John Legend, the nine-time Grammy Award winning recording artist, is coming to the historic Proctors Theater in Schenectady tomorrow Friday 16th. His All of Me Tour has been selling out shows across the Upstate region and beyond, making tomorrow night a special show for those lucky enough to snag tickets. The show is set to start at 8 pm with no intermission during the 2 hour performance. One of the reasons this tour so special is that Legend is performing acoustically with just his piano, making for a more raw and intimate show each night.
Legend’s tour is part of the promotion for his fourth studio album release, Love in the Future, produced by Kanye West and David Tozer, giving the classic soulful feel with a twist of modern sound. After a decade on the Billboard charts and with his new album, John Legend recently landed his first Hot 100 No. 1 spot with “All of Me.”
The singer songwriter has been named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people and is celebrated for more than just his music. Legend is honored for his social activism with launching the Show Me Campaign, a nonprofit organization fighting poverty around the world. He is also a part of The Education Equality Project, Teach for America and the Harlem Village Academies.
