ESSENCE Festival has always been a place where music lovers can come together to see exclusive performances from the best of the best and this July, we’re pulling out all the stops to bring you front and center for the most talked-about reunion of the year.
Platinum-selling R&B girl group XSCAPE shocked fans earlier this year with the announcement that they were back together and preparing to hit the road, but that was just the beginning. Back like they never left, Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, LaTocha Scott and Tamika Scott will bring their endless catalogue of hits and fan-favorites to the 2017 ESSENCE Fest for their first full performance together in over 15 years.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the return of XSCAPE than in New Orleans with our fans at the world famous, Essence Festival,” the group said in a statement. “Essence Fest is so much more than a music festival, it’s a celebration of culture, music and entertainment. We are excited and honored to be included in an incredible lineup of artists and performers, including the living legend, Diana Ross!”
From classic chart-toppers like “Just Kickin It” and “Understanding,” to R&B playlist staples like “My Little Secret” and “Who Can I Run To,” ESSENCE Fest is excited and honored to play a part in bringing XSCAPE’s signature sound back to the forefront. Together with veteran music industry executive and reality TV mastermind Mona Scott-Young and her Monami Entertainment company, the ladies of XSCAPE are preparing to make this historic moment one fans won’t soon forget.
Be sure to grab your tickets to see XSCAPE light up the stage, alongside more of the biggest names in music, at the 2017 ESSENCE Festival® presented by Coca-Cola® in New Orleans this July!
