A Little Legend Trivia

Are you ready for a Legendary experience?  Singer/Songwriter, Musician, Producer, Philanthropist, Entrepeneur John Legend brings his An Evening with John Legend to The Centre  on Monday, May 12.  For those of you who snagged seats to this SOLD-OUT show, you’re in for an amazing night. This nine-time Grammy Award-winning genius has been wowing audiences across the US for the last month and a half as he tours in support of his fourth studio album Love In The Future.

One of the first stops on the tour, which began on March 20, took Legend to San Diego where audiences fell in love with the stripped down concert experience that allowed the artist’s stellar vocals and beautiful melodies to take center stage.  A reviewer from U-T San Diego offers a tempting description of the night.

Let’s leave a few secrets about the show on the table, after all every live concert experience is unique and that’s part of what makes it so special!  Instead, we’ll put your love to the test with a few John Legend trivia questions.  You can check your answers right at the end of the article.
