GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING AND MULTI-PLATINUM SELLING ARTIST SEAL ANNOUNCES SUMMER NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

SEAL WILL PERFORM HITS FROM HIS LATEST CHART TOPPING ALBUM, SOUL 2

 

On the heels of sold out European and Australian tours, Multi-Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Seal announced today that he will embark on a North American tour this summer. Seal will hit major cities across the US and Canada including LA, New York, Nashville and Montreal.  Fresh off of touring in Australia, Seal is bringing his talents back to North America to perform fan favorites and songs from his eighth studio album, Soul 2, which debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard charts. The tour kicks off on July 6th in Montreal, QC and tickets are available beginning Friday, April 6th at www.ticketmaster.com or visit www.seal.com for more information.

"I love my fans and I love the connection I have with them when I perform live,” said Seal. “I can’t wait to bring this show to North America.”

Soul
2 finds Seal joining forces once again with legendary producer Trevor Horn (Seal, Seal II, Human Being) who shares production duties on the album with Soul producer David Foster (Soul, Commitment). This time Seal brings his silky, inimitable voice to a lush collection of romantic soul classics primarily from the '70s, including those by Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Al Green, and Teddy Pendergrass, among others.

Over the course of a remarkable career that spans more than two decades, Seal has won four Grammy Awards and sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, enjoying success across numerous genres of music. His emotional, romantic love songs, such as "Prayer For the Dying," the Grammy Award-winning "Kiss From A Rose," and "Don't Cry" (all from 1994's Seal II), and "Love's Divine" (from 2003's Seal IV), delighted fans and earned him critical acclaim. He has also seen great success in the dance/pop music world beginning with his roots in Britain's house music/rave scene with his debut 1991 album and returning to those roots with 2007's dancefloor-friendly System. In September 2010, Seal released his seventh studio album Commitment, which peaked at No. 11 on the U.K. chart giving Seal his fifth Top 20 album in his native Britain.
