Alicia Keys is ready to set the road on “Fire.”
The multiplatinum singer is prepping a world tour in support of her latest album, “Girl On Fire,” which will launch on March 7 in Seattle, she announced on Thursday. The 24-city trek winds down April 18 in Chicago before Keys is expected to continue on the road in Europe. The singer will play at Staples Center in Los Angeles on March 12.
In an interview with The Times, Keys spoke candidly about the newfound confidence she showcases on "Girl On Fire," and said that despite being a decade into a career that boasts more than 35 million records sold and 14 Grammys, she had finally found herself on the album.
"I think its mostly just stepping into your womanhood," she said. "I knew I was going to call the album 'Girl on Fire' the minute that the song was done. It felt so right and accurate for what I've been going through and what I've been feeling.
