JOHN LEGEND NEEDS A NEW SET DESIGNER

Mr. Legend, his musical accompaniment, his lighting director, and stage crew are superb, but the backdrops were an irritating distraction.Many of the backdrops were geometric designs--huge circles moving up the screen, or lines moving diagonally up the screen. Swirls would have been welcome, or a close-up of Mr. Legend as he performed, so those of us in the back half of the venue could see him. And don't get a seat in the back half of the venue if you are subject to motion sickness--he seats are on plywood on top of scaffolding, so you feel movement in the floor and seats.

GREAT SHOW, POOR ACOUSTICS

Great, long show with wonderful visuals and fantastic musicians, singers and dancers. Unfortunately the acoustics were terrible. The bass overpowered many instruments. War times we could not hear the piano.

3.0 star rating Bobby V. from Calgary Alberta

TERRIBLE DISTORTED BASE NOT ENOUGH HITS

The first half of the show was mired in unrecognizable music and badly distorted base. The second half was much better with more hits and improved sound as John played the piano. So much potential....could have been great.

PREPARE FOR THE LONGEST WALK TO THE THEATRE !!!!!

Got there early for the Show but everyone was directed to walk for over a half hour through the entire hotel and mall mall just to get on the line! Ridiculous!!! Everyone was complaining as we all kept walking!!’ Ridiculous! Then finally got to see the show but between the band being soo loud think it was the driums you could hardly enjoy his voice it was overpowering! Dancers were great and so were singers.

EXPECTED MORE

We saw John Legend at the Hollywood Bowl. He has an amazing voice, that is for sure. He didn’t engage with the audience at all. He sang only ballads, nothing with a little upbeat tempo. In fact , he only sang a few of his songs. The rest of the concert was him talking about his claim to fame and name dropping names of celebrities he worked with. For a guy who gives singers advice on stage presence and putting together an entertaining shows, he didn’t.

ALL ABOUT THE BASS

The staging and bass player ruined the Ravinia concert. I waited all summer for Mr Legend. I walked out so disappointed that I could not even hear his supremely fabulous voice. So bad.

HE WOULDN’T STOP TALKING!

Great singer, lovely voice, excited to see him… Until he started to talk about himself endlessly. He took us from childhood all the way to the present day. He told us how great he was over and over again. His vocals are wonderful. But I don’t believe he will be a truly great talent until he gains some humility. Sing John sing. Stop talking about yourself endlessly.
