Maxwell to Launch ’50 Intimate Nights Live’ North American Tour

R&B singer-songwriter Maxwell is preparing to hit the road. On Monday, the musician announced his upcoming “50 Intimate Nights Live” tour, which will make 50 stops in cities across North America starting Sept. 27 in Virginia and wrapping on Dec. 9 in the singer’s hometown of New York. Tickets go on sale Friday. The tour announcement promises that Maxwell will be premiering new material during the tour, presumably from his forthcoming album, “BlackSummer’sNIGHT,” the completion of a trilogy that began with 2009’s “BLACKsummers’Night” and continued with 2016’s “BlackSUMMERS’night.”

The tour announcement comes a month after Maxwell released his first single since 2016, “We Never Saw it Coming,” along with an accompanying short film music video titled “The Glass House.” Directed by Jay Z collaborators Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz, the video stars Maxwell and model-actress Yomi Abiola.

Also on the fall docket for the artist is the 20th anniversary re-release of his 1998 album “Embrya.” In addition to standard tour tickets, a limited amount of VIP packages — which may include a front row seat, a meet and greet, and special Maxwell merchandise — will be available for purchase starting July 25.
