FOREVER CHARLIE TOUR
with Special Guests KEM and JOE
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Grammy nominated artist Charlie Wilson has announced his new national tour Forever Charlie will kick off on February 12, in Cleveland, Ohio and will wrap on March 27 in Oakland, Calif. The tour is named after Wilson’s latest album on RCA Records. Charlie Wilson’s new single “Goodnight Kisses” was the #1 most added song at Urban Radio and Billboard says about the single “…Over snap-and-swing doo-wop-inspired production, the GAP Band co-founder sings sweetly about his loved one’s smoochies. At 61 years old, Wilson is still as convincing a romantic as ever.”
“I am so glad to be on the road once again and to bring my show to so many cities across the country. It’s going to be a special night for all the ladies that will join me and my special guests!” says Charlie Wilson. “I am looking forward to sharing the stage with my two talented friends Kem and Joe. They are both artists that I admire and am honored to have them on my tour. We are planning a show the audience won’t ever forget.”
Jeff Sharp, Vice President of Urban Touring AEG Live says “The Forever Charlie Tour is the most prominent R&B tour for an adult urban audience that is scheduled to hit the road in 2015 thus far. The fact that three of the most important male vocalist/entertainers of our era are sharing the same stage nightly is something that brings AEG as a company to commit any and all of its many assets to the project.”
Wilson has received seven Grammy nominations and multiple awards throughout his career; he was named Billboardmagazine’s #1 Adult R&B Artist and has had eight #1 records that topped the Billboard Urban Adult Contemporary radio chart including, “Without You,” “Charlie, Last Name Wilson,” “Magic,” “There Goes My Baby,” “Can’t Live Without You,” “You Are,” “Life of the Party” and “My Love Is All I Have.” Most recently, Wilson received a Grammy nomination for the song “If I Believe” in the Gospel category; he was also an NAACP Outstanding Album Award winner for the album Love, Charlie and BET presented to Wilson a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.
The FOREVER CHARLIE TOUR is scheduled for Atlanta, Ga., Phillips Arena – February 21; Birmingham, Ala., BJCC Arena – February 22; Mobile, Ala., Civic Center – March 18. (Dates and venues are subject to change.)
