SWV and Xscape’s Queens of R&B Tour to hit MSG in July

The hip-hop soul music era of the 1990s will be back in full swing when SWV and Xscape hit the road this summer — with stops including New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Both chart-topping groups — recent stars of a drama-filled Bravo reality series — will co-headline the Queens of R&B Tour, set to play 30 cities from June 27 through Aug. 18.

Grammy winner Mya, ex-Bad Boy hitmakers Total and former Motown girl group 702 will join as special guests on select dates across North America.

SWV, comprised of original members Cheryl (Coko) Gamble, Tamara (Taj) Johnson-George and Leanne (Lelee) Lyons, will return to their New York City hometown with their Madison Square Garden stop on July 24. Tickets go on sale Friday.

In the two weeks following, they’ll also appear in Holmdel, N.J., Atlantic City, Bridgeport, Conn., Syracuse and Buffalo.

Sherri Shepherd first broke the news of the eagerly anticipated tour on her eponymous talk show ahead of Live Nation officially announcing it on Tuesday.

The concert promoter partnered with Monami Entertainment, the production company founded by Mona Scott-Young, the longtime manager of 2023 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Missy Elliott and the brainchild behind the “Love & Hip Hop” reality TV franchise.

“To announce this HERstorical tour during Women’s History Month means everything. It speaks to the power of our ability as women to overcome adversity and emerge triumphant,” Scott-Young said in Tuesday’s announcement.

“702, Total, Mya, SWV, and Xscape have all weathered storms and are still here and better than ever!” she added. “We are so excited to bring the fans an incredible and undeniable performance experience that truly celebrates R&B music.”
