This week last year Philips Arena hosted Grammy Award winning superstar Maxwell for two nights - June 11 and 12. Special guest Erykah Badu joined Maxwell on the first night in Atlanta and Jill Scott joined for the second night.

Maxwell's 2010 Tour was in support of his fourth studio album, BLACKsummers'night. He released this album after taking several years off from the music industry. Maxwell came back from his break to receive six nominations for the 2010 Grammy Awards and won two of the nominations - "Best R&B Album" for BLACKsummers'night and "Best Male R&B Vocal Performance" for "Pretty Wings." "Pretty Wings" was nominated for the "Song of the Year" which was written by Maxwell under his publishing moniker Musze.
