The Opening Act: Pink Sweat$
Alicia Keys made the first stop of her world tour in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the energy of her fans was at an all-time high.
The “Unthinkable” artist also brought out fellow R&B singer Pink Sweat$ as the opening act.

The Main Attraction: Alicia Keys Herself
After the opening act, the stage went black, and keyholes appeared on the screen, indicating that the main attraction was about to begin.
The As I Am songstress proceeded to strut out on stage in a black one-piece and sheer jacket with the attitude of Beyoncé and the softness of Janet Jackson.
Keys greeted the large audience and began the show with her song “You Don’t Know My Name.”
She also reenacted a scene from the video when she’s talking on the phone with the man from the diner.
Throughout the night, Keys engaged with fans and even took her spot on the lawn in a mixing booth and performed some of her newest music from her latest album Keys.
This album features a total of 12 tracks which are the same except for the arrangement.
Half of the album is the “original” arrangements with instrumentals and more old-school R&B elements. The album’s other half is the “unlocked” version with a more contemporary arrangement.
The “Fallin’” singer walked through the crowd to the main stage and graced the audience with her classic hits such as “Empire State Of Mind Pt. 1 & 2,” “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart,” and even “New Day.”
Further into the night, Keys decided to close the show with a ballad that many of her fans had been waiting for, “No One.”
Then, the “Teenage Love Affair” singer thanked the audience for their incredible energy before closing the show.
This marks the second world tour the “Girl On Fire” singer has been on since her 2013 “Set The World On Fire” tour.
