Jill Scott is returning with her ‘Who is Jill Scott’ tour! The singer had kicked off the tour in 2020 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her debut album; however, it was cut short due to the pandemic. Scott will now celebrate the 23rd anniversary of the album with her tour named Who Is Jill Scott?: Words and Sounds, Vol. 1 in 2023.
“My band and I were so excited three years ago, but that damn COVID shut us down. Now, we outside! Come see me. Come feel again. Relive your favorite moments. Y’all ready to settle down and get with this?!? It’s a lot of love here,” Scott said, announcing the tour.

You’ll be the first to know about any tickets, new music and merch drops.”
After getting hugely positive feedback, she announced that she would be bringing her concert tour to a number of cities. Jill posted a video message on Instagram thanking her fans for the thunderous response and wrote, “Thank you so much. I’m going to do it. We are going back on the road with the 23rd anniversary “Who Is Jill Scott?” tour.”
