Keith Sweat Goes to New Zealand for the First Time this July

R&B sensation and New Jack Swing pioneer Keith Sweat will be performing in Wellington and Auckland this August in support of his latest album 'Dress To Impress'.

Keith Sweat will play his heart-melting tracks such as 'Good Love' and 'Just The 2 Of Us' which features his unique and laid back style. Throwing it back to basics, Sweat will also play an array of old classics capturing how truly talented Sweat is.

Sweat performed throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut with his band Jamilah before breaking out on his own in 1984. The release of his debut album Make It Last Forever sold over three million copies and featured hit single 'I Want Her' which catapulted to number one on the R&B charts and number five on the pop charts. Sweat's debut album was extremely influential in developing the sound with some critics even considering it to be what kicked off the genre.

Followed shortly thereafter is 'I’ll Give All My Love To You' in 1990, which reached number three on the Billboard 200 chart. It featured memorable 90’s R&B singles 'Make You Sweat' and 'I Give All My Love To You'.

"Keith Sweat still has the power to 'make you sweat' when he puts on a show." - Soul Train

In addition to being an accomplished and successful R&B star, Sweat is considered a sound that fuses together hip-hop, contemporary soul and high-tech funk. Having sold over 25 million albums in the US alone and several of his singles reaching number one, Sweat is amongst only a handful of R&B artists to have been rewarded such longevity and success in their career.
