GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist JAMES BLAKE announces the itinerary for his 2016 North American headline tour this fall. He first makes an appearance at Bon Iver’s Eaux Claires in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and then stops in major cities across the country including a night at the Cadillac Palace Theatre in Chicago on Sunday, October 9. Show time is 7:30pm.

Reserved seats ($39.50/$33.00/$28.00) become available on Friday, June 3 at 10:00am and can be purchased online at Ticketmaster.com and by phone at 800-745-3000. Tickets will also be available at the box office on the Friday, June 3.

BLAKE will be on tour supporting the release of his critically acclaimed third full-length offering, The Colour In Anything [Republic Records] which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Electronic/Dance charts. Get it HERE. He recently premiered the music video for “I Need A Forest Fire” [feat. Bon Iver]. It’s already amassed over 500K views. Watch it HERE.

Among its 17 tracks, the new record features the recently revealed songs “Modern Soul” and “Timeless”— both initially featured on his BBC Radio 1 Residency show. In addition, it includes “I Need a Forest Fire” [feat. Bon Iver] and “Radio Silence”, both of which premiered on BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac show. In addition to the Bon Iver feature, Frank Ocean and Rick Rubin also contributed to The Colour In Anything as co-writer and co-producer, respectively.

BLAKE’s touch can be felt throughout the modern music landscape. He lent his inimitable voice and production to “Forward” on Beyoncé’s chart-dominating #1 blockbuster Lemonade. In addition, he co-wrote the opener “Pray You Catch Me.” Following the release of 2013’s Overgrown, BLAKE garnered a “Best New Artist” nomination at the 2014 GRAMMY® Awards, a nod for “British Male Solo Artist” at the 2014 BRIT Awards and won Great Britain’s esteemed “Mercury Prize”. To cap it off BLAKE also took home the Ivor Novello Award for “Best Contemporary Song” for the track Retrograde. He’s graced the stage at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, and countless other festivals as well as performing sold out headline tours.
