It’s been seven years since Erykah Badu launched an official tour, back when New Amerykah Part Two (Return Of The Ankh) was released. But today the singer/rapper/DJ announced a worldwide tour that includes cities from New Orleans to Montreux, and from her hometown of Dallas to Tokyo. She’s calling it the Badu Vs. Everythang Tour:

The neo-soul icon is known to use her live shows to benefit or celebrate causes she believes in—gracing the stage of the Texas Veggie Fair (she’s vegan) last year, donating a portion of Detroit concert earnings toward justice for rape victims—so leave it to the trained doula to also work in a stop at the Midwives Conference in Chicago before heading to Japan.
