    Iconic soul/R&B vocalist Aaron Neville announced that his Christmas Celebration tour will travel across the south and southwest of the U.S. this December. Christmas (news) in July! It's hot, it's humid, but we're looking forward to the holidays already. What better way to celebrate than with news of the Nev's holiday tour?

    Neville is currently on the road until Aug. 11 and will continue to tour the states this December kicking off the holiday tour in Robinsonville, MS with stops in Louisiana, Texas, Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. See full list of tour dates below.

    The Christmas Celebration tour will include performances of new songs from Aaron Neville's upcoming full-length album set to be released this Winter on EMI's Blue Note Records. The record, produced by Keith Richards and Blue Note Records President Don Was, finds Neville revitalizing some of his favorite songs from the doo-wop era and beyond.

    "Aaron Neville is one of the most expressive and soulful artists of all time, it's such a thrill to hear him sing," Was says. "His vocals have a way of reaching into your heart and stirring something really deep inside. It's a huge honor to welcome him to Blue Note Records and to be involved, along with the legendary Keith Richards, in the production of this album."

    All of the tracks were hand-picked by Neville himself as they are songs that have remained close to his heart since he was a child. "When I was a kid, doo-wop was like medicine to me," Neville explains. "I didn't care what else was goin' on in the world as long as I could sing along with Pookie Hudson and The Spaniels, The Flamingos, The Clovers, Sonny Til & the Orioles, Clyde McPhatter—I was like a kid in a candy store."
