After enjoying some remarkable success throughout the early 2000's, Akon seemed to disappear from the music scene after the release of his most recent studio album Freedom in 2008. It turns out the "Smack That" singer has been devoting much of his time to philanthropic projects over the past decade, culminating in the creation of his Konfidence Foundation which aims "to improve the quality of life for people in Africa and the United States."
Luckily for us, Akon has begun his return to the music scene and will be embarking on a summer tour to raise hype for the highly anticipated release of his fourth studio album Stadium. On June 28th Akon will be stopping through Halifax and playing a show at Pacifico for only $55 per ticket. Jam out to retro tunes like "Don't Matter" and "I Wanna Love You" with Akon this summer, and transport yourself back to the simpler times that were 2005. For more ticket information click here.
