Grammy Award-winning superstars Maxwell and Philadelphia ‘s own Jill Scott will perform live together at the Wachovia Center on Saturday, June 19. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, March 12 at 10 AM exclusively through ComcastTIX, on line at, by phone at 1-800-298-4200 or in person at the Wachovia Center box office.


Singer and songwriter Maxwell is catapulting of his two recent Grammy Awards and his number one, platinum “BLACKsummers’night” ( Columbia ), which dominated year-end critics’ lists.


Grammy Award-winning singer Scott will be performing hits spanning her 10-year career starting from her double platinum Grammy-nominated debut album “Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol.1” through her upcoming album “The Light Of The Sun” to be released in the summer of 2010.


Critics lauded Maxwell’s energetic, crowd-pleasing performances last fall, including a sold-out performance at the Spectrum as part of the arena’s Final Farewell Concert Series. The Chicago Tribune commented, “He worked his band like Cab Calloway or James Brown, the horns slicing and dicing with Ginsu-knife precision, a Hammond organ taking us to church, the drums peppering everything with syncopated beats. The show had style…Maxwell proved more than capable of taking the abundant personality and intimacy of his theater shows to a bigger stage,”


The New York Post wrote that “Maxwell became the quintessential soul brother. The singer stepped into a lone spotlight in the dark Garden, half singing, half preaching as if he were possessed by the spirit of Sam Cooke.”


The Atlanta Journal Constitution said “Within mere seconds, Maxwell was turning up the heat — running up and down stairs on the set, sliding across the floor.”


Triple threat singer, actress and designer Scott has been taking Hollywood by storm and has a busy 2010 ahead of her. Recently seen as lead role in HBO’s critically acclaimed mini series “The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency,” directed by the late Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella and Lifetime Movie Network’s Sins Of the Mother, she is also prepping two movies, a cartoon series, a new bra for her Ashley Stewart intimate apparel line and new album “The Light Of The Sun.”
