And you can win tickets thanks to NMESOUL.COM...

Following his sold-out debut gig at LONDON JAZZ CAFE and his US tour support with ERYKAH BADU, MUSIQ SOULCHILD has announced his first European tour, including five UK dates.

The singer, highly touted by NMESOUL.COM before the release of his gold-selling debut album ‘Aijuswanaseing (I Just Want To Sing)’ will be touring Germany, Holland and the UK to capitalise on the buzz surrounding his hip hop and classic soul inspired material.

To celebrate this, NMESOUL.COM, in association with Def Soul/Mercury records will be giving fans an opportunity to win a pair of tickets to Musiq’s London, Bristol and Manchester dates. Details will be published in NMESOUL.COM’s ‘Musiq Soulchild Weekend’ competition, coming soon.
