Charles Bradley Announces Summer Tour

    Earlier this year, soulman Charles Bradley released what is still one of our highest rated albums of 2011 in No Time For Dreaming. And after some successful SXSW performances this past spring, Bradley will continue touring behind the album this summer with a slew of festival and solo dates. One of the bigger shows on the jaunt takes place in late July for the Global Soul event that celebrates the 40th anniversary of Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On. Along with Bradley, the show will feature sets from Rickey Minor, Stevie Wonder, Sharon Jones, and others.
