New R&B sensation Alicia Keys will join soul man Maxwell for a 25-date, 14-city tour that kicks off August 13 in New York.
In an unusual scheduling move, Keys and Maxwell will play seven shows in the Big Apple — at seven different venues. Washington, D.C., and Atlanta will also receive multiple dates.
The 20-year-old Keys is touring behind her Songs in A Minor, her first album, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart and will fall to #2, just 300 copies behind D12, next week.
Maxwell is set to release his third album — on which he returns to the erotic soul of his Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite (1996) — on August 21 (see “Maxwell’s Now Sound Recalls Debut LP” ).
