Seun Kuti Announces Egypt 80 American Tour

06/02/2011
.
(Big Hassle) Seun Anikulapo Kuti has announced a North American tour in support of his new album, From Africa With Fury: Rise.

On the tour, he'll be heading up Egypt 80, the extraordinary combo first fronted by his renowned father.

The tour begins in Los Angeles, CA at Grand Performances on July 15th and wraps up on July 30th at Floydfest in Floyd, VA.

Produced by Brian Eno, John Reynolds, and Kuti, with additional production by Godwin Logie, and mixed by John Reynolds and Tim Oliver, the mighty new From Africa With Fury: Rise captures Seun and Egypt 80's extraordinary power, fraught with the scorching rhythms and kinetic funk energy that has earned the band - as ever, under the leadership of alto saxophonist Lekan Animashaun - worldwide acclaim as one of today's most incendiary live acts.

7/15 Grand Performances - Los Angeles, CA
