Get in stink, we goin for a ride!!!” Kelela wrote in an Instagram caption.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, Dec. 9.
“I started this process from the feeling of isolation and alienation I’ve always had as a black femme in dance music, despite its black origins,” said Kelela.
“RAVEN is my first break taken in the dark, an affirmation of black femme perspective in the midst of systemic erasure and the sound of our vulnerability turned into power.”
Kelela has shared several songs from RAVEN, starting with its lead single “Washed Away.”
“I really didn’t think I’d hit on anything that would resonate out the gate, but I can see now that it was my willingness to try that paved the way for self-belief and renewal. Hope this makes you feel the same,” Kelela wrote on Instagram.
Kelela followed with three additional songs, including “Happy Ending” and “On the Run.” She co-produced the latter track with Yo van Lenz, Kaytranada and Bambii. Asmara also contributed on the production.
