MAXWELL IN CHICAGO
I was invited to attend the Maxwell concert at the United Center this week. I was not a major fan of Maxwell but did enjoy his music in the 90's.
After knocking out his third straight million-selling album in 2001, Maxwell took most of the decade off – the equivalent of a lifetime in the fickle world of pop culture.
But the years have done nothing to diminish his appeal. If anything, he’s bigger than ever. At the height of his success in the ‘90s, he was touring mid-size auditoriums, but on Thursday he headlined in front of a near-capacity crowd at the United Center.
By the end of this concert I was a big Maxwell fan! He was great singing his new songs and old songs - especially my song "Til the Cops come running' - Maxwell had the women screaming - if any man who was there did not get lucky that night - there was something wrong with him :) Maxwell heated it up!
