Description

The FADER Label, the recording branch of The FADER, announced Saul Williams’ thirty-stop live tour in support of his recent release, "The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!”

Produced by Trent Reznor, the critically acclaimed record was hailed by Rolling Stone as “arresting and intelligent.” Jon Pareles of The New York Times praises the album,
“[NiggyTardust’s] sense of impending mayhem harks back to Public Enemy at its peak.”

"The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust! is the lovechild of Trent and me," says Williams. "The Niggytardust concept sets me free to do more on stage with costume, etc. than one might expect from a regular Saul Williams show. It allows me to put my theatre training to use. I've also thought long and hard about all the discussion surrounding racial epithets etc. and chose this title as a means of furthering the dialogue while also showing how creativity will outlive and outshine hatred of any kind."
