PHILADELPHIA, June 5 (UPI) -- Jill Scott and Maxwell say they're teaming up for an R&B summer tour that will take them through Scott's hometown of Philadelphia.
Maxwell had a big comeback last year that led to a hit CD, Grammy awards and a popular arena tour. Grammy winner Scott plans to release her "Light of the Sun" hip-hop album later this year and is about 40 percent done with another album, she told the St. Louis-Dispatch.
Their summer tour is "a great night for music lovers. And everyone who wants to shake a little tail feather or feel romantic, whatever the case may be," said Scott, who also acts on television and in movies.
Scott plans to limit her costume changes so she can pack in a lot of songs before transitioning to Maxwell's set, she said, calling the show, "All this estrogen, and then all that testosterone."
Maxwell and Scott perform June 19 at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia. The tour also stops in Houston, Atlanta, Miami and New York.
