Erykah Badu

Atlantic Union Bank Pavilion

IMGoing is pleased to announce ERYKAH BADU with special guest coming to the Atlantic Union Bank Pavilion in Portsmouth on Wednesday, September 29 at 8 PM.

In 1997, following the release of her landmark debut album “Baduizm,” Erykah Badu was dubbed the “Queen of Neo-Soul” in the press. It was a fine enough title at the time; neo-soul was a nascent subgenre and journalists were trying to grapple with this new sound. But Badu was never just that, and was never meant to rule one thing. A forward-thinking creator, she was a gentle spirit and a badass, a multifaceted mix of tender R&B and old-school funk. So the title “Queen of Neo-Soul,” as regal as it sounds, could never capture Badu’s true depth — and 23 years later, she’s still defying the term.
