Acclaimed, multi-platinum selling, Oscar, Golden Globe and 10-time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter John Legend has announced dates for his highly anticipated North American tour, Darkness and Light Tour, which opens Friday, May 12th in Miami, FL. Hitting a number of major cities throughout the US including Phoenix on May 24 at Comerica Theatre. The multi-city trek will also feature Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Gallant as the opening act.
The tour announces on the heels of Legend’s fifth studio album Darkness and Light, which has received a plethora of critical praise since its December 2nd release on Columbia Records. USA Today hailed the album as John’s “most personal record” with tracks like “Right By You” which they described as “a heart –tugging rumination on his 7-month-old daughter, Luna.” Time Magazine called the body of work “unflappably classy” while the New York Times said Legend “treats love as something far more complex than a panacea and a fount of perpetual reassurance, with music to match.”
Continuing, the New York Times pointed to the album’s most recent anthemic hit single, “Love Me Now”, which they praised as “a seize the moment song,” that “revolves around an insistent, lo-fi piano figure, and its chorus first arrives with Mr. Legend nearly alone, singing over simple, fading chords.”
