Sade hasn’t been on the road for over a decade, so news of the fiercely private star going on tour is BIG. And if you thought it couldn’t get any better, the legendary Brit soul singer and her band have just announced that none-other than John Legend will be the opening act for the US leg of their tour. How cool is that?!
The singers will embark on a 50-date US and Canada tour, which will kick start on June 16 and last a staggering two and half months.
I saw John Legend live six and a half years ago at the Birmingham NEC, this is when he had just released ‘Get Lifted’. He was abosolutely amazing. And you know who was his opening act? A 19 year old Plan B. It was a great show, to say the least.
Sade will embark on its first European tour in 17 years on April 29 in Nice, France, making the rounds to Italy, Germany, and England.
Collectively, Sade and John Legend are nominated for seven Grammy awards. Legend got five nods for his critically acclaimed ‘Wake Up’ LP – a duet with The Roots, while Sade got two nods for the superb ‘Soldier Of Love’.
