Well, it looks like things are in fact gonna work out. Mayer Hawthorne is bringing his Rare Changes tour to El Club this fall.

The announcement comes only two weeks after El Club dropped an insanely packed reopening week lineup.

The Grammy-nominated Ann Arbor native released the Rare Changes LP, a compilation of his 2020 singles in one project, last December. The retro-soul crooner first made waves when he released his debut single “Just Ain't Gonna Work Out” in 2008. Since then, he’s accumulated over 100 million plays across streaming platforms, collaborated with Jake Uno to form the duo Tuxedo, and most recently produced the track “Options” on Doja Cat’s latest album Planet Her.

Tickets for the November show go on sale Wednesday, July 21 at 10 a.m. You can register for ticket sale reminders here.
