Alicia Keys is gearing up for a tour set to start in Canada next week.
The singer will kick off her Freedom Tour at ScotiaBank Place in Ottawa, Ontario, on February 26. It will head stateside on March 3 with a show at Allstate Arena in Chicago. From there it will hit stops in Detroit, Atlantic City, Baltimore and Las Vegas.
Between shooting a video in Brazil and a spread for Vogue, Alicia has barely had time to catch her breath, but she’s already anxious to head out on tour.
"I’m really excited about it. I can’t believe that it’s that soon,” she told MTV News. “It’s going to be amazing and the concept of the tour is really amazing, and putting it together, I feel so excited. So I hope you make it."
Alicia will be bringing along Robin Thicke and Melanie Fiona to warm up the crowd. For a complete list of tour dates, and information on where to buy tickets for the show, visit Alicia’s official Web site.
