The Lege is hitting the road!
Nine-time Grammy Award winner John Legend announced his North American tour, which will kick off on Oct. 16, 2012 in Clearwater, FL, at the Ruth Eckerd Hall. The fall tour will sweep through the U.S., stopping in over 20 cities including New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Chicago. Legend will be joined by two breakout performers on his tour: HomeSchool Recording Artist Stacy Barthe on the first leg, and Lianne La Havas on the second. Tickets for the tour go on sale beginning Friday, Aug. 17, 2012.
"I'm thrilled to be back on the road," said Legend. "I look forward to seeing my fans across the country and sharing a beautiful night with them."
John Legend is teaming up with Tickets-for-Charity® to offer fans some of the best seats in the house. For every ticket sold, one dollar will go to benefit The Show Me Campaign, an organization Legend founded to help break the cycle of poverty through education. These tickets will be available exclusively at this location.
Stacy Barthe, a recent HomeSchool Records signing, is a fresh new artist who embodies the essence of young soul. She landed her first songwriting placement on Britney Spears' 2008 album, Circus. Two years later, Barthe released her first EP, Sincerely Yours, Stacy. Previously, she has worked with artists including Akon, Melanie Fiona, Estelle, Brandy, and Diddy.
Emerging as one of the UK's most buzzed-about new talents, Lianne La Havas has received international praise for her music, live performances and funky fashion sense. The British singer/guitarist debuted at #4 on the UK album charts with her full-length album Is Your Love Big Enough? The critically-acclaimed album was released in the U.S.
