THE SKINNY ON DANNY BLU'S U.S. SANCTUARY TOUR
Prior to the start of his 2014 North American Sanctuary Tour to promote his latest album, "saint", Danny Blu and his band The Factory have scheduled a warm up show at the famed New York City venue The Bitter End (147 Bleeker Street) for this Saturday, May 24th at 8 PM. Blu, also known as the rebel with a compassionate cause because of his crusade in the battle to fight teenage and cyber bulling, promises to make it a more than just memorable music night.
Using Facebook and Twitter he's urged his followers to send him a word that was used to taunt them while growing up which the performance artist have written on various parts of his body. He'll then strip to the skin at then end of his performance to demonstrate just how the words that are used to hurt can eventually become part of us. Words that have been contributed thus far range from: fatso, freak, and faggot to the unprintable (at least in most major news publications).
The 3 week long Sanctuary Tour already has 18 confirmed shows booked and with more expected to be added in the next several days. A film crew will be tagging along to capture his performances and of the stops along the way where Danny will be speaking at schools and community centers to share his knowledge and experience in dealing with bullies, as well as his message of acceptance and how kids can use art to find strength against adversity. This footage will be used to complete an upcoming documentary titled "Road to Change".
