Neo-soul songstress and certified weirdo Erykah Badu will perform at the Waterfront Theatre at the American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami on April 8.
The concert will come only days after the release of her fifth studio album, New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh), due March 30. Badu last performed in South Florida in May 2008, when she shared the stage with The Roots at Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton.
Whereas 2008's New Amerykah Part One (4th World War) was a mostly funky, experimental romp through digital music-making, Part Two promises to be more grounded in Badu's soul roots. First single "Window Seat" is organic and moody, and Web-only single "Jump Up In The Air (Stay There)" with Lil' Wayne and Bilal is a psychedelic party with an orchestral twist.
No ticket prices have been announced yet, but tickets should go on sale February 26 at 10 a.m.
