John Legend Announces Christmas Album & Tour!

Written by Brooke Sharland. Published: October 01 2018


Happy October! But more importantly, Happy 30 DAYS TIL HALLOWEEN, and HAPPY 85 DAYS TIL CHRISTMAS! (Sorry, Thanksgiving, you’re pretty okay, I’m just not a huge turkey person) THE HOLIDAY SEASON IS UPON US.


Like myself, many others have been expressing their holiday cheer and getting excited for this year’s holiday season… including John Legend! The singer and recent EGOT winner just announced via his Instagram that, this year, he’ll be releasing a Christmas album!! This is already a good enough Christmas present in itself. Santa came early.



The album is titled A Legendary Christmas and will include 8 of your favorite classic Christmas songs, plus six new Christmas originals. I can already picture decorating the tree with the fireplace on,A Legendary Christmas playing in the background. Where’s my hot chocolate?


Not only that, but John is going on a Christmas tour for the album! Here are all the cities where his sleigh (or… tour bus) will be making a stop. (And while you’re at it, sign up for presale here, because presale tickets go on sale on Tuesday, October 2, at 10am! Public sale begins Friday, October 5 at 10AM).
