New York, NY (July 30, 2012) – This fall, Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum selling and critically acclaimed entertainer Anthony Hamilton will headline the Back To Love Tour, where his legions of fans across the country will have the opportunity to see him perform his timeless brand of music, including the latest hits from his fourth studio album of the same name.
Cited by Billboard as one of the 10 best performances during this year’s Essence Music Festival, Hamilton will kick off his captivating tour on September 8th in Columbia, SC at Township Auditorium and will make stops in other major U.S. cities including Chicago, New York, Washington DC, and Los Angeles. Anthony will bring along special guest, Grammy winner Estelle, and R&B newcomer, Antoine Dunn. Tickets go on sale August 3rd and are available through Ticketmaster.com.
Hamilton, a Charlotte, NC native who first began singing in church at the age of 10, has sold and collaborated on more than 20 million albums worldwide. Most recently, Back to Love was named one of the “Best of 2012…So Far” by iTunes. The latest single from the CD, the Babyface-produced “Pray for Me,” was the #1 most added single at urban adult radio and showcases Hamilton’s signature vocals and remarkable range. In addition, his duet with Jill Scott, “So In Love” from Scott’s Light of the Sun album, maintained the #1 spot on Billboard’s Urban Adult Contemporary chart for 18 weeks last year, tying a record for longest time spent at #1 on the Urban AC Charts.
Anthony Hamilton has been making waves in the music industry since 2002, when his contribution to the Nappy Roots’ song “Po’ Folks” garnered his first of 10 Grammy nominations. Since then, the singer-songwriter has remained consistent with music that touches the soul and a poignant sound that makes him unlike any other artist of the 21st century.
