Alicia Keys’ Diary Tour Dates Announced

Trek will cover 29 cities between February and April; John Legend will open all dates.

Alicia Keys has announced the itinerary for her Diary Tour, which begins later this month.

Due to begin on February 23 in Columbia, South Carolina, the 29-city theater tour will make stops across North America before concluding on April 24 in Newark, New Jersey (see “Alicia Keys Tour Announced” ).

However, before she hits the road, Keys will take the stage on Sunday at the Grammy Awards, and possibly pick up a few trophies to add to her collection (see “Kanye Scores 10 Grammy Nominations; Usher And Alicia Keys Land Eight” ). The songstress scored eight nods for her sophomore album, The Diary of Alicia Keys (see “Road To The Grammys: The Making Of The Diary Of Alicia Keys ).

After competing with fellow Grammy nominees Usher and Kanye West at the Grammys, Keys will again go head-to-head with the two for top honors at the NAACP Image Awards in March (see “Usher Scores Five Nominations For NAACP Image Awards” )

Fellow pianist/singer John Legend will open all dates for Keys on the tour — Legend will also appear at the Grammys, performing alongside Kanye West.
