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.

Tickets for the love-rockers' show at BB&T on March 29, 2013, go on sale Saturday, Oct. 27 on LiveNation.com.
On Nov. 8, Maroon 5 will debut a single on the reality talent-show the Voice, in which frontman Adam Levine is a judge.
The band has been nominated for two American Music Awards this year, and pop songs such as "Moves Like Jagger" and "Payphone" are topping the charts, but one can only hope the setlist next year will include some early-2000s gems. "Harder To Breathe," off Maroon 5's 2002 debut album "Songs About Jane," was the bold type of bedroom rock suitable for lovers more interested in roughing around than laying over rose petals. Let's bring that back.
The LiveNation pre-sale begins Thursday, Oct. 25 at 10 a.m. and ends Friday at 10 p.m. The password is, reasonably, TICKETS.
