ABC/Randy HolmesMaxwell has announced his A Night at the Symphony tour of symphony shows, starting in April.
The soul singer will take the stage performing with world-class orchestras, following his successful run of shows with the the National Symphony Orchestra. Stopping in Baltimore, Detroit, San Diego, Los Angeles and Atlanta, the symphonic tour will feature orchestral versions of some of Maxwell’s greatest hits, including “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder),” “Sumthin’ Sumthin,” “Til the Cops Come Knockin’,” “Pretty Wings,” and “Bad Habits.”
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think that what started when I was 16 years old would take me to such a prestigious experience,” Maxwell says in a statement. “It’s my greatest joy to announce that I will be playing songs from my catalog which I’m re-arranging for your symphonic pleasure.”
Maxwell redefined neo-soul music and R&B in the late 1990s with sensual interludes and shimmering love songs, starting with his double platinum debut, Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite.
He went on to release two more albums before taking an eight-year hiatus, returning with 2009’s BLACKsummersnight, which won a Grammy for Best R&B album. He released the the second installment of his musical trilogy blackSUMMERS’night in 2016, earning a Grammy for Best R&B Song for the lead single, “Lake by the Ocean.”
