Frankie Beverly, a renowned figure in soul music alongside his ensemble Maze, has announced the "I Wanna Thank You Farewell Tour," marking the culmination of a five-decade career that significantly impacted the genre.

The tour commences on March 22nd, 2024, at Atlanta's State Farm Arena, a city with deep roots in the band's history. Beverly's musical journey began earlier, with The Butlers and Raw Soul in the 1970s. A pivotal move to San Francisco in 1971, encouraged by the legendary Marvin Gaye, led to the formation of Maze and their subsequent rise to prominence.

Their self-titled debut album in 1976 marked a turning point, paving the way for a string of commercially successful albums that solidified their place in soul music history. Tracks like "Back In Stride," an anthem of perseverance, and the upbeat "Happy Feelin's" became enduring favorites among listeners. Notably, the universally acclaimed "Before I Let Go," with its poignant exploration of love and loss, propelled them to even greater recognition.

Beyond the studio, Maze was celebrated for their electrifying live performances. Beverly's passionate vocals, coupled with the band's tight grooves and energetic stage presence, created a memorable experience for audiences across generations. Their concerts transcended mere entertainment, serving as celebrations of life, love, and community, drawing crowds with their heartfelt messages and undeniable presence.

While this marks the end of an era with Beverly at the helm, the music of Maze lives on. "Maze Honoring Frankie Beverly," led by vocalist Tony Lindsay, will carry the torch forward, ensuring the band's legacy of soulful excellence endures.
