Keith Sweat

UrbanAZ presents a two-night music festival of some of today’s most proven R&B artists at 8 p.m. Friday, April 4, and Saturday, April 5, at Celebrity Theatre.

Friday’s concert stars one of the most soulful and successful R&B singers of all time, Keith Sweat. Revered as one of the key architect’s of the New Jack Swing phenomenon, the Harlem-born artist will headline a show that includes Mint Condition, My Name Is Joe and Avant.

Saturday’s lineup boasts major R&B players 112. Equally rooted in gospel, soul and hip-hop, the quartet was the first and most successful urban group to emerge from Sean “Puffy” Combs’ Bad Boy Records roster. Next, Carl Thomas, Case, J Holiday and Silk will also perform.

Single show tickets are $65-$85; two-day packages are $118 and $135. For information, call (602) 267-1600, ext. 1, or visit
