The world tour of Fela! opened in the United Kingdom July 20 at Sadler's Wells Theatre. In celebration of opening night in the West End, the cast was welcomed by the Prince of Wales at a reception held at St. James Palace. When the cast of Fela! provided the music for the party, a dance-off broke out between the cast and Prince Charles, himself.

Fela!, according to press notes, "tells the true story of the legendary Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, whose soulful Afrobeat rhythms ignited a generation. Motivated by his mother, a civil rights champion, he defied a corrupt and oppressive military government and devoted his life and music to the struggle for freedom and human dignity. Fela! is a triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, featuring Fela Kuti’s captivating music."

Tour performances include July 20-Aug. 28 in United Kingdom at Sadler's Wells Theatre; Sept. 13-Oct. 9 in Washington, DC, at Sidney Harman Hall; Oct. 11-16 in Atlanta, GA, at the Atlanta Civic Center; Oct. 20-23 in New Haven, CT, at the Shubert Theater; Feb. 14-March 4 in Detroit, MI, at the Detroit Music Hall; March 20-25 in Philadelphia, PA, at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts; and April 25-June 3 in Los Angeles, CA, at the Ahmanson Theatre.
