On June 4, Jackson will launch her headlining Together Again Summer 2024 Tour with Nelly as a special guest. The music icon will make 35 stops across North America, including San Fransisco, Denver, Chicago, Cleveland and Philadelphia.
While on tour, Jackson is filming her Family First documentary for A&E Networks. The doc will give fans an intimate look at life on the road on her Together Again Tour.
“I was touched by the love and support from the wonderful fans who enjoyed the documentary last year,” Jackson said. “I am excited to continue to share my story, and welcome fans into my life and the Together Again tour. Thank you for your never-ending support, and I hope you enjoy the next chapter.
Keys, who will be honored by the Gordon Parks Foundation in May, is gearing up for her Hell’s Kitchen musical to debut on Broadway on March 28 at Shubert Theatre. The official opening date is set for April 20.
In terms of music, Keys recently told WWD in an interview that she plans to start crafting new tunes for a future project.
“I’m going to start to work on the next body of work over these next couple of months,” Keys said to WWD. “And I’m excited to really just take all of the essences and energies and continue to explore where music takes me in its most truthful form.”
