Andra Day sets new tour, will begin in San Diego

Rising San Diego R&B vocal star Andra Day is rising up anew.

Day, who performed a show-stealing version of her inspirational ballad “Rise Up” during this year’s Grammy Awards telecast, will kick off her 2016 North American headlining tour with a Nov. 2 show at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay. Her early March concert at Observatory North Park drew a sold-out crowd to hear the singer, who last year memorably collaborated with Steve Wonder. The iconic musician was instrumental in helping her sign a national record deal with Warner Bros. and makes a cameo on one song on her debut album, “Cheers to the Fall.”

After beginning her tour in San Diego, Day will perform in 17 other North American cities. Her coast to coast concert trek concludes with a Dec. 7 show in Houston. All of the dates appear below, along with ticket information.

Earlier this week, Day filmed a performance on the PBS music show “Austin City Limits.” She dedicated “Rise Up” to the victims of last week’s horrific mass shooting in Orlando. Her episode of the show will air in the fall. She performed earlier this month at the massive Bonnaroo music festival in Tennessee

Day discussed her music and career at length earlier this year in an in-depth Union-Tribune interview.

Tickets for all dates on Day’s tour go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. A pre-sale for Citi card-holders begins today, Tuesday, at 10 a.m. There is also a pre-sale for members of Day’s fan club.

Tickets for her Nov. 2 San Diego show at Humphreys are priced at $35 each, plus service charges, and will be available at all Ticketmaster outlets, online at and by phone at (800) 745-3000. Dinner and hotel packages are also available
