Maxwell Releases More Details Behind ’50 Intimate Nights Live’ Tour

Music

Fans have a lot to look forward to at Maxwell’s upcoming tour. The R&B titan dropped a few hints on what’s to come in September, like possible reworked versions of his classic MTV Unplugged set.

Sharing Sunday (July 29), the “Gods” singer didn’t post the exact set from the 1997 MTV Unplugged show, but a performance of “Gotta Get Closer” from the Hard Rock Cafe from the same year. The stirring track was a clever cover of Nine Inch Nails’ 1994 single, “Closer.”

The tour, perfectly titled “50 Intimate Nights Live,” will celebrate the 20th anniversary of his sophomore album Embrya. The singer announced Monday (July 23) new music would be performed on the tour from the forthcoming album BlackSummer’sNIGHT. 

The album will finalize his trilogy that began in 2009 with BLACKsummers’Night (“Pretty Wings,” “Bad Habits”) and continued with 2016’s BlackSUMMERS’night (“Lake By The Ocean,” “Gods”).

The R&B crooner recently released the single “We Never Saw It Coming” in June paired with the short film, This Glass House. Variety notes the video was directed by Jay Z collaborators Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz (“Kill Jay-Z”).
