Legendary Def Jam/Def Soul artist Ronald Isley returned to the world two weeks ago, and now picks up where he left off as senior member and lead singer of first generation Rock And Roll Hall Of Famers the Isley Brothers — with news of “The Celebration Tour” starting next weekend, and recording sessions underway for his first solo album release in seven years.
“The Celebration Tour” opens with a New Jersey-New York homecoming at Board Walk Hall in Atlantic City and the Uptown Paradise Theater in the Bronx on May 8th and 9th, respectively. The tour’s first leg wraps up at the Bonelli Park Jazz Festival in San Dimas, California on July 18th. Along the way, Ron will perform in the Caribbean on Tom Joyner’s Sea Cruise, May 17-18th. The aptly-titled “Celebration Tour” marks the first head lining trip under the Isley banner since March-April 2007.
