US R&B/Soul superstar Maxwell added another London date at the Brixton O2 Academy on 13th November 2009 after his recently announced Hammersmith show on 31st October sold out. This tour was part of Maxwell’s first UK tour in 10 years.
“BLACKsummers’ night” was Maxwell’s fourth studio album and the first installment of a trilogy entitled “BLACK SUMMERS’NIGHT”. BLACK was a much darker but soulful compilation and 8 years since his last offering, SUMMERS’ leans more toward the Gospel side and NIGHT is more a cool collection of slow jams.
In 1996, the then 23-year old Brooklyn born phenomenon took the music world by storm with his debut, “Urban Hang Suite”. The critically acclaimed CD received a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album and went on to achieve double platinum status.
