concert1Word on the street is Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Anthony Hamilton is headlining the ‘Playin’ It Cool’ tour this summer.  This SoSo Def recording artist will be joined by Musiq Soulchild and Chrisette Michele.  The tour is a continuation of last year’s successful “Playin’ It Cool” dates which showcased the artist in intimate venues. This tour will be full of all that good stuff.  Good ole’ music by real artists.  You heard it correctly, I said “Real Artists”, the type of artists that sing lyrics that are relevant to your life.  Grown up music at it’s finest!

In case you were not aware, Mr. Hamilton (Point Of It All) and Musiq (OnMyRadio) both have albums out right now that stay in my CD player.  Actually I alternate between the two and when Chrisette drops ‘Epiphany’, her album will join my daily line up.  If you don’t have these albums, I suggest you run out and grab them so you’re not left out when everyone starts singing at the concert along with them.  Below is a list of concert dates, cities and venues.  If you only go to one concert this summer, make sure it’s this one.
