Sade’s first world tour in over 10 years. John Legend. Do we need to sell this? This will arguably the most prolific musical experience at the Verizon Center all summer. The soulful stylings of John Legend and Sade are epic. Sade’s star power in the 80s and 90s was matched only by acts like Sting and U2. John Legend has been able to appeal to hip-hop heads and housewives alike. Not easy. Rarely done. Incredibly gifted!
