Kamasi Washington has announced a 2024 UK, Ireland and European headline tour – find all the details below.

The LA jazz multi-instrumentalist will hit the road in Europe this autumn in support of his new studio album ‘Fearless Movement’, which is due for release on May 3 via Young (pre-order here).

Kicking off in Rome on October 3, that leg also includes stop-offs in Milan, Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Porto, Bordeaux and Paris in the first half of the month.

From there, Washington will head to the UK and Ireland for shows in Manchester, London, Cardiff, Gateshead, Leeds, Glasgow and Dublin.


An additional run of European gigs is scheduled to take place between October 28 and November 17, including stops in Brussels, Warsaw, Krakow, Amsterdam, Berlin and Oslo.

The newly confirmed shows will follow Washington’s North American tour this spring/summer.

He has described the forthcoming ‘Fearless Movement’ as his dance album: “It’s not literal. Dance is movement and expression, and in a way it’s the same thing as music – expressing your spirit through your body. That’s what this album is pushing.”


The record features the likes of André 3000 on flute, George ClintonBJ The Chicago Kid, D-Smoke and Taj and Ras Austin of Coast Contra, Thundercat, Terrace Martin, Patrice Quinn, Brandon Coleman and DJ Battlecat.
