Maxwell and Mary J. Blige seem like such a natural fit, it's a wonder this joint tour hasn't happened before. In fact, the R&B icons have been thinking of playing together for some time, and now they've finally sealed the deal. King Maxwell is supporting his most recent record, the reliably cool blackSUMMERS'night, while Queen Mary J. boasts one of modern music's most influential back catalogues.
Emerging in the 1990s, the Brooklyn-born Maxwell is credited is being a major force in shaping the neo-soul genre, which also included artists like D'Angelo and Eyrkah Badu. He's been called the 'Marvin Gaye of the 90s' by the press, expertly interweving modern beats and production with an old school soulful emotion. The iconic Mary J. Blige is the recipient of nine Grammy Awards, and has produced innumerable classics over the course of her illustrious career, including 'Family Affair', 'My Life' and 'Be Without You'.
