Take a look here to see if John Legend is showing somewhere nearby

John legend is the quintessential modern day soul man. His music drips with the vintage feel of the genre's greats whilst seamlessly incorporating hip-hop and electronic influences. Since his acclaimed debut Get Lifted, he has released a further three solo records and a collaborative effort with The Roots, 2010's Wake Up! You will have also have heard his honeyed vocals on tracks from Kanye West, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. The man has nine Grammys under his belt and a Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Legend's latest release, 2013's Love in the Future, found the singer in an even more romantic mood than ever, no doubt inspired by his recent marriage to model Chrissy Teigen. Executive produced by long time friend Kanye West, tracks like the soaring Made to Love and piano ballad All of Me (his first Billboard number one single) ladled on the sensuality. Add in guest spots from heavyweights Rick Ross and Kimbra, and you have one of the year's most impressive and silky soul records.

Legend is touring Love in the Future across North America this summer.
