Alicia Keys, John Legend announce Aus tour 2013
Alicia Keys will wind up her “Set The World on Fire” world tour in Australia in December.
The 14-time Grammy winner will be bringing her full bands for arena shows in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, and winery dates at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley and Rochford Wines in Victoria’s Yarra Valley (presented by A Day on the Green).
The shows will mark her first in Australia for five years, following a 2008 tour with Jordin Sparks and local support Lowrider. This time she’ll be bringing R&B crooner John Legend, who just released his fourth album Love In The Future, along for the ride.
Keys is touring her fifth studio album Girl On Fire, which features songwriting contributions from Nicki Minaj, Frank Ocean and Bruno Mars, as well as a cameo from guitarist Gary Clark Jr on ‘Fire We Make’. Clark has since described the collaboration as “one of the best studio experiences I’ve ever had”.
