Frankie Beverly & Maze Beverly will in retire July of this year after more than 50 years of creating and performing his classic hits.This final jaunt across the country is with musical legends and contemporary superstars demonstrates why they are the perfect fit for the “Silky Soul Singer,” who was just recently bestowed with the Urban One Living Legend Honor by TV One-along with Dionne Warwick, Mary J. Blige, gospel music super producer Donald Lawrence and Chloe. Frankie Beverly will complete the tour with several major city stops. Beverly is embarking in this farewell tour before slowing down to enjoy life in his California Bay Area home. After decades of circling the globe many times with his arsenal of hits—“Back In Stride”, “Happy Feelin’s”, “We Are One”, “Southern Girl”, “Golden Time of Day”, “Joy and Pain” and of course the unofficial anthem for family reunions and get togethers-”Before I Let Go"—Frankie Beverly and Maze still receive glorious reviews from fans across the country. While the awards earned prior, such as the 2012 BET Lifetime Achievement Award and the 2006 Rhythmand Blues Foundation Pioneer Award for Individual Artist, aren’t the reason why Beverly performs, it is honorable that he’s been recognized as one of the greatest to ever take the stage. Now, Frankie Beverly is doing it ONE LAST TIME LIVE IN NEW ORLEANS, for the fans.

The O’Jays After more than 60 years electrifying people all over the world, the Mighty Legendary O’Jays, are set to embark on their final farewell tours well! Featuring Eddie Levert, Walter Williams, and Eric Nolan Grant as the trio join together on stage in their carefully curated ensembles to sing and dance the night away spanning over 60 years, the tour is cleverly named after their 1974 single, “Love Train.” The O’Jays’ coveted catalog includes 10 No.1 singles including “For The Love Of Money,” “Use Ta Be My Girl,” and “Family Reunion,” nine platinum albums, ten gold albums and 12 more iconic projects. Back in 2005, the O’Jays were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame before becoming the 2005 Lifetime Achievement Award recipients at the BET Awards and being inducted into the R&B Music Hall of Fame in 2013.
