yasiin bey, The Apollo Theater Adds Second Concert Date

Performances Are Among the Legendary Emcee’s Final US Shows

Additional Date: Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Due to popular demand, the Apollo Theater has announced that it has added a second show on Thursday, December 22nd for yasiin bey (formerly known as Mos Def), one of hip hop’s most influential artists. These special engagements follow bey’s announcement earlier this year of his retirement from the music business and will kick-off at the Apollo Theater on Wednesday, December 21st.

Every show will offer a unique musical experience for audiences with bey performing songs from a different album each night including The New Danger, True Magic, The Ecstatic, and Black on Both Sides, alongside new material. He will also be joined by surprise special guests for each performance. Yasiin bey has appeared at the Apollo Theater multiple times throughout his career.

Following his final U.S. performances, bey will venture to Africa to focus on his arts, culture, and lifestyle collective A Country Called Earth (ACCE). He will also continue to pursue his newly formed passions as a painter and his art, as well as that of various other ACCE artists, will be anonymously displayed at the Apollo Theater and the Kennedy Center.
