Alicia Keys announces new album, a new tour and will perform in Manchester this summer

SAM | 4th February 2020

Global music icon and 15-time Grammy-Award winner Alicia Keys has announced ALICIA – The World Tour, her highly anticipated return to the stage.


Keys will bring her repertoire of hits to iconic venues across the globe, performing at Manchester Arena on 7th June along with other dates across the country for the UK part of her worldwide tour.


The announcement comes fresh off Keys’ exciting news that her forthcoming seventh studio album ALICIA is set to be released worldwide on March 20. Keys also gave fans a first-look at the album’s stunning artwork.


Keys released the anthemic “Underdog,” the album’s new single, earlier this month to critical acclaim (“A be-jeweled slice of pop-soul with a gently euphoric feel” – Clash).  The track became the most added song at US top 40 radio upon its release. Previously released singles include “Time Machine” and “Show Me Love,” which earned Keys a record-extending 11th number 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.
