Black Star cancels dates but not tour, takes detour to Seattle and San Francisco

October 11, 2011

News that Black Star cancelled their tour dates with Live Nation must have been disappointing to many, but we know for sure that Talib Kweli and, most definitely, Yasiin Bey are not done touring yet. Fresh from debuting their new single on the Colbert Report, Black Star will be back on the road next month and have scheduled two west coast appearances: Seattle at the Showbox SoDo on November 5 (tickets on sale now at Ticketmaster) and San Francisco at the Mezzanine, November 15 (tickets will be available via Ticketmaster this Friday, October 14).

Here’s the flyer for the San Francisco event, and a reprise of their Colbert Report debut of “Fix Up”.
