Jill Scott to Celebrate the 23rd Anniversary of Her Debut Album With a Tour
From March to July of next year, Jill Scott will hold a 23rd anniversary tour dedicated to Who is Jill Scott? Words & Vol. 1.
Jill Scott is giving her 2000 debut Who is Jill Scott? Words & Vol. 1 another anniversary tour. After Scott's 2020 tour for the 20th anniversary of her debut ended prematurely due to the pandemic, the Philadelphia-raised singer has announced that the tour will resume in 2023. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will run in over 20 markets across the country, with multi-show residencies at Washington, D.C.'s MGM National Harbor on Mother's Day weekend and The MET Philadelphia.
"My band and I were so excited three years ago, but that damn COVID shut us down," said Scott in a statement. "Now, we outside! Come see me. Come feel again. Relive your favorite moments. Ya'll ready to settle down and get with this?!? It's a lot of love here."

Neo-soul group Moonchild were featured as opening acts on Scott's 20th anniversary tour, but it appears that the group will not return for Scott's new shows. Along with taking part in a Verzuz battle with Erykah Badu in 2020, the same year, Scott launched “Jill Scott Presents: J.ill the Podcast" with co-hosts Laiya St.Clair and Aja Graydon-Dantzler.
