John Legend announces European tour
John Legend has added 24 new dates to his 'Darkness and Light' tour kicking off in Glasgow, Scotland on September 8 and concluding in Lisbon, Portugal on October 14
John Legend will bring his 'Darkness and Light' tour to Europe this September and October.
The 38-year-old singer-songwriter will head out on a 24-date run kicking off at Glasgow's SSE Hydro Arena, Scotland on September 8, before wrapping up at Lisbon's MEO Arena, Portugal on October 14.
The 'All of Me' hitmaker will perform at London's The O2 arena for just one night on September 16.
The 'La La Land' star's tour announcement comes after his luggage was stolen at JFK airport in New York.
The musician was almost left without his luggage - which is reported to have included a pair of $30,000 Cartier Panther jewel-studded cuff links and a $500 pair of sunglasses, as well as designer clothes - when it was left unattended by his greeter and an opportunistic thief tried to grab it.
Luckily for the 'Ordinary People' singer, airport police saw the events unfold on the CCTV cameras around the area, and managed to catch the culprit before he made off with John's possessions.
Taking to Twitter on Friday (24.03.17), John quoted a tweet from one fan asking whether the thief had approached him and said: "This story is untrue. We use a trusted car service and they did not rob me. Our Delta greeter made a mistake and left a bag on the cart (sic)"
He then tweeted: "The bag was taken because it was left unattended. The airport police caught the person who took it (on video) and retrieved my bag.
"Thanks to the airport police/security. One could say it's been "handled". (sic)"
It is not known whether John was travelling alone at the time, or if his wife Chrissy Teigen and their 11-month-old daughter Luna were with him.
