Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

John Legend will open a tour in Miami May 12 at Bayfront Park Amphitheatre, the artist announced today.

The 38-year-old singer-songwriter, who is married to model Chrissy Teigen, will start the Darkness and Light tour in Miami and then travel to more than two dozen cities before ending in New Orleans in June.

Tickets go on sale to the public beginning Friday, February 10. (AAdvantage credit card holders can buy presale beginning Tuesday, February 7). Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Gallant will be Legend's opening act.

Legend has also been involved in film lately. He had an executive producing credit on the 14-time Oscar-nominated film La La Land. He also appeared in that film, playing a jazz bandleader named Keith, along with stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. And he contributed to the film’s soundtrack with the song “Start a Fire.”

Every pair of tickets purchased online will include the option to also buy a copy of the album Darkness and Light. More details are available through John Legend's website.

Meet-and-greets with Legend and a winetasting will also be offered. Here's the tour schedule:
