After weeks of anticipation, acclaimed singer-songwriter and producer Raphael Saadiq will reunite with his brother D’Wayne Wiggins and his cousin Tim Christian Riley, to tour as multi-platinum R&B group Tony! Toni! Toné! for the first time in nearly 25 years. The reunion tour will hit 25 cities including Charlotte on September 22 at Ovens Auditorium and Greensboro on October 19 at Steve Tanger Center.
Tony! Toni! Toné! released their debut album Who? in 1988 followed by The Revival in 1990, and their most commercially successful project, Sons of Soul, in 1993 before disbanding in 1996 after the release of their fourth album, House of Music.
Saadiq was also a member of The Ummah, a music collective alongside D’Angelo, Q-Tip, and J Dilla, and the founding member of the supergroup Lucy Pearl with Dawn Robinson and Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest. He has produced music for Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige, En Vogue, D’Angelo, Whitney Houston, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Solange Knowles, John Legend, and many more throughout his career, also releasing five studio albums as a solo artist with his latest, Jimmy Lee, in 2019.
