‘A little more about older songs for my fans from back in 2004—they will hear everything they’ve loved over the years,’ says the singer and activist.
‘We’ll play songs from all the albums. My whole catalogue—my whole career summed up in a performance.’
And he is happy to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of Once Again, his second album.
‘It’s amazing that we’ve had a sustained impact for this long,’ he said.
‘And it’s also weird when you meet new artists who say, “I grew up listening to you.”‘

He added that he felt fortunate to be in a position where he has had longevity and people still want to hear what he has to offer.
‘I’m still making new music. I’m planning to put new music out next year, too. But I want to celebrate my whole career. I’m so grateful to have this many years to mine my repertoire of music,’ John also shared.
Legend also said that some of his in-laws live in Las Vegas and the family loves to spend family time there.
‘But of course, we love to hang out and party and have a good time—we’ve seen some great shows there. We’ve had some great meals there. Vegas has so much to offer. And we want to be a special part of that,’ he stated.

‘My music has always been a celebration of love. And that’s what we want to do with this concert. We just had the Bigger Love tour. And we want to bring that love to Las Vegas. We’re going to celebrate the music, we’re going to celebrate love, celebrate the connection that people feel when they’re at my shows and how we feel with them.’
And there will be hints of his 2021 tour.
‘We’ll have some elements from the last tour, but it’s going to be bigger, because the stage is bigger than a lot of the stages we play,’ he said. ‘And since it’s in one place, we can blow it out a little bit more without having to worry about putting it on a truck every night.
‘One of my favorite parts of the ‘Bigger Love’ tour was a stripped down set where it’s just me on the piano for 15 minutes in the middle of the show,’ he says. ‘I love doing that. I love storytelling and having intimate moments. And as much as Vegas has always been about kind of big splashy shows. We know that folks love those intimate moments and we want to give people that.’
Don’t count on many wardrobe changes on the show.
I’ll probably do three or four at most. I don’t like to leave the stage too much because I feel like I should be out there singing,’ he shared. ‘And if I don’t do ‘All of Me,’ I should be fired for malpractice.’
