Jill Scott Celebrates The “Who Is Jill Scott?” album with a 23rd Anniversary Tour

At this point in time, I don’t think anybody REALLY needs to ask Who Is Jill Scott?, but rewind back to the year 2000, that was the question on everyone’s minds when we initially heard the soulful and sassy voice from “Gettin’ in the Way“. A leader and pioneer of the Neo-Soul era, Jill Scott burst onto the scene with her debut album “Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1” that sent the music industry into a frenzy.

In 2020, fans are still getting their lives to this album, so to celebrate the occasion, Jilly From Philly was originally planning to mount a massive tour for it’s 20th anniversary…then COVID-19 happened. While that may have stopped much of the World, apparently Jill never stopped working, going more in-depth in her work. Now that we’re somewhat out of the throws of the pandemic, she’s fully locked and loaded to announce the 23rd anniversary tour coming in 2023. The 20 date tour kicks off February 28 at Bell Auditorium in Augusta, Georgia and will electrify auditoriums, theaters, and music halls throughout the nation including Washington, DC, Nashville, Detroit, Philadelphia and ending in Los Angeles.

If you were there from the beginning but MISSED her on her very first tour, this will be a treat because Scott will play the iconic album front to back, with hits from her iconic debut album, such as “The Way,” “A Long Walk” and other musical stories.


“My band and I were so excited three years ago, but that damn COVID shut us down,” said Scott. “Now, we outside! Come see me. Come feel again. Relive your favorite moments. Ya’ll ready to settle down and get with this?!? It’s a lot of love here.”

Pre-sales for the Who is Jill Scott? Words & Sounds Vol. 1 23rd Anniversary Tour begin on Tuesday, December 6, 2022, and public on sale begins on Friday, December 9, 2022 at 10am local time. Visit missjillscott.com for tickets and the latest updates.
