Today, global music icon and 15-time GRAMMY Award winner Alicia Keys announced ALICIA – THE WORLD TOUR, her highly anticipated return to the stage. Keys will bring her repertoire of worldwide hits to iconic venues across North America and Europe, including a stop at the legendary Radio City Music Hall in Key’s hometown of New York City. The celebrated singer/songwriter/producer will visit major cities on both continents including London, Paris, Berlin, At- lanta, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and more on the tour produced by Live Nation.
The tour announcement comes fresh off Keys’ exciting news to fans last night that her forthcoming sev- enth studio album, ALICIA, is set to be released worldwide on March 20, via RCA Records. Keys also gave fans a first-look at the album’s stunning artwork. Pre-sale for the album is set for Friday, January 24, in celebration of Alicia’s birthday on January 25.
Keys released the anthemic “Underdog,” the album’s new single, earlier this month to critical acclaim (“A be-jewelled slice of pop-soul with a gently euphoric feel” – Clash). The track became the most added song at US top 40 radio upon its release. Previously released singles include “Time Machine” and “Show Me Love,” which earned Keys a record-extending 11th number 1 on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs airplay chart.
American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets to the tour before the general public, begin- ning Wednesday, January 22nd at 10am local time until Sunday, January 26th at 10pm local time in the US. The AMEX pre-sale will run for 48 hours for dates in Europe. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, January 27th at 10am local time.
Keys will be returning to host the Grammy Awards on Sunday, January 26th, airing on CBS. She will release her book, More Myself, on March 31, via Flatiron Publishing.
