HE WAS GREAT - THE BASS WAS AWFUL

John Legend put on a great show however there was an overwhelming BASS BOOM that was so loud that it shook my bones. I can't for the life of me figure out why they did this since it didn't add anything to the performance. In fact, it interfered with the music. When he sang solo at his piano, without the accompaniment of other musicians it was fabulous. If you measure excellence by BOOM BOOM BOOM then the show gets a "10." If you measure it by the overall effect it gets a "7."

ALMOST PERFECT

The staging and presentation was fantastic but the drummers bass was so loud that you could not hear the backup singers and you could only hear John Legend when he was alone at the piano, that was great but the bass was distracting for the whole performance.

GREAT SHOW - NOT SO GREAT SOUND

This was a really great show that was less than it could be due to the sound levels. I don't understand why it had to be so loud - so loud that his voice was distorted much of the time. John has a great voice and we came to hear him. That was list in the boomy, distorted levels in his mic. We enjoyed his show and setlist but left a bit disappointed.

JOHN LEGEND, LIVE

I was fortunate to get these great seated tickets to see John Legend at Planet Hollywood on August 17, 2022. Great seats. I felt very disappointed in the show as a whole. I was embarrassed by some of the background dancers in this show. To the point we’re they in the correct show? The shows subject and title being “LOVE” which John Legend attempted to give the audience. What we were give was a lot of chaos. I did not feel a lot of love. I felt unnerved and my head hurt. Where was the intimacy? Too bad

AWESOME TO JOHN LEGEND UP CLOSE

Solo piano with stories about his career and life this concert was overall a great experience. This was my 7th John Legend concert as I just saw him in Vegas in October and also skipped this one. However as I mentioned this was a different experience with storytelling being main attraction. Some parts were a bit mechincal but great to hear John cover songs like By My Side and Ribbon In The Sky along with Bridge Over Troubled Waters and Dancing In The Dark. I think there was a bit too much storytelling the first half of the show which is why I'm only giving it 4 stars. Nonetheless this was a great experience

GOOD STORY

I guess I did not expect half of the show to be him talking about his beginnings in music which was entertaining and sharing his struggles in his life, until he put politics into it.. that was a bummer!

LOVED THE SHOW!

John "the legend" exceeded my expectations -- revealing is life/family story, humor, his kind heart, wide variety of music and amazing talent. I'd give the show a five, but at times, John's voice and lyrics got lot to all the backup (esp when the orchestra was engaged).
