Legend. Icon. Songstress. Diva.
Very few artists ever ascend to the rarefied heights that those four words symbolize. Toni Braxton is one of those few. This year commemorates her 25th anniversary in the music industry and what better way to celebrate than with a world tour.
Behind timeless hits such as “Love Shoulda Brought You Home,” “Another Sad Love Song,” “Breathe Again,” “Seven Whole Days,” “Un-Break My Heart” and “He Wasn’t Man Enough, this multimillion-selling R&B/pop pioneer actress and seven-time Grammy Award-winner hits SA shores this November.
The Johannesburg show will take place on the 9th November at the Ticketpro Dome and the Cape Town at the Grand Arena, Grandwest Casino on 12th November.
Reflecting on her silver anniversary and hit album Sex & Cigarettes, Toni Braxton says she’s still in love with music and the possibilities it affords. “There have been moments when I felt defeated; felt I let myself down,” she says. “Even if I fail, music gives me enough strength to try something different. I’ve come full circle—yet there are still so many things to do.”
