The R&B/soul singer is said to make a stopover in Malaysia in September.
Update: John Legend IS coming to Kuala Lumpur
Rumours have been flying about since late April of R&B/soul singer John Legend coming to Malaysia for a concert after his gig at the 2014 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix on Sept 21.
Today, it seems like the rumours may be right, after all.
Legend, whose latest hit single All Of Me has sold over four million copies (a platinum certification), is said to be making a pitstop in Kuala Lumpur on Sept 23, for a show at the Plenary Hall of KL Convention Centre. Details of the show have yet to be officially announced, although there is news that tickets will begin selling on July 18.
The singer was last in the country in 2008, where he performed at the Sunburst KL festival. He has since released two new albums – Evolver and Love In The Future. Apart from All Of Me, Legend is also known for hits like Used To Love U, Ordinary People, Again, Stereo and Save Room.
In other news, Pet Shop Boys will also be holding a concert in Kuala Lumpur – its first ever in Malaysia – on Sept 23. The British duo is part of the Singapore Grand Prix show, too, performing on Sept 20. Other stars set to play at the same showcase include Robbie Williams (Sept 20) and Jennifer Lopez (Sept 21).
