Alicia Keys to take son on tour

Alicia Keys will make her upcoming world tour a family affair by taking her young son on the road with her.

The Fallin' hitmaker became a first-time mother in October 2010 when she gave birth to Egypt, her first child with her hip-hop producer husband Swizz Beatz.


Keys admits the tot is already showing signs he may follow in his parents' musical footsteps, and she plans to take the two year old with her on her next trek to teach him all about live shows.


She tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "He plays (piano). Egypt has a stark sense of rhythm. He also plays the drums already. He likes that most. The kid's making noise all day long. He's adorable... Soon Egypt will come on tour with me, and then he'll get a taste of that world. Most importantly, I want him to do everything he does with passion, whatever that may be."
