Alicia Keys Announces Her Set the World on Fire Tour Dates

AliciaKeys.comBack in November, Alicia Keys revealed that she'd be promoting her Girl on Fire album with a big spring tour, featuring special guest Miguel.  Now, there are details about the North American trek, which Alicia has dubbed the Set the World on Fire tour.  She announced Thursday that she'll kick things off March 7, visiting 24 cities, including Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, Chicago and New York, before she wraps things up April 18.

"I can feel the energy of this upcoming year building and I couldn't be more excited to go on tour with the new album and I'm thrilled to have the insanely talented Miguel join me," Alicia says in a statement.  "I can't wait to discover how the new and familiar faces I see on tour embrace the music and the journey I've taken."

Miguel says the tour is "definitely going to be on fire!"  In a statement, he adds that, "I love Alicia because whether it's 5 or 500,000 people she's performing for, she exudes this hypnotic honesty and a transparent artistry.  I think that's what this tour will be remembered for the most."
