Erykah Badu has revealed plans for another major world tour. Titling the trek ‘Badu Vs. Everythang,’ the soul and R&B icon will launch the series of shows at Birmingham, Alabama’s Funk Fest — which is happening later this month — and conclude the tour five months later in Japan. Badu plans to hit several world-renowned festivals, high-capacity venues in cities like Los Angeles, and arenas for her upcoming concerts.

Courtesy of Pitchfork, you can check out the itinerary for Erykah Badu’s upcoming ‘Badu Vs. Everythang’ world tour below. Earlier this year, Erykah Badu put together a “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” playlist to support the promotional campaign for 2 Chainz’s new project.
