    Saul Williams has announced an extensive North American tour in support of his latest LP, The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust!, which was produced by Trent Reznor and released in a DRM-free digital format on November 1. "The Tar Spangled Banner Tour" starts on March 12 and 13 at South By Southwest and winds down on April 23 in Salt Lake City, UT.

    "The Niggytardust concept sets me free to do more on stage with costume, etc. than one might expect from a regular Saul Williams show," Williams said in a statement. "It allows me to put my theatre training to use. I've also thought long and hard about all the discussion surrounding racial epithets etc. and chose this title as a means of furthering the dialogue while also showing how creativity will outlive and outshine hatred of any kind."
