Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Femi Kuti, a son of Fela Kuti has released the dates and cities he will perform at on his forthcoming tour of the United States.

Femi Kuti and his Positive Force band will kick off their tour of the US on Wednesday June 29, 2016 at The Filmore in San Francisco and wrap up on July 30, 2016 in Vancouver.
