John Legend Tour - 2013 Made To Love Tour
After completing a 50-date tour with Sade in 2011, John Legend began working on his forthcoming album ‘Love in the Future’ due out September 3. New John Legend music was finally released in March of 2013 with the R&B singer’s first single “Who Do We Think We Are” featuring Rick Ross. ‘Love in the Future’ succeeds his collaborative studio album with The Roots Wake Up! And solo album ‘Evolver’ that included “Green Light”, Legend’s highest-charting single since “Ordinary People”.
To promote his latest album, John Legend announced a tour titled Made To Love Tour with opening act Tamar Braxton. The former member of The Braxtons is currently co-hosting a talk show called “The Real” with Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, Loni Love, and Tamera Mowry-Housley. Like John Legend, Braxton is set to release an album in September. Titled ‘Love and Way’, the album is Tamar’s second.
The 26-City tour will open in Mashantucket, CT at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods
October 20 and conclude in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre at LA Live
December 1. Legend will perform in almost every major market in the States including Boston, Washington DC, New York (twice), Atlanta, Miami, Salt Lake City, Seattle (twice), and Las Vegas. Made To Love Tour
tickets are averaging $176. A majority of John Legend tickets went on sale this week.
The nine-time Grammy Award winner will be a married man when he begins the trek through North America after a scheduled September wedding to Chrissy Teigen. ABC’s singing competition Duets that John Legend had judged with Kelly Clarkson
(also touring), Robin Thicke, and Jennifer Nettles, was not renewed for a second season.
