Alicia Keys, Maxwell To Hit Road Together

R&B sensation, soul man's 25-date, 14-city tour kicks off August 13.

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 [article id="1444427"]"Maxwell's Now Sound Recalls Debut LP"[/article]).
