Maxwell Cancels U.S. Tour
Maxwell’s auspicious MaxwellTwoNight – M2N tour was unceremoniously canceled before it even started. Announced over the weekend, Maxwell’s tour ended after the singer experienced vocal swelling and hemorrhaging. A representative, in a statement, mentioned doctors advised the singer to rest and go through appropriate treatment, rather than do the six dates in three cities, where Maxwell would have performed his four albums in their entirely.
Maxwell, additionally, was disappointed to end the tour, which was scheduled to start in July. In a statement, he said: "I know this sucks but after many months of recording I've temporarily damaged my voice. I've had issues before during other tours but was able to power through."
Maxwell, however, will be back on the road later this year in support of upcoming album blackSUMMERS’night, scheduled for release later in 2012.
Not releasing an album for eight years, Maxwell made a return in 2009 with BLACKsummers’night. In April, the MaxwellTwoNight – M2N tour was announced. The singer was scheduled to perform in three cities – Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Newark, NJ – with two performances each. His full discography would have been performed in each location. The singer would have run through Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite (1996), Embrya (1998), and would have done Now (2001) and BLACKsummers'night (2009) on the second day. The tour was expected to begin on July 20 and end August 4.
