PASO ROBLES, Calif. – April 23, 2024 – Mercury Prize winning, Grammy-nominated Michael Kiwanuka and 5x Grammy-winning Brittany Howard announce a co-headline fall tour with support from Yasmin Williams. The tour kicks off September 29th in Philadelphia for a run of 14 shows across the US, wrapping in Paso Robles at Vina Robles Amphitheater, Saturday, October 19th. Full dates below.

“So excited to join Brittany on this run. I’ve been such a fan of her music since I first saw a video of her singing Hold On in a record store somewhere. So authentically true in her voice and songs. Since then I’ve been hooked. Seeing her shine as a solo artist is a delight so it’s a real honour for me to be able to share the stage with her. I can’t wait to see you America. It’s been so long and I’ve missed playing for you. I’m counting down the days.” - Michael Kiwanuka

“I am so excited to be touring again with my dear friend Michael Kiwanuka and hitting so many amazing venues across the country in the fall. We started this journey at almost the same time in 2011 and it has been so amazing to follow his growth as an artist. I can’t wait to watch his set and also see Yasmin Williams as she is such a unique artist. This tour is a dream come true.” - Brittany Howard

Michael and Brittany have partnered with The Ally Coalition to donate $1 per ticket to support housing for mental health resources for people of color, single mothers, and unhoused LGBTQ Youth.

More information on both artists, dates and ticket purchase links below. Pre-sale will go up on Wednesday, April 24 and tickets for Vina Robles Amphitheatre are available via Ticketmaster, Friday, October 26, at 10AM.


Mercury Prize and BRIT Award-winning, Grammy nominated British musician Michael Kiwanuka introduced himself and his art with the acclaimed debut album, Home Again, followed by his decidedly left turn LP, Love & Hate. Produced alongside Danger Mouse, the album notably features the haunting hit “Cold Little Heart” from HBO’s Big Little Lies. KIWANUKA, Michael’s third and most definitive release to date, brought the singer of Ugandan heritage back together with Danger Mouse and as well as British producer Inflo. The eponymous album earned Michael the distinguished Mercury Prize in 2020, his fourth and fifth BRIT nominations, and his first Grammy Award nomination for Best Rock Album. All three records have been certified Gold status.

Michael has been keeping himself in good company as a regular contributor and confidante of the acclaimed SAULT collective and will have more information on new music to come soon.

“This is full-throated soul with swagger.” - NPR

Currently wrapping her spring headline tour which runs through April 28th, followed by Bonnaroo Music Festival, Brittany will also be joining Hozier on dates across the UK and Ireland and performing at prestigious European festivals such as Glastonbury, North Sea Jazz Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival.
