Global music icon and 15-time Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys brings the “Alicia - The World Tour” to Hard Rock Live. The tour announcement comes fresh off Keys’ exciting news to fans last night that her forthcoming seventh studio album “Alicia,” is set to be released worldwide on March 20, via RCA Records. Keys also gave fans a first-look at the album’s stunning artwork. Pre-sale for the album is set for Friday, Jan. 24, in celebration of Alicia’s birthday on Jan. 25. Each ticket purchased for the concert is part of a $7 album bundle.
Keys released the anthemic “Underdog,” the album’s new single, earlier this month to critical acclaim (“A be-jewelled slice of pop-soul with a gently euphoric feel” – Clash). The track became the most added song at U.S. top 40 radio upon its release. Previously released singles include “Time Machine” and “Show Me Love,” which earned Keys a record-extending 11th No. 1 on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs airplay chart.
In addition to new music, Keys will be bringing her classics - from “No One” to “If I Ain’t Got You” to “Girl on Fire” - to life in a special multi-media, artistic experience on the “Alicia - The World Tour” stage each night. A meditation on love and life, the show will be a true celebration, filled with the magnetic energy that only live music can create.
