Maxwell's Summers' Tour '17 to wrap at Valley View Casino Center

Neo-soul icon Maxwell will host a blackSUMMERS'night at Valley View Casino Center on June 23 to close out his highly-anticipated Summers' Tour '17. The Brooklyn-born super-talent is touring in support of his latest album blackSUMMERS’night, the second chapter of a trilogy and long-awaited followup to 2009’s Grammy-winning BLACKsummers’night. Helmed by longtime co-producer Hod David, the elegant project was led by the gorgeous “Lake By The Ocean." 

“I always want to create something that affects people emotionally and spiritually," Maxwell shared in a press release. "At the end of the day that’s what enables me to become secondary to the experience of the music.” As to how he knows he's got it right? “The music has to ‘bump,'" he explains. "I’m always asking – is the music bumping enough? And it really has to work in the car. If it’s not bumping in the car, it’s not coming out.”

Luckily, blackSUMMERS'night certifiably bumps; "Lake by the Ocean" won Best R&B Song at the 2017 Grammy Awards. Maxwell will cap off spring with an 18-date tour, kicking off May 23 in Nashville and wrapping June 23 at San Diego's Valley View Casino Center. He will be joined by rising R&B and jazz ace Ledisi on all dates and Common and Leela James on select dates.
