Maxwell to Play Modesto's Gallo Center, 6/24
Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, record producer and multi-instrumentalist Maxwell is bringing his 35-city "Summer Soulstice" U.S. tour to the Gallo Center for the Arts at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, June 24. His appearance at the Gallo Center is one of only two stops on the Northern California leg of the tour.
Tickets for the concert range in price from $60 to $119, and may be purchased online at www.galloarts.org, by calling (209) 338-2100 or from the Gallo Center ticket office at 1000 I Street in downtown Modesto.
Maxwell's music spans R&B, funk and soul, but he is best known as one of the founders, along with D'Angelo and Erykah Badu, of the sub-genre 'neo-soul' movement of the latter 1990s. After a successful debut album "Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite," he released "Embrya," "Now" and a live album, "MTV Unplugged." Following an eight-year hiatus that began in 2002, he returned with the platinum-selling "BLACKsummers'night," the first of a trilogy. Over the course of his career, Maxwell has received 12 Grammy Award nominations, with two wins.
