John Legend Ravinia show

June 10, 2017, Ravinia, Highland Park

Last minute I was able to get 2 pavilion tickets for the John Legend concert. I took my daughter as a surprise. John Legend headlined Ravinia’s opening night kicking off his Darkness and Light Tour. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and new Tony Award winner for co-producing “Jitney”. His blend of gospel-inspired soul and classic R&B with modern pop polish delighted everybody in the sold out pavilion and lawn. The gorgeous set, featuring a black oval frame, was the perfect complement to his solid performance.

John Legend opened with “I Know Better,” which is also the first track on his new album, Darkness and Light. He proceeded to perform more selections from the album, including “Overload,” “Surefire,” “Love Me Now,” and “What You Do to Me” as well as old favorites such as “Like I’m Gonna Lose You,” “Save Room,” “Green Light” and “Who Do We Think We Are.” He even invited one lucky fan to join him on stage as he sang “Slow Dance.” His beautiful a cappella rendition of the Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows” was beautiful and moving. Curtis Mayfield’s “Superfly” was playing the moment their Luna daughter was born, so he played that in tribute to her and his wife, Chrissy Teigen. Of course, John Legend ended the show with “All of Me <3


John rocking it !
