Alicia Keys & John Legend to Perform in Auckland

Fourteen-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and global superstar, Alicia Keys, will bring her Set the World on Fire tour to Auckland on December 19, joined by special guest John Legend.  

Keys has been performing on a global stage since the international spotlight locked onto a 20-year-old Alicia Keys with the 2001 release of her debut album ‘Songs In A Minor’. Lead by the massive #1 hit single ‘Fallin’’, the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, going on to sell in excess of ten millions copies worldwide and garner five Grammy Awards. 

This success was further cemented by subsequent album releases ‘The Diary of Alicia Keys’, ‘As I Am’, ‘The Element of Freedom’; and hit singles ‘No One’, ‘If I Ain’t Got You’, ‘Superwoman’, ‘You Don’t Know My Name’, ‘Empire State of Mind’ and more.

Alicia Keys holds the record as the first female R&B artist to have three consecutive #1 albums debuts on the Billboard 200 album chart. 

The special guest will be the soulful and sensual, nine-time Grammy Award winner, John Legend and his band. 

Since releasing his 2004 debut album, the critically acclaimed Billboard #1 ‘Get Lifted’, which featured the hit single ‘Ordinary People’, singer-songwriter Legend has sold more than seven million albums worldwide, won three Soul Train Awards, the BET Award for Best New Artist and the special Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame, in addition to his multiple Grammy wins.

Tickets go on sale shows go on sale at 9am, Friday, October 4.
