Michael McDonald and Chaka Khan will unite for a massive co-headlining tour this summer. McDonald will kick off the trek with a solo gig June 19th at the Motor City Casino in Detroit, Michigan, though Khan will join him the next night at the Rose Music Center at the Heights in Huber Heights, Ohio. The tour wraps August 4th at the Green Music Center in Ronhert, Park, California. While Khan and McDonald will perform together at most gigs, a handful of shows will only feature McDonald.
Tickets will begin to go on sale to the general public February 8th at 10 a.m. local time. American Express cardholders will have access to pre-sale tickets in select markets between today, February 5th, and February 7th at 10 p.m. local time. Complete information is available on McDonald's website.
McDonald will also embark on a quick run of shows that starts February 16th in Miami, Florida and ends March 1st in Indio, California. He'll hit the road again this spring for another leg that starts April 5th in Albuquerque, New Mexico and wraps April 20th in San Diego, California.
Last year, McDonald released a new holiday record, Season of Peace: The Christmas Collection, while in 2017 he put out Wide Open. That album marked his first solo effort since 2008's Soul Speak and his first LP of original material since 2000's Blue Obsession.
Khan, meanwhile, is set to release her new album, Hello Happiness, February 15th. The LP marks her first solo effort since 2007's Funk This.
