BURBANK, Calif., Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Will Smith is planning a "proper" concert tour with longtime musical collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff, he confirmed.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the father of three said Thursday he was never able to go on tour during the 1980s and '90s when both his acting and music careers were taking off. Following the release of "Fiesta," the Concussion actor believes it's time to properly promote his music.
"We never actually had a chance to go out and do a full tour," he told host DeGeneres. "So, we released our first record in 1986. Girls Ain't Nothin' But Trouble was our first record, but by 1990 I was already on The Fresh Prince. So, in that time...we were getting started, and I never actually had a chance to go on tour, so I really want to get out there and do it for real."
Smith first mentioned his intentions to go on a world tour in early October during an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio. Smith said he was "pretty certain" a tour with Jazzy Jeff will happen soon.
Despite his "stash" of recorded music and drive to return to the industry, Smith at the time confessed he was "terrified" with going on tour, but his children give him the confidence to do so.
