Erykah Badu Will Play a Special Show to Celebrate 20 Years of ‘Baduizm' In London

Erykah Badu will perform at the Eventim Apollo in London this summer to celebrate the 20th anniversary of 'Baduizm.'

Londoners, get excited! Queen Mother, Erykah Badu, is returning to London this summer for a special anniversary show in celebration of the 20th anniversary of her classic album, Baduizm.


She'll be taking her magic to the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith on July 6, for what will be her first show in the city in five years. Check here for more details and ticket info.

Badu's monumental debut turned two decades old in February, just two weeks before her 46th birthday.

It seems that despite her veteran status, neither Badu, nor her music, ever get old.
