Multi-Award-winning Jamaican dancehall star, Sean Paul has announced his 2022 US Scorcha Tour dates that will include features from his 8th studio album set to be released later in the year, entitled “Scorcha.”
Returning to the stage after two years because of the pandemic, Paul said he is “eager and excited” to reconnect with his fans live and in-person.
Almost a year after the release of his GRAMMY-nominated 7th studio album “Live N Livin,” the dancehall star returned to the studio and released “Dynamite” in November 2021, a second collaboration with Sia, following their smash-hit “Cheap Thrills,” according to Brooklyn-based, Jamaican entertainment publicist, Ronnie Tomlinson.
To add to his accomplishments, just this year his single “No Lie,” featuring Dua Lipa went double platinum in the UK, and his “Live N Livin” album is nominated for Best Reggae Album for the 64th annual Grammys, noted Tomlinson, chief executive officer of the New York-based Destine Media.
“All this excitement has built-up anticipation for a long-awaited return of Sean Paul live,” she said. “Last year, Sean Paul told fans on Twitter that come next spring he would be touring again, and he kept his promise.
“The 10-show lineup is anticipated to be ‘fire,’ as Paul will scorch the stage starting at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Fl, and closing the tour in Monterey, California, May 29,” Tomlinson added.
Paul said: “While a digital platform may keep you connected, it is no substitute for being physically interactive with fans.”
Having not left Jamaica since the start of the pandemic, Tomlinson said Paul “has never been more ready to get back with his dancehall fans and have a party in person.”
