Alicia Keys announces new album, 2 Canadian dates on world tour

After keeping a relatively low profile over the last half decade, it seems Alicia Keys is making a massive comeback to the music industry.

Not only did the much-beloved musician announce her upcoming album Alicia on Monday through Twitter, she followed it up with a humorous world tour announcement the following day — in which she said if she bowled a strike, she would go on tour.

Well, Keys got her strike and almost immediately shared her plans for a spring/summer tour. The 38-year-old will hit the road for a 48-date tour, promoting her highly-anticipated seveth studio album.

After finishing the European leg of the trek, the 28 remaining concerts will take place in North America, starting with Jacksonville, Fla. on July 28, before concluding nearly two months later in Miami, Fla. on Sept. 22.

Along the way, the Girl On Fire singer will perform two shows in two Canadian cities: Toronto and Vancouver — her first since 2013.

Alicia is set to be released on March 20. It will be her first full release since 2016’s Here.

The lead single, Underdog, dropped earlier this month and is now available through all major streaming platforms.

Less than two weeks later, she will release her first-ever memoir, More Myself, on March 31.

Keys will also host the 62nd annual Grammy Awards this weekend — her second year in a row. You can catch the live broadcast this Sunday, Jan. 26 at 8 p.m. ET.

For those interested in buying tickets for Keys’ upcoming tour, an exclusive pre-sale for American Express cardholders is already underway.

All remaining tickets go on sale to the general public this Monday, Jan. 27 at 10 a.m. (local).
