Birmingham: Sweet Home……

For those of you who are not from Birmingham, Maxwell’s last two shows in 1999 & 2001 were canceled. This made the show on November 10th   a little bit more than special. If you had a chance to listen to his interview with Chris Coleman on 98.7 FM, he mentioned he’d do something special for Birmingham and he also gave props to his bass player – Birmingham’s own Sean Michael Ray, who was recently interviewed here. .

With Obama’s win still fresh, here are some heroes from Alabama who have helped pave the way for all Americans.

    I had no idea why Maxwell apologized to the crowd. Thanks. I traveled there from Macon, GA to see the show. I loved it. I hadn’t gone to any show in years. I feel reborn. Thanks Maxwell and the band. 🙂

    Love how you always pay respect to the ones who paved the way..
    The concept of the album sounds so dope,first time hearing that the ‘female kinda represents the audience’

    The show in B-ham was … I can’t even think of the right words to describe. I was entranced the whole time. I have been a fan since 1996 but this was my first time seeing you live due to one reason or another. This time I drove in from Nashville, TN to see the show and it was well worth every minute spent in the car! I especially loved the part where he pointed at me during Pretty Wings 🙂 I am a Maxwell fan renewed! Thank you! Can’t wait to do it again!
