Fresh off six Grammy nominations, Jon Batiste is taking his music to the people.
The former “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” bandleader just announced his 24-concert ‘Uneasy Tour: Purifying the Airwaves for the People’ that will send him to venues all over North America in support of his recently released album “World Music Radio” from February through April 2024.
That includes a headlining gig at New York City’s Beacon Theatre on Tuesday, March 19.
“For my first solo run I wanted to play in smaller venues and curate experiences that let me really feel the people while I play,” the 37-year-old Louisiana native shared with The Associated Press.
“Think of these 24 shows less as a tour and more as a series of 24 not to be missed experiences, each being one-of-a-kind.”
And if you want to make sure you don’t miss these “not to be missed experiences,” you can scoop up tickets for the winter/spring tour as soon as today.

The wide-ranging record spans 21 tracks and shows off the talented musician’s gift to create songs that get listeners on their feet in no time.
For us, the highlight was “Worship,” which is equal parts inspirational and jubilant, creating a whole new sound in the process.
Other standout bops include the romantic slow dance of “My Heart,” the endlessly catchy “CALL NOW (504 305-8269) and the lo-fi charms of the country-fried “Master Power.”
