R&B and soul legend Maxwell is bringing his “NIGHT: The Trilogy Show” tour to the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville this October.
The Crown Complex announced the show in a press release Monday, saying that the tour will come to the Coliseum on October 20, 2023. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 26 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster or CrownComplexNC.com.
“Maxwell has artfully managed to transfix music lovers for more than two decades, releasing five studio albums, all in his own time and all duly anointed as classics,” the release said about the hitmaker. “The soul singer redefined soul music in April of 1996 when he released his critically acclaimed debut on Columbia, ‘Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite.’ It earned Grammy nominations, double platinum status and RIAA gold for the single, “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder).” The platinum albums ‘Embrya’ (1998) and ‘Now’ (2001) followed.”
The tour kicks off in June with shows in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, and includes a run at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas in August. After the Fayetteville show in October, Maxwell heads up to Virginia for shows in Petersburg and Norfolk.
“Maxwell’s upcoming ‘blacksummers’NIGHT’ will cap off a journey he first embarked upon over a decade ago as one of the most-anticipated R&B events of 2023,” the singer’s website says.
The new album is the third part of the NIGHT series, after BLACKsummers’night was released in 2009, blackSUMMERS’night was released in 2016, and the new one, which was announced back in late 2021. The album has been in the works for years, and has been highly anticipated.
With the tour announcement – including the Maxwell stop in Fayetteville in October – hopefully the new album will finally drop.
