It’s a new era for Maxwell. After releasing his new bedroom jam “Off” on Tuesday, the legendary singer has announced his NIGHT 2022 Tour, in partnership with the Black Promoters Collective. He will be joined by his peers Anthony Hamilton and Joe.
“Maxwell is one of the most respected artists in the industry,” says Gary Guidry, CEO of Black Promoters Collective.
“His body of work and showmanship are second to none. We believe he has a true connection to the culture. We are happy to partner with him on the NIGHT 2022 Tour and look forward to growing this relationship for years to come.”
The 25-date trek will kick off in Dallas, Texas, on March 2, 2022.
From there, the R&B gents will play in major cities, including New Orleans, Atlanta, Memphis, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.
The tour will conclude on May 8, 2022, in Miami, Florida.

Pre-sale starts on Thursday, Dec. 2 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, Dec. 3.
Maxwell will be supporting his upcoming album, blacksummers’NIGHT, which is set to release in spring 2022 on his new label Musze/BMG.
Speaking on his new partnership with BMG, Maxwell said, “I’m looking forward to this next chapter and new partnership with my label Musze/BMG and all that we can accomplish together. The sky is the limit!”
As for Hamilton, he will perform material from his latest LP, Love Is the New Black.

In an interview with Rated R&B, Hamilton shared his experience reuniting with hitmaker Jermaine Dupri.
“I’ve always felt like I had what I needed in terms of being solid in what I felt was my true voice because I earned it,” he said.
“Being paired up with someone who’s done it so much and so big, it gives us an extra push, an extra layer of confidence and ammunition, like, ‘Go in and do your ish, hard and unapologetic.’ So in there, it’s just a safe place to be [yourself].”
Joe, who has been relatively quiet, will most likely dig into his expansive catalog. At this time, there is no word if he plans to share new material following his retirement. He released his final album, My Name Is Joe Thomas, in 2016.
Speaking on his album, Joe said, “Many artists at times say that their current project is their best piece of work to date, however I can honestly say that this truly is not only my best, but one of my favorite discs ever.”
He added, “I put my heart and soul into the creation and performance of this record and I can only hope that I am giving fans what they wish for in a Joe record.”
