R&B Superstar Keith Sweat Hits Australian Roads This July To August

Sweat in excitement as R&B icon and New Jack Swing pioneer Keith Sweat tours Australia this July and August. Bringing songs from his newly-released album 'Dress To Impress' as well as collection of classics, the Harlem-born singer will be playing Melbourne's Palais Theatre, Crown Theatre in Perth, The Star Gold Coast and The Star Event Centre in Sydney.

"He so effortlessly recaptures the magic that made him one of R&B’s biggest stars." - Soul In Stereo
"Respectable and sound, dress to impress is tried-and-true." - The Musical Hype
"Keith Sweat still has the power to make you sweat when he puts on a show." - Soul Train

Sweat performed throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut with his band Jamilah before going solo in 1984. His debut album 'Make It Last Forever' sold more than three million copies and featured hit single 'I Want Her' which catapulted to number one on the R&B charts and number five on the pop charts.

His album 'I'll Give All My Love To You' in 1990 followed shortly thereafter, reaching number three on the Billboard 200 chart. It spawned memorable 90's R&B singles 'Make You Sweat' and 'I Give All My Love To You', both singles reaching number one on the R&B charts.

In addition to being an accomplished and successful R&B star, Keith Sweat is considered a purveyor of New Jack Swing, which is a combination of hip-hop, contemporary soul, high tech funk and in some cases hip-hop elements. Sweat’s debut album 'Make It Last Forever' was extremely influential in developing the sound with some critics even considering it to be what kicked off the genre.

Throwing it back to basics, 'Dress To Impress' pays tribute to Sweat’s original sound. Driven by his classic laid back R&B style, it features singles such as 'Good Love' and 'Just The 2 Of Us', showcasing Sweat's R&B talent.

Sweat will be joined by Australian R&B group CDB whose cover version of Earth, Wind & Fire's 'Let’s Groove' peaked at number two on the ARIA singles chart. Bouncing back to the scene with their new album 'Tailored For Now – Eleven R&B Super James', their music is about creating nostalgia while transitioning into a new era.

With over 25 million album sales in the US alone and several of his singles peaking at number one, there's no questioning why Sweat is an R&B icon. Act quick to get your tickets and prepare to witness some of R&B's most memorable songs only from Keith Sweat!
