Tony! Toni! Toné! founding member and fearsome solo artist Raphael Saadiq has announced an extensive North American tour set for early next year to promote his comeback album Jimmy Lee. And one of only two chances for Floridian fans to hear Saadiq's challenging new work live will be in the City Beautiful.

Jimmy Lee is Saadiq's first album in eight years, inspired by the untimely death of his brother, and includes guest spots from Kendrick Lamar and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (Midnight Hour). Aside from Jimmy Lee, you can also find Saadiq guesting on Alicia Keys' new song "Show Me Love."

Raphael Saadiq headlines the Plaza Live on Friday, Jan. 31, 2020, at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
