To many of us, D’Angelo‘s Voodoo tour was like yesterday. ?uesto on his throne, conducting the show in a dashiki, D with his washboard abs and sultry vocal stylings causing ladies to throw their panties on the stage not even halfway through the first song. Well that was 11 years ago and no album or tour since. Are we mad, son? No. It’s that man’s life. Do we want our D back? Heck yeah!

We posted back in July that word around the industry and on the twitternets was that work on a new album was well underway. Now it appears two shows have been announced for Amsterdam’s legendary venue Paradiso for Jan. 30th and Jan. 31st, 2012 with tickets going on sale this Saturday November 5th for €60. We heard about this last week and tried to reach management to confirm before posting. No confirmation (or denial) but the shows are still listed on the Paradiso web site–and rumor has it London gigs are in the works.

    Yeah Amsterdam is the worst place for him to be…especially because it’s the ONLY place in the world that a sexy (no homo) singer on tour can find drugs and hoes. Come on now…let’s dead that argument.

    Great to have you back D. Can’t wait to see what you come out with.

    One of the downfalls of trees is it puts you on your own wavelength where you think that everyone is following your train of thought/thought process, is feeling what you’re feeling, and/or understands where you’re coming from. But DAMN n*gga, you sound straight up CRACK-ISH. Step back and check your ramblin’-ass self, curb the ghetto-text-speak, and re-read your post before you press the ‘submit’ button and you might actually get a point across.
    Funny it tags you as Not Available. Couldn’t be any more dead-on.
