R&B star D'angelo is set to headline his first concert at New York's iconic Apollo Theater, nearly 25 years after he made his debut as a singer on the same stage.

The reclusive star competed and won the venue's famous Amateur Night at the Apollo contest when he was 16 years old, and used his winnings from that performance to buy recording equipment, which he used to make his hit debut album, Brown Sugar.

And on 7 February (15), D'Angelo will hit the stage once again for a one-night-only gig, performing songs from his new critically acclaimed album, Black Messiah - his first release in 14 years.

D'Angelo and his band the Vanguard will hit the road for The Second Coming Tour in Europe this spring (15).
