John Legend announced the postponing of his upcoming North American tour today. In a statement released on his website (link above), Legend gives details for the reasoning behind the push back to 2013 – essentially to give him and his team more time to complete his new album “Love in the Future.”

“We announced the dates before we’d finished the album because we were sure we’d finish the album in time. But, unfortunately, while the creative process has been exciting and I’m pretty certain we’re going to deliver the best album of my career so far, the timing hasn’t adhered to the schedule I originally envisioned. In other words, we’re not done with the album.”

Items of note related to the news are as follows: The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino show in Hollywood, FL originally slated for October 17, 2012 has been rescheduled to April 10, 2013; tickets already purchased will be honored for the new date. The Borgata Spa and Resort Event Center show in Atlantic City, NJ on Saturday October 27, 2012 is happening as originally scheduled.

New dates for the remainder of the tour have yet to be rescheduled. Check back here at SeatGeek for news of the new dates as they are released.


Although John Legend’s fourth studio album has yet to drop, the singer will embark on a North American tour previewing the release this October. Tracks from the forthcoming Love in the Future, in addition to past classics from the Legend songbook, will be the focus of his two-month trek throughout the United States and Canada.
