Customer Reviews for John Legend
Performer (A) v audience (F)
John Legendâ€™s performance was amazing & fulfilling. From start to finish, he and his talented team engaged the audience. However, as one enterâ€™s Planet Hollywoodâ€™s Zappos theater, a sign states that the audience is encouraged to stand. That attitude encourages energy, but it ignores the needs of shorter people (me) and older ones (my husband), and the less vigorous. While most audience members respected their audience neighborsâ€™ needs, we, unfortunately, had a couple blocking views entirely, including a couple in the row below ours, my husbandâ€™s view, and the older manâ€™s (next to him) view. We would not have purchased tickets had we known that we needed to stand throughout the performance. We specifically purchased tickets near the very rear of the theater bc we understand that the young & healthy want to stand and dance near the pit area. So my advice to venues and performers is to save a section for the short, the older ones, and the less robust to be able to view in comfort.
Top A+ Performance
John Legend brought his A+ game to Philly. His songs sound quality was awesome! I definitely enjoyed myself on a Wednesday in Philly. So many artists modify their music during shows and forget why we go to their concerts â€¦to hear our favorites. His band was energetic and sound great! Theyâ€™re All definitely talented! And you canâ€™t forget his backup singers! Iâ€™d definitely go see future shows by him! Thank you! Keep giving us your best John!
One of the most impressive aspects of Johnâ€™s show was when he performed at the piano, just voice and keys. Stripped down bare he still commanded Ravinia. The rest of the show was, musically, equally superb. The background singers and the stage set were retro, like it was 1969, contrasting with the futuristic and incredibly beautiful graphic arts on the backdrop screens. The set was like another performer, complete with multi levels and ramps used to bring John, the background singers and the horns upstage high or downstage low. Speaking of the background singers, the only thing more impressive than their gorgeous Afros and beauty were their superb voices and the class they exuded. Sound engineering was tweaked all night like a fine wine, getting better with each hour. The highlight though was Johnâ€™s new destined to be a hit song, Stardust. We need the philosophical beauty of that song that we are immortal, born from stars and destined to once more, become stardust and live again.
Soooooo Good !
The Murat is a wonderful place to see a concert, and John Legend did not disappoint. He sounds exactly how you hear him on the radio. What a wonderful entertainer- He engaged the audience from the get go. His band, backup singers (stellar) were great. The whole concert had a retro feel, which was fun. My only negative comment is towards the rude people that I sat next to. They talked in high volume the entire time while on their undimmed screen phones.
Best Christmas Show of this Season
A legendary Christmas!!! John Legend was mesmerizing from start to finish and the background singers and musicians are extremely talented, and brought a lot of energy. The production crew is also commended for their flawless transition from scene to scene. I recommend this show to children and adults. The best Christmas Show of the season and an amazing culinary delights at Osteria Costa closed out a night to remember.
