Soul singer Erykah Badu has announced a date with the City Beautiful this fall. And when you are summoned by royalty of this caliber, you'd best sit up and take notice.

Badu plans to grace the City Beautiful's Addition Financial Arena with her presence on Saturday, Nov. 13. Support for the show comes from fellow Southern music stalwarts in rappers Goodie Mob from Atlanta and Texas' Scarface.

Tickets for Badu's concert go on sale, Friday, Sept. 3, at 10 a.m. through Addition Financial Arena. (Style note: the arena has recently adopted a clear bag policy, so take that into account when planning your fit.)
