Alicia Keys will have her own PBS special Friday night called Alicia Keys - Landmarks Live in Concert.
Keys kicks off a brand new PBS series through Great Performances called Landmarks Live in Concert. Hosted by Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the series follows famous singers going to their favorite locations and performing.
As PBS explains, "The series premieres with a native New Yorker from Hell's Kitchen, Grammy Award-winning artist, Alicia Keys. Her collaboration with Jay Z, 'Empire State of Mind,' instantly became the City's newest anthem. In this debut Landmarks Live special recorded over a one-year period, Alicia's love affair with New York continues as she performs in notable locations all around town including the City's world famous Circle Line harbor tour, and Harlem's Apollo Theater."
Keys will also be seen performing at the Unisphere.
"Working on Landmarks to create a new series which focuses on the artists' stories, not just the performances, is something that I'm truly excited about," host Smith said in a recent statement. "Landmarks is a real collaboration between a unique creative team and artists that will certainly change how music shows are approached."
