R&B artist Gallant announced his upcoming Fall headlining “Too Good To Be” tour, which includes a stop at Union Transfer. The name of the tour is quite fitting, considering fellow ascendant R&B star Jamila Woods is joining Gallant for the first leg of the tour.

Gallant broke onto the scene with the release of his debut album, 2016’s Ology, and rode that wave of success well into 2017, opening for John Legend on his “Darkness and Light” tour. While no official release date has been set for the highly anticipated follow-up album, Gallant has released two new songs, “Gentlemen” in April, and “Doesn’t Matter” just earlier today.

Some of Gallant’s previous Philly dates included a sold out evening at The Foundry the night before he performed at Made in America in 2016. Jamila Woods’ most recent Philly appearance also happened to be sold out, an August 2017 date at Johnny Brenda’s. Check out photos by The Key’s Koof Ibi Umoren to relive Woods’ set and prepare for her next Philly appearance.

Tickets for Union Transfer’s Saturday, October 27 show go on sale this Friday, May 11 at 10 a.m. Check out XPN’s concert calendar for tickets and more information, and be sure to keep an ear to the ground for Gallant’s sophomore album announcement.
