Alicia Keys & Miguel
Despite the sleepy conservative qualities of her most recent album, Girl On Fire, Alicia Keys doesn't need the help of rising R&B star Miguel to sell tickets, but we're sure not complaining about his being on the bill. Make sure you get there early enough to see what that critically acclaimed singer can do in the opening slot of an arena tour.
