The Serenade Tour is Maxwell’s first major tour since the second leg of The Night Tour in fall 2022. Earlier that spring, he embarked on the first leg with special guests Anthony Hamilton and Joe. 

Since then, Maxwell has performed a Las Vegas residency, multiple symphony shows at Davies Symphony Hall in San Fransisco and The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. He also did a three-night run at Hollywood Bowl and hosted Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite Cruise, which featured additional performances by Musiq Soulchild, Ledisi, Gallant, Sabrina Claudio and more.

For fans wondering about Maxwell’s next album, the singer shared an update last July on X (formerly Twitter). “That_NIGHT music takes time; she dressing,” he wrote, confirming that blacksummers’NIGHT is still in the works. The long-awaited album will serve as the final installment of the trilogy, which began in 2009 with BLACKsummers’night.

As for Sullivan, who first opened for Maxwell 08 Tour, the Grammy winner headlined her Heaux Tales Tour in 2022. The tour was in support of her Grammy-winning album, Heaux Taleswhich was ranked No. 1 on Rated R&B’s Best R&B Albums of 2021 list. 

Her 2023 festival run included performances at Broccoli City Festival, AFROPUNK Brooklyn, Honeyland Festival, Something in the Water Festival and others.

October London wrapped up his headlining Rebirth of Marvin Tour earlier this month. The tour, which featured special guests The Shindellas and J. Brown, was in support of his debut album, The Rebirth of Marvin. The retro-soul album included London’s No. 1 hit “Back to Your Place.” 

The Rebirth of Marvin was among Rated R&B’s 25 Best R&B Albums of 2023 list. “Perhaps the most compelling thing about The Rebirth of Marvin is the recurring theme of putting love and compassion back at the core of R&B and soul,” wrote Anders Hare.
