D’ANGELO

Next Sunday: After interminable delays and many false alarms, revered but reclusive soul man D’Angelo finally dropped his long overdue follow-up to 2000’s “Voodoo” without notice in December 2014. “Black Messiah” is a surreal, adventurous, organic mix of George Clinton, Sly Stone, Prince and Bad Brains — with politics mixed in. With its impact being felt this year, “Black Messiah” is likely to make many of the best-of lists at the end of 2015. Now D’Angelo has returned to the road on his Second Coming Tour. This is not like his jam with Questlove at First Avenue in 2013. This is the real deal, with a 10-piece band, the Vanguard, that includes ex-Time guitarist Jesse Johnson, the Who’s bassist Pino Palladino and P-Funk singer Kendra Foster. Expect to hear most of the material off “Black Messiah,” a taste of “Voodoo” and his 1995 breakthrough hit “Brown Sugar.” (9 p.m. Sept. 6, sold out, First Avenue, 701 1st Av. N., Mpls.)
