WAR RETURNS TO THE DIAMOND CENTER !
Since first forming in the late 1960s, WAR has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. Lonnie Jordan, original lead singer, keyboardist, and musical director has always been the voice of WAR and is one of the most versatile and musically talented men of the 20th century. His powerful voice presides over WAR’s political, historical and downright fun songbook. WAR’s music is a timeless thread in the quilt of American pop culture.
The success of WAR is reflected in their numerous honors—17 gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards. These include: triple platinum The World Is A Ghetto, multi-platinum Why Can’t We Be Friends? All Day Music, and Deliver the World, and gold singles from their Quad platinum Greatest Hits Album. Also, “Summer,” their single from WAR’s Greatest Hits Live album sold gold and set a new record as the first single from any greatest hits package to become a hit. This year, fronted by co-founding member Lonnie Jordan, the group will celebrate 50 years of 1973’s No. 1 Billboard top-selling album, The World is a Ghetto, with a 50-date summer tour, remixes, new releases and more.
