Multiple Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Tank is rolling into Mobile this weekend for an evening of rhythm and blues. This Atlantic recording artist is stopping in the Azalea City on his SAVAGE Tour, in support of his upcoming album “Savage,” set for release Sept. 29.

For “Savage,” Tank welcomed guests such as Candace Boyd, Trey Songz, J. Valentine and Ludacris. Da Internz, Cardiak and Harmony Samuels served as the album’s production team. If the past serves as evidence for the future, Tank fans can expect more suave vocals that deliver this artist’s poignant lyrical poetry.

Sammie will prep the crowd for Tank’s set. This R&B vocalist was barely into his teens when he got his start. Since then, he has grown from a teen pop sensation to one of the smoothest voices in R&B. Sammie’s syncopated flow and vocal control testify to his artistic maturity shaped by experience.
