In an effort to continue the promotion of his latest album “Evolver,” R&B singer John Legend has added several mid to late summer tour dates. Kicking things off July 3 with an appearance at New Orleans’ Essence Music Festival, the Grammy winner will then head out to a July 5 show in Atlanta, GA, before going on to make appearances later that month in Cincinnati and Windsor, Ontario. Edging into early fall, Legend will turn up Sept. 1 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Details are included below. Legends âEvolver,â released last fall, debuted in the Top 5 on The Billboard 200, as well as the No. 1 spot on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Lead single “Green Light,” featuring OutKast’s Andre 3000, has been making waves on the pop, R&B/hip-hop and dance charts. In addition to Andre 3000, the disc features guest stars including R&B singer Brandy, Estelle and Kanye West, who also lends his skills on the production end, along with Will.I.Am and The Neptunes. In February, Legend took home his sixth career Grammy for his performance with Al Green on “Stay With Me (By the Sea),” which won in the Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals category.
