It’s been a heck of a year so far for Alicia Keys, who took home five Grammy Awards in February for her album Songs in A Minor, which has sold more than 8 million copies worldwide. And, with a multitude of appearances and a full summer tour on her schedule, her star should shine bright well through the year.
Keys’ 35-date North American tour will begin in Milwaukee on July 2 at Summerfest and will run through August 30 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, at the American Music Festival. Keys will celebrate Independence Day in New Orleans at the Essence Festival; other acts for that bill have yet to be announced.
Other major stops include a four-date stay in the New York/New Jersey area (July 16 to 20) and two-day stints in Boston (July 10 and 11) and Los Angeles (July 30 and 31). Keys’ shows in Tempe on July 26 and Las Vegas on July 27 are rescheduled dates that were postponed March 6 and 8, respectively.
Before leaving for the tour, Keys will attend the 16th annual Soul Train Music Awards on March 20 in Los Angeles. Keys is up for four trophies and will definitely leave with the Sammy Davis Entertainer of the Year award.
