He joins Duran Duran as part of the 2018 Dubai Jazz Festival line up…

As one of the first major concerts on the calendar, the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival is known for bringing some of the biggest acts to Dubai – and 2018 is no exception.

After the legendary Duran Duran were announced last week, another ‘Legend’ has joined the bill; 10-time Grammy award winning singer and songwriter, John Legend.

Legend, who is no stranger to Dubai having performed at the Jazz Festival in 2008 and 2015, will headline the second day of the festival, which takes place from February 21 to 23. 

John Legend’s latest album Darkness and Light has been a global hit, producing two top 10 singles; Love Me Now and Penthouse Floor. The album debuted on the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 and was streamed over 12 million times in the first week.

Legend, who has also won a Golden Globe, is perhaps most famous for his 2013 track, All of Me.

Fans can get hold of early bird tickets from 12pm on December 11 until 12pm on December 13 from dubaijazzfest.com
