John Legend will deck the halls of the Fox Theatre with 'Legendary Christmas'


We have some really good news and some deeply disturbing news. Good news: it was announced Monday that R&B crooner cutie and piano man John Legend is bringing his "Legendary Christmas" spectacular to the Fox Theatre. The bad news? That means Christmas is just 85 days away and please just let us die.

Anyway, let's focus on the positive because that's what Legend and his Twitter queen babe wife Chrissy Teigen would want us to do. News of Legend's visit follows his newfound EGOT winner status — that's Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony (he's also the first African American man and youngest person to receive the honor) and the details of his first and forthcoming Christmas record,A Legendary Christmas (Oct. 26) which includes a mix of holiday favorites and original tracks.

The 25-date tour kicks off in November and will deck the halls of the Fox Theatre on Dec. 6 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 5 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here for $49.50 and up.
