Maxwell: The Night Tour
With Anthony Hamilton and Joe
Preparing to deliver one of the most-anticipated R&B events of next year, three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum artist Maxwell announces his new full-length album, blacksummers’NIGHT, out Spring 2022. It notably marks his first release under a newly minted deal with BMG and closes out the trilogy he began with the #1 GRAMMY® Award-winning epic, BLACKsummers’night, in 2009.
Maxwell says: “From announcing a new partnership with BMG for my label Musze to receiving the Legend Award at the upcoming 2021 Soul Train Awards, I couldn’t be more excited to share this new single with loved ones offering a glimpse into NIGHT…”
Additionally, Maxwell will support his upcoming album with the NIGHT 2022 Tour across North America in partnership with the Black Promoters Collective – the preeminent coalition of African American independent promoters. The 25-date run kicks off in Dallas, TX at Texas Trust CU Theater, visits legendary arenas such as Barclays Center in Brooklyn and The Forum in Los Angeles, and concludes at FTX Arena in Miami, FL on May 8. Anthony Hamilton and Joe have been confirmed as support.
Tickets go on-sale to the public on November 29.
Maxwell has artfully managed to transfix music lovers for more than two decades, releasing five studio albums, all in his own time and all duly anointed as classics. The soul singer redefined soul music in April of 1996 when he released his critically acclaimed debut on Columbia, 'Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite.' It earned Grammy nominations, double platinum status and RIAA gold for the single, "Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder)." The platinum albums 'Embrya' (1998) and 'Now' (2001) followed. After eight years, 2009's 'BLACKsummers'night' debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and won two Grammys, including Best R&B Album. To date, Maxwell has achieved 4 platinum album certifications from the RIAA. His last album ‘blackSUMMERS’night,’ the second installment of his musical trilogy, earned Maxwell his third-Grammy (Best R&B Song for “Lake By The Ocean”) an NAACP Image Award (Outstanding Male Artist), and a Soul Train Award (Best R&B/Soul Male Artist).
