    NEW YORK, N.Y. (December 21, 2015) – Grammy Award winning artist CeeLo Green announces upcoming tour to celebrate the release of his new album HEART BLANCHE. The soul, pop siner g/ songwriter will kick off “The Love Train Tour” on Tuesday March 1, 2016, performing at intimate music venues in historic, southern U.S. cities to pay homage to the great music legends that inspired him, such as Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Ike and Tina Turner, and of course, B. B. King. The multi-platinum artist will make 11 stops along the tour starting in Washington, D.C. at the Howard Theatre and ending in Raleigh, N.C. at the Lincoln Theatre, playing new and classic CeeLo Green hits, as well as throwback covers from his musical inspirations that helped shape his own music and sound. More of an experience than a concert, CeeLo will take you back in time through music, wardrobe and the bespoke, southern setting at these hand-picked, landmark venues.    

    “I look forward to hitting the road to celebrate great music of the south, and reconnecting with all my loyal fans,” states CeeLo Green. “Come dressed for the occasion and help me re-create a moment from history at these iconic music venues. This tour will be very different from anything I’ve ever done before because of my choice of intimate venues and the variety of music I will perform from my new & classic hits to covers of some of my favorite songs.”

    CeeLo Green recently released his latest, solo album HEART BLANCHE on November 6th, 2015, along with a series of innovative companion videos for his new, hit songs including “Robin Williams,”  “Sign Of The Times,” and “Music To My Soul.” The current single “Working Class Heroes” is also featured in the new trailer for Barbershop 3: The Next Cut (cue at 1:26) and currently, his track “What Christmas Means to Me” from CeeLo’s Grammy Award nominated Christmas album CeeLo’s Magic Moment is also featured in the trailer for the new Tina Fey and Amy Poehler holiday comedy “SISTERS.” On December 22nd, CeeLo Green will be the musical guest on Live! With Kelly & Michael as their house band playing Christmas music from his critically acclaimed holiday album during the show’s annual Christmas Special. Additionally, the Atlanta-native will return to his hometown to perform during halftime for The Hawks vs. Knicks game on December 26th. Just recently, CeeLo was honored at the UK’s Mobo Awards with the “Outstanding Achievement Award” and also just finalized a new label joint venture with Sony Music to help the global music company sign top soul / R&B talent.

We are delighted to welcome him back to the Sony Music family, and look forward to partnering with him to develop great new artists and music through our new relationship,” said Doug Morris, CEO, Sony Music Entertainment.

    "The significance of the title MOTHERSHIP is in honor of my mother and grandmother, who were both mavericks in their respective fields, leaving me an inheritance of emotion, instinct, inner vision and industry.

I am honored to stand beside, and in extension of Sony, with a keen sense of appreciation for this opportunity. I'm certain I can rise to the occasion. It will be my pleasure and duty. Sincerely Yours, Soul Machine CeeLo Green.”
