It’s His Turn
In an interview, Legend shared his amazement over his fellow “The Voice” judge Gwen Stefani’s Las Vegas show.
“We loved the show. I thought it was beautifully put together. The performance was amazing and Gwen was in top form,” he told Billboard. “It was really inspiring to watch her do that and know that we could possibly be on that same stage. And I’m excited that we’ve sealed the deal with Caesars Entertainment.”
“The setlist will be a cool, career retrospective. 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.”
A Nostalgic Feel
He continued, “This is the 15-year anniversary of Once Again, my second album. It’s amazing that we’ve had a sustained impact for this long. And it’s also weird when you meet new artists who say, ‘I grew up listening to you.”
He added, “We’re so fortunate to be in a position where we’ve had longevity and people still want to hear what we have to offer. And 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.”
Closer To Family
Apart from performing his greatest hits, Legend is excited about the fact that some of his family lives in Nevada, where they could easily go to his performances.
“Some of my in-laws live in Las Vegas and we love spending family time there,” he explained before adding, “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.”
Legend also said that “Vegas has so much to offer. And we want to be a special part of that.”
