Doors open: 19:30
Tour name: Bilal + Pieces of A Man...
The American soul/jazz fusion star and vocal sensation live in Manchester for what promises to be one of the hit nights of the summer.
Considered one of the great voices of soul fusion, Bilal released his debut album 1st Born Second in 2001, which boasted the popular single Soul Sista. The follow-up, Love for Sale (2006), was shelved but leaked entirely online and has since become an underground classic.
In the following years, Bilal has collaborated and performed with some of the industry’s most prominent artists including Beyonce, Common, Jay-Z, Erykah Badu, Robert Glasper, Boney James, Musiq and The Roots among others. He also covered Radiohead’s High & Dry for the 2006 Radiohead tribute, Exit Music: Songs With Radio Heads. Bilal also appears in Dave Chappelle’s Block Party.
Support for the show comes from Pieces Of A Man - an original neo-soul band based in Manchester, UK.
Drawing inspiration from everything from the vaults through to the present day neo-soul heavyweights, Pieces present a strong, unique sound, showcasing original material that’s justifiably receiving acclaim wherever it’s heard. The group has a heavy groove with an expansive vocal that belies the numbers of its 4 members.
This concert will begin at 8pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open from 5.30pm for delicious food and drinks
Price: £13.00 / £15.00
