2.23.10 Brother Ali, BK-One & Fashawn kick off Breakin' Dawn Tour in March

This spring, acclaimed Minneapolis rapper Brother Ali will set out on his second extensive North American tour in support of his latest album, Us. The tour, called the "Breakin' Dawn Tour", also features one of the biggest new hip-hop acts to break in 2009, California-based MC, Fashawn. The trek starts on March 29th in Fargo, winding its way through Canada and hits new cities in the southern and eastern regions of America. An ambitious task yes but nothing new for the dedicated and laborious Rhymesayers wordsmith - a true testament to the dedication and reach of his fans who cannot get enough. His heavy sound and thought-provoking rhymes have created a high demand by listeners from the farthest reaches of the continent. Now even more fans will have a chance to see this legend live. Upon completion of these dates, Brother Ali will have played a total of 77 North American cities in support of Us, which Pitchfork called "the most deeply thought-provoking work of Brother Ali's career".

Brother Ali's last North American tour, where he hit over 51 cities, gave him the opportunity to perform in New York with the Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, sell out two hometown shows at First Ave in Minneapolis, and share a stage with Justin Timberlake! You never know who will turn up at a Brother Ali show -it's one not to miss!
