The Phileo Tour, which features headliner Sebastian Mikael, has been announced. “This is my first headline tour, I can’t wAit to create new memories w/y’all,” Mikael said in the announcement caption.
The tour’s eight dates begin on March 15 at New York City’s storied S.O.B’s and finish on March 26 at Nectar Lounge in Seattle, Washington. Mikael’s tour schedule also includes stops in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Los Angeles, and other significant cities.
Tickets for the Mikael’s Phileo Tour are now available (Jan. 20). As of publishing, no supporting act has been made known. His next tour follows his similarly named EP from 2022. Following the release of his I C U U C ME (Pt. I and II) projects on Slip-N-Slide Records/Atlantic Records, Phileo was independently released.
“I choose to go independent because I feel like it’s a better fit for the music. I’ve never had full ownership before — this is my first time, so that’s exciting,” Mikael mentioned. After the Greek word that characterizes brotherly love, Mikael gave his EP the name Phileo.
“I wanted to talk about having love for your people, sisterly or brotherly love, loving your peers, and loving the people around you. It’s mentioned in the Bible when Jesus and his disciples built this bond in brotherhood,” he explained.
He added, “I wanted to include the different aspects of love that feel more like the fundamentals and core of who we are and in a deeper sense. I wanted to kind of take love out of it — the romantic aspect — and talk about the misconceptions of love.”
The focal song for the EP, “Overgold,” was released in September, and two months later, its official video.
