VIDEO: D'Angelo RETURNS To The Stage In Stockholm, Kicks Off European Tour!

Oh...there you are Mr. D'Angelo. It's been over 11 years and 2 U.S. Presidents since we've seen D'Angelo perform live....or barely anywhere in public for that matter. But he kicked off his European D-Tour last night in Stockholm, Sweden. Video inside...

 

In his first live performance since the 2000 Voodoo Tour, D'Angelo played to Sweden's capital last night...rocking long braids and swole arms (remember when his fitness instructor said they've been in the gym constantly?).

He was joined by his drummer Chris Dave and frequent collaborator Pino Palladino for last night's show--which he seemed ecstatic to be performing.  And his next stops are Copenhagen, Paris, Amsterdam, London, Oslo, Zurich, and Hamburg.  And Questlove says D's upcoming album we've been waiting forever for, James River, is "97% done."

Peep the vids:

Yes Europe loves and supports

Yes Europe loves and supports Neo soul, thats why his 2 of his concerts were sold out in one day and they added a third one on demand wich is sold out too.. I find it ignorant too say : ' Work out the kinds over there in Europ and bring back to US a super set!' What? are we less then then America? We waited even longer then you guys because dude didn't travel that much, needles too say he will be getting MAJOR support & LOVE over here in EUROPE.. ..

People who have never

People who have never travelled don't realize how BIG real music is in Europe. No Europeans are not less than Americans. Thank you for supporting true musicians, without you guys some of them wouldn't be able to keep on performing.

I don't give a damn WHAT he

I don't give a damn WHAT he looks like... All I know is that "Me and Those Dreamin' Eyes Of Mine" is gonna need a little bit of that 'Brown Sugar' in my ear while I'm 'Cruisin' the highway...or when a 'Lady' like me 'Feel(s) Like Makin' Love'.... Nothin' (else) even matters.....

totally agree. like some

totally agree. like some other commenters pointed out, it is sad that in our country image is more important than substance. i find myself listening to cd's converted on my itunes from the early 2000's as opposed to new music that's being put out. not to say some good stuff hasn't surfaced, but artists like D'Angelo are a dime a dozen. He is a TRUE artist, and thank God for his gift. I pray he has a support system around him that can help him continue to flourish and leave those drug demons in his past. The enemy is constantly trying to re-route us from fulfilling our purpose. I hope his career is more successful now that it has ever been. Bless you Brotha! Stay UP!!

I agree with you but you are

I agree with you but you are using the term "dime a dozen" wrong. That means he's common place and he is not as you just said. But I agree with all you said.

D'Angelo can get it three

D'Angelo can get it three ways from Sunday, five ways from Saturday and upside down, inside out. Yes he always seemed to have a good spirit and weight or no weight, brotha was always fine to me. Don't necessary like the braids but we can work with it.

Not feeling the hair,

Not feeling the hair, huh? Not feeling the hair, huh? D'Angelo is going to be disappointed to know that since the dawn of the internet age, fans have been hypercritical and he won't be able to just woo em w/ his voice and chiseled chest. He's going to have to put his whole life on display, get a reality tv show, and hire a photographer to photograph his every move, in order for people to care about his MUSIC.

I was talking to someone recently from Va, who's actually close to D'Angelo...and they said that's EXACTLY why he wasn't in hurry to come back. Besides his other *ahem* issues. He felt he couldn't live up to the LAST image of him from the "Untitled" video. And was very uncomfortable with the scrunity that comes with how he "looked". He went to Europe first to get his set tight and because its more about the music over there.

I agree with you because I

I agree with you because I heard the same thing. Questlove said it in an article and recently a person working with him said the same thing. He's not gonna look like he did 10 years ago, but I don't care. I like him for his music and it's sad most of out artist have to go out of their home country because hey feel they won't be accepted in the states.

