Maxwell's ‘blackSUMMERS’night’ was released on July 1 (Columbia Records), and is being talked of as one of the most critically acclaimed albums of 2016. This is the two-time Grammy winner's first European tour in seven years.
Maxwell says, “Mary is the epitome of soul. She embodies all that is woman and speaks for the everyday struggle and triumphs of all women. I can’t wait to get on the road with her."

Ms Blige says, "Maxwell's music is amazingly soulful and calm with a colourful tone that speaks to the hearts of women. His music makes them feel loved and I'm excited to get on the road with him."
