Jill Scott’s 20th-anniversary tour resumes after COVID pause


Jill Scott will head out on what she’s now dubbing her 23rd-anniversary tour, which will wrap in Los Angeles over the summer.

The “So Gone” and “Golden” singer-songwriter, whose plans to mount a 20th-anniversary tour in 2020 were derailed by the pandemic, will kick off the Who Is Jill Scott? Words & Sound Vol. 1 tour in Augusta, Ga., on Feb. 28.

And she’ll cap it off locally at the Hollywood Bowl on June 22.

The three-time Grammy Award winner will make stops in cities such as Brooklyn, Boston, Detroit and Nashville. She’ll return to Georgia for shows in Savannah and Atlanta, and then head to North and South Carolina, among other states.

“The response has been completely overwhelming with requests to bring the ‘Who Is Jill Scott?’ anniversary tour to more cities and more countries. And you know what? I’m gonna do it,” the R&B star said in a video to fans posted on her website and social media pages on Monday.

“I’m bringing the show where you want me to. I can’t wait to see you,” she said.

The soul singer has set up multi-show residencies in her hometown of Philadelphia and in Washington, D.C. She’ll play two nights at the Met in Philadelphia in March and a pair of concerts in D.C. at the MGM National Harbor on Mother’s Day weekend in May.
