Maxwell Plots Summer Tour

A series of dates to support blackSUMME’S'night.

April 11, 2016

Maxwell is plotting his return. In February, he shared details about the sequel to BLACKsummers'night. "It takes a long time before I have to realize that what used to be a rock is now a statue," he noted. "Sometimes people have to tap me on my shoulder and say, 'Look, dude, that’s a sculpture.'"


The first evidence of the sculpture surfaced this month in the form of "Lake By The Ocean." "Thx for makin this new single #LBTO special," he wrote on Instagram yesterday. "We made it the old school no autotune & over compressed mixes the 90s way.. No disrespect to those who do it how they do but we never buckle to trends we bow to timelessness."

blackSUMMERS'night is due out July 1, and today Maxwell announced tour dates to support his first full length since 2009. After a few spot days in April and June, the tour stars in earnest in July with a performance at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. After that, he'll play 22 more gigs, any of which are in the northeast and the south. Check out the full list below.
