R&B Atlantic Records recording artist and multi-Grammy nominated R&B star Tank has been making his way around on a 14 city “SAVAGE Tour,” in support of his new album. The tour kicked off on September 5 at the City Winery in Nashville and will wrap up on September 27 in Pittsburgh at the Rex Theater. Tickets for the tour can be purchased via Tank’s website (Click Here).
R&B singer Sammie who has been on the music scene since 1999, known for his chart topping billboard hit singles such as, “I Like It”, “Crazy Things I Do”, “Come With Me”, and more, opened up on the tour during their performance recently in Mobile, Alabama on September 17th at the Soul Kitchen. The show was hot, but what can you expect when you bring two powerful R&B vocalists on to a stage in one building!
The show kicked off at 8:00 pm and shortly after, Sammie hit the stage performing some of his hit singles, as well as songs from his latest album. His new album, “Coming of Age,” dropped on September 15th, and was perfect timing for the tour. I had a moment to speak to Sammie backstage and he mentioned that he had been knowing Tank for a while and that’s how he ended up being part of his tour. Sammie also told me that his new album had been in the works for a while now and of course just listening to it, you can tell he took time to master it. If you all have not got your copy of it yet then you definitely should.
Meanwhile, ladies of course went wild during Sammie’s performance! When he took off his shirt and started performing one of his prior mix-tape singles, “Wetter”, the atmosphere in the room got really steamy!
Sammie recently shared a clip from his performance on Instagram.
Tank will be releasing his eighth studio album SAVAGE this fall. The 11-track LP features appearances by Candice Boyd, J. Valentine, Ludacris, and labelmate Trey Songz as well as production from Da Internz, Harmony Samuels, and Cardiak. The lead single “When We” is a sensual “how to” that will lead listeners to a night of high powered unadulterated passion. Currently available for purchase (Click Here), “When We” is also the #1 Most Added song on the UAC charts playing in various cities including Los Angeles, Chicago, Grand Rapids, Little Rock as well as SiriusXM.
The album will be sold via all digital retailers as well as in stores.
Tank put on an amazing performance as well! He lit up the stage with some of his hit singles like, “Please Don’t Go”, “Maybe I Deserve” along with more songs from his soon to release album. Tank also showed major love to those celebrating their birthday’s by blowing out cash into the crowd! Let’s also add that when his shirt came off to reveal those ab’s, I’m sure many probably forgot what he was singing. Check out the clip below of his performance shared recently on his Instagram.
Tank and Sammie along with other opening acts put on an amazing performance in Mobile, Al and I can’t wait to see these two back on stage again!
