that’s right, lovelees, i had the awesome opportunity to catch SADE & JOHN LEGEND live in concert. i love *both* artists in an “no ordinary love” type of way and i had never seen either one perform live, so when our friend gave us the heads up on them being in our neck of the woods, we decided to double-date it up for this amazing duo!
the concert was @ the US Airways center, right in the heart of downtown. i’ve been there for business seminars before and other talks of the sort, but never for a concert. suffice to say i felt pretty lucky even getting the nosebleeds — i can’t imagine how much people paid to sit on the floor, front row center.
john legend was fantastic in his crispy clean all-white get-up; not a wrong note came out of his pipes. a great band and back-up singers as well. just when i thought we couldn’t get any more soul, sade hit the stage:
her show was AMAZING. she had great background lighting/settings/film/video sequences, really great set design; minimal, clean and classy. her speaking voice and the way she introduced her band after their set, it made my heart swoon! she seems like she just rolls of bed without a care in the world, all super dreamy and sultry around the clock. (((sigh))) i can’t believe she’s 52 years old! i can only hope and pray to be so amazing when i hit my 50s. 😉
very happy campers 🙂
