Maxwell comes to South Africa!

3 October 2013

Following last month’s announcement that two-time GRAMMY® Award winning soul superstar, Maxwell will be performing in Cape Town and Johannesburg this December as part of his SA Tour, the show’s local promoters, Canoc Productions have been inundated with requests for this mega star to perform in Durban.

Style: "BLUE03"

To cater for the overwhelming demand by fans across KZN, Castle Milk Stout and Canoc Productions in association with Mzansi Magic and Gagasi 99.5 FM are pleased to announce a Durban concert has been added to Maxwell’s SA Tour. This chart-topping singer, songwriter, musician and producer will be on stage for one night only at the Wavehouse on Monday, 9 December 2013 commencing at 19h30. Tickets are on sale at Computicket.

“We are delighted with the public response to the Maxwell SA Tour announcement. The Durban addition to the tour simply means that we will have another opportunity to give South Africans another rich moment to savour,” says Vilashni Vandayar, Marketing Manager, Castle Milk Stout.

Maxwell fans are in for a musical treat when this sensational ambassador of soul sings a mix of his earlier classic songs and recent numbers from the first of the BLACKsummers’night trilogy albums. Maxwell is ready to give old fans and new ones a sensory experience that he never fails to deliver.

“We as Mzansi Magic are thrilled to be the media partner to Maxwell’s South African Tour. The multitalented R&B and Neo Soul megastar is a firm favourite with our audiences and partnering with this event is a natural fit,” says Victor Koaho, Mzansi Magic’s Head of Marketing.

Celebrated for his show-stopping performances, Maxwell is a crowd-pleasing entertainer whose remarkable talents are recognized with a host of international music awards and nominations. He received twelve GRAMMY® Award nominations and two awards at the 2010 “GRAMMY ‘s” for Best R&B Album for “BLACKsummer’sNight” and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for “Pretty Wings” also from BLACKsummers’Night. During the same year, Maxwell received an Image Award for the most Outstanding Male Artist. Throughout his highly successful singing career of more than 20 years, Maxwell has been nominated an incredible twenty-five times for various awards including the BET Awards, the American Music Awards and the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards. He has received four TRAIN awards in various R&B/Soul categories in 1996, 2000, 2009 and the 1999 Billboard Music Award for R&B Single of the Year: “Fortunate”. This mega entertainer has also performed at the GRAMMY® Awards and the BET Awards and he has appeared on major television network shows including The Jay Leno Show, the Late Show with David Letterman Show, Good Morning America and CNN Heroes.

Maxwell’s music spans the genres of R&B, funk, neo soul and jazz. He released his debut album Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite which went on to sell over 2 million copies, earning him double platinum status and a GRAMMY nomination. His second album “Embrya” followed and a live album MTV Unplugged was next. A year later Maxwell released “Fortunate”, a single written by R. Kelly and featured on the soundtrack for the 1999 film, Life. Maxwell’s third album “Now” reached No.1 on both the Billboard 200 album chart and Billboard’s R&B album chart. After taking an extended hiatus from the music industry, Maxwell returned with BLACKsummers’Night which became his second album to reach number 1 on the Billboard Albums Top 200 chart. The second album in the trilogy SUMMERS will be out next year.
