Legend Will Preview Songs from Forthcoming Album “Love In The Future”, Hit Major Cities Across The Country Including New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago

Nine time Grammy Award winner John Legend announced his North American Tour today, which will kick off on October 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, August 17, 2012. Check for more information.

“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.”

This summer, Legend released one of the hottest singles of his career, the chart-topping hit “Tonight (Best You’ve Ever Had)” featuring Ludacris, which has been #1 for six weeks at Urban AC radio. The song is heavily featured in Steve Harvey’s film, Think Like a Man.  Legend was most recently a judge on ABC’s hit music show Duets.

John's debut album, Get Lifted, received eight Grammy Award nominations; it won Best New Artist, Best R&B album and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for “Ordinary People” while selling more than three million copies worldwide. His follow-up album, Once Again, achieved RIAA platinum sales certification and a Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for "Heaven." In 2008, John released Evolver, his third Top 10 album, which included the hit single “Green Light” featuring Andre 3000.  Recently, Legend teamed up with The Roots to release the socially conscious album, Wake Up!  The album was nominated for five Grammy Awards and won Best R&B Album, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B song (for “Shine” - an original composition also featured in Academy Award-winning director Davis Guggenheim’s documentary film Waiting for Superman) along with two NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Album and Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration.

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

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 US on August 7.
