Neo-soul singer Maxwell has canceled his summer tour plans in order to give his injured vocal cords time to heal.
Soul singer Maxwell is the latest high-profile artist to postpone a significant number of dates that were planned for this summer. Maxwell has added dates with Erykah Badu and Melanie Fiona to his forthcoming spring/summer arena jaunt with Jill Scott. Maxwell and Jill Scott, who recently announced plans to join forces for a spring co-headlining tour, have revealed a detailed itinerary for the run. R&B singers Maxwell and Jill Scott will join forces this spring for a tour that will work its way through arenas in 20 US cities. With Grammy nominations announced in 109 categories, SoundSpike takes a look at live performance plans of the acts with multiple significant nominations. With four nods each, Beyonce, Maxwell and Keri Hilson lead the pack of nominees of the 2009 Soul Train Awards, which will be handed out next month. Maxwell has tacked a handful of shows onto the tail end of his forthcoming fall arena tour behind his fourth studio set, "BLACKsummers'night."
