Jhene Aiko Announces Enter the Void Tour With SZA & The Internet
She dropped a No.1 album, has legions of fans and has already toured extensively, so it only makes sense that Jhene Aiko will be headlining her own tour.
The Enter the Void tour will feature the singer performing tracks off her debut LP, 'Souled Out.' Jhene is also recruiting SZA and the Internet for the trek. The addition to the tour is obviously a huge opportunity for the TDE songstress and the Odd Future-affiliated band.
Things will kick off in Washington, D.C., at the Fillmore on Dec. 2, then they'll head to New York City's Best Buy Theater on Dec. 3. Other cities Jhene and her crew will visit are Philadelphia on Dec. 5, the Observatory in Orange County, Calif., on Dec. 11, Chicago's House of Blues on Dec. 20, and Minneapolis' Skyway Theatre on Dec. 21.
It's safe to say the West Coast native sharpened her performance skills during Drake's Do You Want a Tour?, as she traveled all around the globe playing multiple dates. But according to a past interview, it took her time to get comfortable onstage, especially performing for TV. Drizzy offered her some advice that helped her out.
"I'm very camera shy, because I'm a singer-songwriter. I had never really thought about having to be on TV and all that," she said. "After, I always get nervous, and [Drake's] like 'You sounded great,' and I was like, 'But a couple of people on Twitter'...And he's like, 'Don't go on Twitter. Don't go on the Internet.'"
Below are the cities across the U.S. that Jhene, SZA and the Internet will be hitting up.
