Proving that he is not only one of the most buzzed about artists of recent past, but also an indefatigable and passionate live artist, breakout Texas based R&B artist and singer- songwriter Leon Bridges has also announced this week that he will head out on his first ever full length North American headline tour in October 2015. This tour comes on the heels of Leon’s successful earlier tour activity including several sold out spot dates and a few select festival appearances.
Bridges, a trained choreographer and dancer, is celebrated for his strong live presence. Fans have shown up in droves for his solo concerts; his New York City show at Mercury Lounge sold out in exactly one minute, followed by another sold-out show at Troubadour in Los Angeles. Leon will return to New York City next week for a Bowery Ballroom show on June 23rd which sold out in six minutes flat and a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, also sold out.
Bridges first gained fan and critic popularity in the U.S. with his single ‘Coming Home’. An auspicious debut, the song premiered this past October on the venerable music site Gorilla- Vs-Bear and then spread through word of mouth and positive online press.
