Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter John Legend brought his “Made to Love” tour on Saturday night to a sold-out Pearl at the Palms, and the crooner was joined by his new wife, supermodel Chrissy Teigen, who sang and danced all night at the soundboard.
Legend’s setlist included, of course, “Made to Love,” “Tonight (Best You Ever Had),” “Green Light,” “Ordinary People” and “Used to Love U.” During “Tonight,” a sound glitch cut out the speakers for a few seconds, but Legend and the band kept playing, and the crowd sang the lyrics.
Opener Tamar Braxton, sister of Toni Braxton, kicked off the show with songs from her new album, “Love and War,” including “Stay and Fight.” She talked often about dealing with new situations in her relationship and on her reality TV series “Tamar & Vince.”
