Seal Announces 30th Anniversary Tour Of North America
Seal will embark on a massive 30th Anniversary Tour across North America this spring. Produced by Live Nation, he will team up with longtime producer and trusted collaborator Trevor Horn, who will take on the role of musical director for the run of shows; additionally, Horn’s acclaimed new wave band The Buggles will be featured as special guest performers.
The six-week run begins on April 25 in Phoenix, AZ at Arizona Financial Theatre and will make stops at famed venues such as the Beacon Theatre in New York, NY on May 23 and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on June 7. It concludes at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA on June 12. On Thursday, January 26, a special fan pre-sale will go live at 9AM local time followed by a Live Nation pre-sale at 10AM local time. General on-sale begins Friday, January 27 at 10AM local time.
The 30th Anniversary Tour will commemorate three decades of his landmark self-titled debut album Seal (1991) and eponymous follow-up Seal II (1994). He will be performing the records in their entirety for the first time, delivering a set highlighted by classic chart-topping anthems such as Crazy, Future Love Paradise, Killer and Kiss From A Rose. Expect soul staples and standards peppered throughout the set, showcasing the full spectrum of his incredible repertoire.
Last fall, he reissued Seal as the 4-CD/2-LP Seal: Deluxe Edition complete with rarities, a 12”x12” hardcover book that includes never-before-published photos and liner notes courtesy of Jim Farber, a previously unreleased 13-track concert performance, and more, with all music impeccably remastered by Trevor Horn.
The set has been widely acclaimed: American Songwriter celebrated the set’s “incredible dance remixes,” while Paste proclaimed it one of “The 20 Best Album Reissues of 2022,” writing, “Looking back three decades later, Seal’s combination of pop, funk, rock and dance hit harder than we might have realized at the time.”
Seal notably reached RIAA platinum status in the United States, cracking the Top 30 of the Billboard 200. In the UK, it earned a double-platinum certification and captured #1 on the UK Album Charts. Describing the magic of this debut, Pitchfork likened it to “a vast, multi-sensory explosion of colour and texture, a voice giving voice to something beautiful.”
