In a fitting beginning to the next chapter of his meteoric rise, Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires will appear in concert at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem. Scheduled to appear on May 16th at 8PM, Bradley looks forward to a performance he says will fulfill a lifelong dream, according to the press release.
“I have wanted to play the Apollo ever since I was a young man, and saw James Brown play there,” says Bradley. “I could have given up years ago, but I persevered and followed my heart, and now at 64 I have the chance of a lifetime. I plan to present my heart and soul to the people at the Apollo!”
This performance will be an appropriate follow-up to Charles Bradley’s recent single “Strictly Reserved For You” – the first track from his latest album Victim Of Love – and Daptone Records‘ upcoming takeover of SXSW with their Super Soul Revue on March 14th. The Screaming Eagle Of Soul appears at The Apollo Theater with fellow Daptone vets the Menahan Street Band.
