Alicia Keys Burns Bright at ‘Set the World on Fire’ Tour Launch

Alicia Keys burned up the stage last night during the kickoff to her “Set the World on Fire” tour at WaMu Theater in Seattle. The Grammy-winning songstress pulled out all the stops, showcasing her hits with a high-production set that included dancing, lights, and wardrobe changes.

Following Miguel’s opening act, Alicia took the stage to perform new and old material. She banged on the drums during the title track, played the piano for the Emeli Sandé-penned ballad “Not Even the King,” and took it back with her debut single “Fallin’.”

Her husband Swizz Beatz and son Egypt also joined her on the first tour stop. The two-year-old had his own play area set up backstage.

The 24-city North American trek makes its way across the U.S. through April 18 before traveling to Europe in May.
