Grammy, Emmy and twice Tony Award-winning singer, composer, director, author, actor, and playwright Billy Porter has announced his next tour: Black Mona Lisa Tour: Volume 1.
For six weeks this spring, Billy will grace stages in 25 U.S. cities, kicking off on April 29 in Seattle at Paramount Theatre, visiting major markets such as New York and Los Angeles, as well as his hometown of Pittsburgh. His tour will conclude at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket on June 3.
Expect a full band backed by a video installation fronted by Billy telling his life story through song. This 90-minute powerhouse event will feature his chart-topping hits “Love is on the Way” and “Love Yourself,” a tinge of Broadway, a nod to Pose, and stunning performances of future pop classics from his forthcoming new album, Black Mona Lisa.
Billy commented, “It’s really the first time that I’ve been able to fully express myself and who I am through my music. Through my mainstream pop music space. It’s like my magnum opus. It’s everything to me. You’ll really get a glimpse into who I am even deeper with this music.”
