    SANTA MONICA, CA - September 1, 2010 - Soulful, sexy and sizzling hot, El DeBarge is about to teach new-schoolers all about R&B romancin' as he returns to the stage for his first tour in a dozen years. Opening for the iconic Mary J. Blige on her East Coast concert swing kicking off October 2 in Atlanta, DeBarge will both celebrate his early hits remembered by his long-time loyal fans and embrace a new generation with sensational new songs. Among the highlights of the tour will be shows October 11-12 at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Also appearing will be Jazmine Sullivan and Miguel.

    "After so many years away," said an excited DeBarge, "I can't wait to get back onstage, to feel my fans' love, and give love back to them. It's been a long time and I wondered if this day would ever come. Now that it's here, I am overjoyed."

    DeBarge will perform a pair of unforgettable smash hits from back in the day--the much-sampled hip-hop favorite "I Like It" and anthemic #1 R&B "All This Love"--plus "Second Chance" and "Close To You," fresh songs from his greatly-anticipated album Second Chance, to be released this Fall on Geffen Records. Second Chance, DeBarge's first album since 1994, is co-executive produced by Ron Fair and Pete Farmer.
