One of the hottest new R&B vocalists is appearing at Palanet in Padua for the only date in Northeast Italy on Saturday 21 March at 9.30p.m. After years in the background working with artistes such as Janet Jackson, Kanye West and Alicia Keys Legend has lived up to his name, becoming a cult musician in the New York underground, and today achieving world-wide fame and respect. Evolver, and the single Green Light, his newest offerings, signal a real evolution in his sound, though without losing his distinctive qualities. His previous releases Save Room and Ordinary people are destined to become future classics of the genre. R&B with a dash of jazz and soul and a fiery dose of piano all combine to create the authentic John Legend sound.
It is difficult to listen to Legend without being reminded of Marvin Gaye, but also newer R&B like Lauryn Hill and 90s singers are all part of the Legend styleTickets available from www.zedlive.com and at Coin Padua and Treviso, Box Office, Primi alla Prima (banca del Veneziano, bcc venete e casse Rurali Trentine Unicredit, Cassa di Risparmio di Padua e Rovigo, HappyTicket and Charta.
