Live 08 Wrap Up: South Africa, Amsterdam and Boston

Its been a minute since our last update so here is the latest on the road with Maxwell.

Maxwell and the band experienced an incredible out pour of love from the crowd at the Macufe Music Festival, it became pretty obvious that the people of South Africa  dig them some Maxwell. The feeling was mutual!

The Dutch truly represented at Heinekin Music Hall and welcomed Maxwell to Amsterdam for his only European stop on the Live 08 tour.  Although the show started later than expected, the capacity crowd of 5000 did not disappoint and can definitely look forward to Maxwell returning next year.

As Maxwell said in his twitter, Boston was no joke and really set the tone for the US leg of the tour. The Opera House was full of sexy people dressed to the 9’s  –  dont think we didnt see you all : )

    Returning next year to the Netherlands! That’s a promise! I’m definitely going to be there again! Actually hoping for a smaller venue… Paradiso for example – like in 1996?
    I do enjoy the Radio City Music Hall-concert. What a show! HOT, HOT, HOT!
    And can you give us a release-date for BLACK, please?
    Unfortunately I’ve never seen Marvin Gaye in concert, but I believe you have everything to surpass him!

    I hadn’t seen a live show in years and I throughly enjoyed myself @ the Opera House(Boston). I gave a small thought to following you around the country(ha, ha). I knew if I kept waiting you would return to us. Can hardly keep it together until the CD comes out. Hope to see you in NY @ the end of the tour. Stay STRONG, SEXY AND “SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL”.

    I cant wait to see you again. You were absolutely awesome in Boston. Have gone to many concerts this year that were lovely but you blew me away, as usual, and cant wait to see you again.

    You can check out some of the clips of the Boston Opera House performance on ‘my videos’ on my ‘Myspace’ url.

  32. Lady Joleta says:

    Just wanted to say -I loved the all ACCESS Special on BET. I wrote to you about it on the other myspace area but just wanted you to know that it was very touching, moving and that they accepted you so openly and that you yourself were so open with your emotions-It was like you were like President Barack Obama or something -yep I can say it loud and proud -President Barack Obama.

    I truly appreciate you M from the bottom, top, inside out of my heart

  34. Ramona says:

    Wow, it’s so nice to see the picture that was taken at the HMH in Amsterdam of my friends and I on your site! Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us! I was deeply honoured to have spoken to you. It truly ment so much to me, if it was only to have said “Thank you”. I know that you must be an amazing person, it can’t be differently: so warm, amazingly talented and yet so humble….You deserve all the love and respect the fans have for you! ..I shall cherish that moment and look forward seeing you perform again and really hope to be that fortunate to meet you once more!
    God bless you!