Well tell your friend to tell

Well tell your friend to tell D'Angelo, there are some people who are still interested in just the music. And while it may not be the masses anymore, we still count, and we should be the only ones that matter. From reading all the negative comments on EVERY other celebrity, and how these commenters feel ENTITLED to be so hurtful, I hope he as a strong will and can ignore it all. As much as these people don't realize it, they are the vultures out to eat you alive. America is full of dream killers who like to laugh at your failure and criticize your success. I hope he remembers that and can handle it.

I was just reading about

I was just reading about Angie Stone having a child with D'Angelo. When they first started dating, she was 34 and he was 19.....what could they have possibly had in common? To each is own, I guess. But, you really can't blame him for not staying with her. He became a star and had to experience life.

I mean looking at these

I mean looking at these comments ,THIS IS HOW YOU KNOWWW BLACK FOLKS DON'T FUCKING TRAVEL!!!!!!Ofcourse people in Europe know who D'angelo is, THEY ARE SOME OF THE BIGGEST NEO-SOUL SUPPORTERS IN THE FUCKING WORLD!!!One of the biggest artist when i was over in the UK was Bilal !!!!! In Africa as well, although they kinda getting pop and hip-hop cultured out, which is not good!!Africa have almost every instrument in the world, get into that soul music like Nneka!!!!!! I mean while Jazz is DYING IN AMERICA!!!!!!!!In Europe they LOVE THAT SHITTTTT!!!American is fucking over Good Music with this pop and hiphop shit!!!! Niggas eat that shit up!!! Get back to making soul music!!!! I see why the brotha Don Cornelius got mad once that pussy ass Disco shit kinda dumb down the music, But HIPHOP THAT SHIT WAS JUST THE ICING ON THE CAKE!!Destroyed everything and now Music that Black people make was watered down...Shit now they have WHITE PEOPLE IN EUROPE that got MORE SOULLLLLLL IN THEY MUSIC THANNNNNNNNNN BLACKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK PEOPLEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

*minus the cussing* I totally

*minus the cussing* I totally CoSIGN! One of the pioneers of Neo-Soul was a Black British guy called OMAR. People in Europe are more open to various types of music than in America where they are hung up on looks, gimmicks and pop/hip-hop. People like Janis Joplin, Etta James, EWF, heck Stevie Wonder, Lionel Ritchie, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, James Taylor, Aretha Franklin etc wouldn't have gotten signed in today music industry! NO WAY. It is sad that people like D'Angelo, Bilal, Living Color, Brand New Heavies etc have to go to Europe in order to make a living playing music because folks in America have tunnel vision when it comes to music.

TRust when I tell u Dangelo

TRust when I tell u Dangelo can sell out venues over in the US too. Maxwell, Jill Scott, and Erykah Badu are doing just fine. Maxwell is an arena artist in the US. Lauryn Hill would be an arena artist too if she was a better performer and her band wasnt so whack...... I hope he announces a North American tour soon.

Mybad for the cursing , but

Mybad for the cursing , but sista when i was over in Europe it felt like a brotha was in heaven!!!They got they own little towns and hot spots where they play nothing but jazz, soul, and r&b music. I damn near wanted to give up UNITED STATES citizenship just to stay there, we listen to the media way to much in the US , thinking this is just the best place in the world AND it's a great place to live, but as far as culture,music, etc NOO IT'S NOT. But after i left and came back here, they got all this wack ass Beyonce playing, IT'S JUST THE SAMEEEEEEE PEOPLE, OVER AND OVER and they have no soul in their music. But yo im still young "early 20's" a couple of years from now i plan on moving to another country.It's too damn dead over here.

If you truly are a

If you truly are a "renaissance" man, go to Toronto or Montreaux. Color blind, good food, music and people. Join the military, the war is over. And they will pay for you to travel. And try satellite radio, there you will find a PLETHORAAAAAA (lol)of music.

Don't know much about Toronto, but i heard about Montreux. I was a military kid, so hell no i wont be joining the military.Im not about to work to build their power structure ,we been doing it for way too many years.
