Back in 2020, Jill Scott was supposed to embark on a 20th anniversary tour in celebration of her debut album, Who Is Scott?: Words and Sounds Vol I. The COVID-19 pandemic cut those plans short, but now, she’s back to hit the road for a 23rd anniversary tour.

The trek will resume in 2023, kicking off February 28 in Augusta, GA. Scott will play various cities across the U.S., including multi-show residencies in Washington, D.C. and her hometown of Philadelphia, where she’ll perform at The MET Philadelphia for the first time.

Her Philadelphia stop will also include a fundraiser at the Arden Theatre in support of her non-profit, the Blues Babe Foundation.

“My band and I were so excited three years ago, but that damn COVID shut us down,” Scott says in a statement. “Now, we outside! Come see me. Come feel again. Relive your favorite moments. Y’all ready to settle down and get with this?!? It’s a lot of love here.”

Presales begin Tuesday, December 6, and the general public sale begins Friday, December 9, at 10 a.m. local time at
