Sebastian Mikael has announced his headlining North American tour, dubbed the Phileo Tour.
“This is my first headline tour, I can’t wAit to create new memories w/y’all,” Mikael said in the announcement caption.
The eight-date tour kicks off March 15 at the legendary S.O.B’s in New York City and wraps on March 26 in Seattle, Washington at Nectar Lounge.
Other major cities on Mikael’s tour itinerary include Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Los Angeles and more.
Mikael’s Phileo Tour tickets are on sale today (Jan. 20). No supporting act has been revealed at the time of publication.
His forthcoming tour comes behind his 2022 EP of the same title. Phileo was issued independently, following his pair of I C U U C ME (Pt. I and II) projects released on Slip-N-Slide Records/Atlantic Records.
“I choose to go independent because I feel like it’s a better fit for the music. I’ve never had full ownership before — this is my first time, so that’s exciting,” Mikael told Rated R&B.
Mikael titled his Phileo EP after the Greek term that defines brotherly love.
“I wanted to talk about having love for your people, sisterly or brotherly love, loving your peers, and loving the people around you. It’s mentioned in the Bible when Jesus and his disciples built this bond in brotherhood,” he explained.
He added, “I wanted to include the different aspects of love that feel more like the fundamentals and core of who we are and in a deeper sense. I wanted to kind of take love out of it — the romantic aspect — and talk about the misconceptions of love.”
The EP’s focus track, “Overgold,” arrived in September, and its official video came two months after.
