John Legend - April 22-23
The multiple Grammy winner returns to South Florida, one of his favorite touring haunts, following a
judging gig on the ABC reality singing competition "Duets." Legend's hits include "Ordinary People,"
"Used to Love U," "Heaven" and "Save Room."
The former child pianist prodigy played with Lauryn Hill,
Alicia Keys, Twista and Janet Jackson before he was 'discovered' and signed by Kanye West.
Legend has returned the favor by providing an opening act platform for such then-rising talent as
Robin Thicke, India.Arie and Corinne Bailey Rae.
This time around he's performing in an
intimate, acoustic setting highlighted by guitar, vocal accompaniment and a string quartet.

South Florida rap icon Rick Ross has announced an eight-city tour in support of his imminent “Mastermind” album, including a Nov. 23 stop at the James L. Knight Center in Miami. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at AXS.com.
The tour will team Ross, who grew up in Carol City and has a residence in Fort Lauderdale, with the 1500 Or Nothin’ Band, a five-piece group that has toured with artists including Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, T.I., The Game and Faith Evans. Ross and the 1500s recently performed at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, a show broadcast live on Mark Cuban’s music-friendly AXS TV.
“It’s never been done like this,” Ross says in a press statement. “We’ll be performing everything from ‘Tears of Joy’ to ‘Aston Martin Music,’ all with a live band. It's time to remind everyone what Maybach Music is all about.”
