In 1967 Stax records sent its top artists on a first-ever tour of Europe, which became known as the legendary Stax/Volt European Tour. Now, to recognise the 50th anniversary of the milestone event that catapulted Stax into the international limelight, the Stax Music Academy has been invited to follow in their footsteps with its first-ever tour of the UK, France and Ireland.

For this very special show the Stax Music Academy will celebrate the famous 1967 tour with music by Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Carla Thomas, Eddie Floyd, Arthur Conley, Booker T. & the MGs and more.

If you are a lifelong Stax Records fan but don’t know how the Soulsville Foundation is carrying the legacy of the label then this is the show for you! The Stax Music Academy is the only school in the world teaching students the art form of American soul music and the sound that was created in Memphis during the 1960s and 1970s becoming a worldwide phenomenon.

Because the majority of the Stax Music Academy students live at or below the poverty line and attend via scholarships provided by the Soulsville Foundation, Stax Music Academy trips represent the first opportunity to travel beyond Memphis for many of the young people involved. It has proven to have significant impact on the students’ desire to succeed in life, to boost their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to make them think more globally.

The Stax Music Academy 2017 European Tour is a SNAP! Summer Soul Tour and is sponsored in part by the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development.
