Maxwell brings his tour to St. Petersburg with a performance Sept. 1 at The Mahaffey.

ST. PETERSBURG – Maxwell will perform Friday, Sept. 1, 8 p.m., at The Mahaffey, 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg.

After releasing four studio albums, all praised as classics, the R&B/soul pioneer Maxwell is on tour showcasing his fifth album, “BlackSUMMERS’night.” The Grammy award-winner has been performing to sell-out crowds for more than 20 years. His signature single “Pretty Wings” is part of a sensual, path-finding trilogy.

The album landed on most critics’ “Year’s Best” lists and snared two Grammys, with Rolling Stone praising it as an “album about love, not sex, for grown-ups who know the difference.” Fans will enjoy iconic singles such as “’Til The Cops Come Knockin’” and “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder),” among others, exploring love and heartbreak as only Maxwell can.

Tickets start at $35. Call 727-893-7832 or visit thema­haffe­
