RICHIE Spice kicked off his European tour to a capacity crowd at the Kwaki Festival in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on August 4.
Dubbed The Healing, the tour is named after his recently released 15-track mixtape.
“It is a collector’s item. People can buy it for many reasons. You can buy it for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, a birthday. It’s a good product,” he said.
“I think it’s time. Time and demand — fans kept on asking as they were starved for a little while,” he continued.
The Healing has production credits from Clive Hunt, Stephen Stanley and Snow Cone. Its listing includes Together We Stand, S unny Day, and Teach It In The School.
The singer gave a synopis of the the set’s message.
“The message is all about life, the justice system, the words of Emperor Selassie I, the words or Marcus Garvey, the type of words that people are supposed to be listening to, abiding and living by,” he said.
“We also have songs for the ladies, so it’s a whole mixture of different types of music combined and packaged for the album,” he added.
The singer’s next gig is slated for Winchester, United Kingdom, at the Boomtown Festival on August 13; then on August 19 at the Overjam Festival in Slovenia; and the Sound Show in Geneva, Switzerland, on August 25 and 26.
Richie Spice is also booked for The Black Music Festival in the United Kingdom on August 27; Sweden on August 30; then back to London, United Kingdom, on August 31 and September 2.
He plays in Hamburg Germany on September 7; and Zurich and St Gallen in Switzerland on September 8 and 9, respectively; Prague on September 12; and Vienna Austria on September 13.
The tour concludes in German cities Stuttgart, Dusseldorf and Berlin on September 15, 16 and 17, respectively.
