Allphones Arena is set to become the R ‘n B heart of New South Wales when Grammy Award winning artists, Alicia Keys and John Legend bring their full bands to the venue on their Set the World On Fire tour on Wednesday, 11 December, 2013.
Alicia Keys has been performing on a global stage since the international spotlight locked onto the then 20-year-old with the 2001 release of her debut album Songs In A Minor. Lead by the massive No. 1 hit single Fallin’, the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts going on to sell in excess of ten millions copies worldwide and garner five Grammy Awards.
Keys’ success was further cemented by subsequent album releases The Diary of Alicia Keys, As I Am, The Element of Freedom, Girl on Fire and the hit singles No One, If I Ain’t Got You, You Don’t Know My Name, Empire State of Mind and many more selling more than 1.7 million units in Australia and in excess of 30 million albums worldwide.
Special guest on the tour will be the soulful and sensual, nine-time Grammy Award winner, John Legend.
Since releasing his 2004 debut album, the critically acclaimed Billboard No. 1 Get Lifted, which featured the hit single Ordinary People, singer-songwriter Legend has sold more than 7 million albums worldwide, won 3 Soul Train Awards, the BET Award for Best New Artist and the special Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame, in addition to his multiple Grammy wins. Legend’s highly anticipated fourth studio album, Love In The Future, was released at the end of August and debuted in the Top 5 on the iTunes chart.
