The 15-time Grammy winner has announced the openers for her KEYS TO THE SUMMER TOUR. Cameroonian-American Afrobeats singer Libianca and Nigerian artist Simi will directly support the international superstar.

The run will commence on June 28, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and wrap up in early August. The “Girl on Fire” singer is scheduled to hit massive markets throughout North America, such as Chicago, Los Angeles, Austin, New York, and many more. 

Libianca, known for hit songs “People,” “Everything I Wanted,” and “WOMAN,” will appear on select dates. The powerhouse vocalist will start her trek on June 28 and will take her final bow on July 21 in St. Louis, Missouri. Simi will step in starting July 23 in New Orleans, Louisiana, and will finish the tour with Keys. 

The hitmaker spoke highly about the tour and declared that the musical celebration would make ticket-holders feel a unique sensation they can’t receive at any other show.

“The KEYS TO THE SUMMER TOUR is going to be completely unforgettable and unmissable! I describe it as a celebration of freedom and self-liberation!” says Keys in a press release. “It’s going to be colorful, magical and will light up your body, soul, and all of your senses!
