After much fanfare, reclusive singer D'Angelo has finally made his return to the stage, performing his first show in over a decade, in Stockholm, Sweden Thursday night (Jan. 26).

Rocking an all-black tank top and shawl ensemble, D'Angelo looked to be in good spirits as he engaged the crowd during the first stop of his "intimate" European comeback tour, opening with a raucous rendition of 'Chicken Grease' from his last album, 'Voodoo,' which was released back in 2000.
Despite the various legal and personal battles the troubled crooner has fought over the past decade, he appeared to be in classic form last night, rocking a selection of hits from his two albums, and even some new, unreleased songs from his long-delayed follow-up, 'James River,' which he is said to be close to completing, according to longtime collaborator Questlove of The Roots.
The D-Tour continues through Feb. 3, with dates in Copenhagen, Paris, Amsterdam, London, Oslo, Zurich and Hamburg.
