Designed exclusively for Zappos Theater and promoted by Live Nation and Caesars Entertainment, "Love In Las Vegas" is a beautiful, soulful concert experience, showcasing Legend's greatest hits, "soaring vocals [and] silky-smooth piano playing skills" (Billboard). The performance features Legend's incredible full band and is a vibrant, colorful celebration of love and coming together, sentiments echoed on Legend's GRAMMY Award-winning seventh studio album, Bigger Love, and companion 2021 headline tour – which resulted in multiple sold out shows and garnered rave reviews in the press. The exclusive, only-in-Vegas experience is filled with hits from the beginning of Legend's career, including "Used to Love U," "Penthouse Floor," "Like I'm Gonna Lose You," "All of Me," and "Green Light." He is also performing soon to be released new music ahead of his upcoming album including, "Dope" which received rave reactions from the crowd. The song comes out May 20 and is available for pre-save now.

"Love In Las Vegas" is a product of THE WORK, led by Creative Director Rob English and Executive Creative Producer Ashaya Robinson, alongside Creative Producer L.J. Alexandre-Strong, Production Design by Alec Spear with screen visuals by Immanent and Lighting Design by TJ Hoover, Josh Lowenstein and Kevin Labitan.

"Love In Las Vegas" features 91 looks on stage, envisioned and created by John's long time stylist Dave Thomas, who collaborated with Richfresh on all of Legend's looks and menswear allowing a vibrant array of styles for the residency.

John is joined on stage by an eleven-piece band including three singers, and for the first time, his production also includes eight dancers under the direction of Artist Director and Choreographer Jemel McWilliams. The choreography team also includes Craig Fishback, Kiira Harper, Jade Johnston, Dondraico Johnson, Tyrik Patterson and Ramone Wilkinson.
