JAZMINE SULLIVAN ANNOUNCES “THE REALITY SHOW TOUR”



"REALITY SHOW" DEBUTED #1 ON THE BILLBOARD R&B CHARTS; #12 ON TOP 200


“More than any artist, Sullivan encapsulates the breadth of R&B's emotional range not by riding the margins, but from a proud position at its center.” -Pitchfork

(New York, NY – February 5, 2015) –Grammy-nominated R&B recording artist Jazmine Sullivan is excited to announce “The Reality Show Tour,” her first national headlining tour in four years, in support of her recently released third studio album Reality Show.

“The Reality Show Tour” kicks off in New Orleans on March 1, making 12 stops in major markets including New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Los Angeles and ending in Las Vegas on March 29. Tickets go on sale February 6 and can be purchased on her official website.

After a three-year hiatus from the music business, this past January, Jazmine released her highly anticipated third studio album Reality Show, which included fan favorites “Forever Don’t Last,” “Dumb” featuring Meek Mill and “Mascara.” Reality Show debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart, No. 2 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, No. 3 on the Digital Albums chart and No. 12 on the Billboard Top 200.

The record received critical acclaim from countless outlets including Yahoo! Music, ABC News and SPIN, who called Reality Show “Sullivan's best album to date”. The New York Times writes "Breakups loom throughout the album, all the better for Ms. Sullivan to let loose all the extremes of her voice: tearful, stinging, deep, airborne, velvety, raspy, aching and downright bluesy." Jazmine serves as the album’s executive producer and is the primary songwriter on all tracks, displaying her lyricism and storytelling ability more so than her first two offerings.

In 2008, Jazmine Sullivan released her debut album Fearless, which featured the chart topping hit singles "Need You Bad" and "Bust Your Windows," and earned the Philadelphia native seven Grammy nominations including Best New Artist. Jazmine released her second album, the critically acclaimed Love Me Back in 2010, of which the Associated Press declared as “something amazing” and consequently garnered her an eighth Grammy nomination for “Holding You Down (Goin’ In Circles).”

“The Reality Show” tour dates below:
March 1 - New Orleans, LA - House of Blues
March 4 - Atlanta, GA - Center Stage
March 5 - Charlotte, NC - The Fillmore
March 9 - Silver Spring, MD - The Fillmore
March 10 - Philadelphia, PA - The Theatre of Living Arts
March 11 - New York, NY - Irving Plaza
March 17 - Kansas City, MO - Arvest Bank Theatre
March 19 - St. Louis, MO - The Pageant
March 22 - Denver, CO - Gothic Theatre
March 25 - San Francisco - Mezzanine
March 27 - Los Angeles, CA - Club Nokia At LA Live
March 29 - Las Vegas, NV - House of Blues
