Ohio Native John Legend to Return to Rose Music Center for Summer Concert

The EGOT-winning singer/songwriter's Bigger Love tour will play the Huber Heights venue, which is about 30 minutes from his childhood home in Springfield, Ohio, in September. And, no, we don't know if Chrissy will be with him

Ohio native John Legend recently announced a 25-date North American tour for this summer and it includes a Sept. 5 return to the Rose Music Center in Huber Heights, Ohio near Dayton. Legend's Bigger Love tour also features Americana duo The War and Treaty.

The venue — which Legend sold out in 2017 — is about 30 minutes from his childhood home in Springfield, Ohio.

Tickets ($23.50-$113) go on sale on Valentine's Day (Feb. 14) at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com.

In 2018, Legend famously achieved EGOT status, becoming the first black man to ever win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. In early January, he released his latest single "Conversations in the Dark."

Legend — and to a much greater extent his wife, model Chrissy Teigen — are also social media stars, often making headlines with their Twitter posts. The couple's influence is so great they even got under the skin of the current President of the United States, who once found time to call Legend "boring" and Teigen "foul-mouthed" because they didn't heap praise on him for his self-declared "criminal justice reform." 

"Imagine being president of a whole country and spending your Sunday night hate-watching MSNBC hoping somebody — ANYBODY — will praise you," Legend tweeted in response. "Melania, please praise this man. He needs you."
