Just ahead his album release day, Atlanta singer-songwriter Leon Bridges announced a U.S. tour in support of Gold-Diggers Sound that stretches into spring of 2022.

Here in Philly, we’ve got a relatively early and intimate engagement with him; Bridges will headline Union Transfer on September 27th with support from Fort Worth artist Abraham Alexander. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 30th at 10 a.m., and more information can be found here.

When he released the single “Motorbike” back in May, Bridges said that Gold Diggers Sound would be his most personal album yet, and the product of serious creative focus: “With immense joy, greater purpose, and sometimes doubt, I labored over these eleven songs, but the record truly came together when I immersed myself in everything Gold-Diggers, making it my home, my escape, and the center of my creative world.”

Watch the video for “Motorbike” and check out Bridges’ full tour schedule below. For more on the latest in local concert news, consult the XPN Concert Calendar.
