Shout out to Luke James because he just scored a major, potentially career-changing gig, as the opening performer for Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter Tour in Europe.
According to a news release, Luke was personally chosen for this opportunity by Queen Bey herself, who said:
“Luke James is a gifted singer and songwriter and what he does on stage with his pure falsetto is incredible. I am excited to have him join the tour and to introduce this soulful singer to an audience in Europe that will be discovering a true star.”
Beyonce’s tour kicked off this Monday, April 15, in Serbia and she’ll be headed to Europe in a few more days, starting that leg of her tour in Paris, France, April 24 and ending it May 29 in Stockholm, Sweden. This isn’t the first time Bey and Luke have shared a stage together, the 2013 Grammy nominee for Best R&B performance was also the sole opening act for all four of Beyonce’s shows at Revel in Atlantic City for her “Back To Business” concerts last summer — and let’s not forget his feature role in her 2011 “Run the World” video. It’s pretty safe to say Luke James is on the major come-up, and he knows it too, saying:
“It is such an unimaginable honor to be sharing the light yet again with Beyoncé on her sold out Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. This is a blessing that I do not take lightly. Thank you Beyoncé.”
