    Labelle - Back To NowLabelle just announced their first national tour since 1977 kicking off Dec 19th at the Apollo Theater in NYC. The long awaited reunion of Sarah Dash, Nona Hendryx and Patti LaBelle as Labelle released one of the most anticipated albums of the year  Back to Now (Verve). Some stops on this limited run, Labelle's first since 1977, include the Chicago Theatre in Chicago (Jan. 10), Fox Theatre in Detroit (Jan. 18), Paramount Theatre in Oakland, Calif. (Jan. 30) and Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. (Feb. 13).

    Labelle has been called "a phenomenon whose music helped change the very idea of what pop and the artists who made it -- especially women singers previously confined to 'girl groups' -- could be". (Los Angeles Times, 10.12.08). The NY Daily News explains, "As in all the best harmony groups, these singers resonate in a special way as one." It is the combination of "LaBelle's soaring sass, Hendryx's rock-edged stance and Dash's earthy accents" (Billboard, 10.18.08) that make for a unique and electrifying combination not to be missed.

    Tickets for the Apollo show are available at Ticketmaster.com, with other shows going on sale in the near future!
