Maxwell Announces The “blackSUMMERS’night” Tour Dates; Begins In June

Style: "BLUE03"

Now THIS is how you properly come back onto the music scene folks, start the promo trail right out the gate. Being that Maxwell was an artist that came to prominence in the 1990’s, the way in which he’s handling hits next project is kind of a throwback to how things worked back then.

Just last week, he dropped a surprise single on everyone entitled “Lake by the Ocean.” It’s the type of song that you would expect from the NY native, an organic sound with his soothing voice laid over-top. It’s Kind of hard to believe it’s been seven years since Maxwell released BLACKsummers’night and it’s explosive single, “Pretty Wings.”

Maxwell is gearing up for a Summer tour, that will support his next album, blackSUMMERS’night, that will be due in stores in July. The trek officially starts June 10th in Tacoma, Washington before making its way around the States. We have to say that some of these tour stops ARE rather random, in the fact that he’s skipping out on some major markets, most notably Atlanta and the DMV. Although this is disappointing to me, it’s not exactly shocking, because on his last tour he skipped some of these same areas as well. Maybe these are just a preliminary round of tour dates and he’ll continue to add more as he goes along.

With a new album looming, we are excited that the show will likely feature a lot of new material, along with some of our favorite classic Maxwell hits. There’s nothing better than new music, except for LIVE new music. Tickets for some of these shows go on sale as early as April 14th, and can be purchased via Ticketmaster and other outlets. Cop a gander at the full scheduled tour dates below.
