 The411:  Sade with very special guest, John Legend, embark on a 54-date North American tour with a stop in Louisville, Kentucky at the KFC Yum! Center on Friday, September 9th at 7:00 p.m.   Sade’s first tour in over a decade will feature a 120-minute set of best known songs, including their recent Grammy-winning hit, “Soldier of Love.”

John Legend, the acclaimed singer, songwriter and pianist who is opening for Sade on all of the dates, treated fans to a long list of his well known songs.

Known for their one of a kind timeless sound, Sade has enjoyed phenomenal success both internationally and stateside throughout the span of their twenty-seven year career. Since the release of their debut album, Diamond Life, in 1984 the band has seen all five of their studio albums land in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart selling a total of more than 55 million albums worldwide to date. They’ve been nominated for American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and have won four Grammy Awards – first in 1986 for Best New Artist, then in 1994 for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group for “No Ordinary Love,” again in 2002 for Best Pop Vocal Album with Lovers Rock and most recently in 2011 for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group for “Soldier Of Love.”  The band also recently released The Ultimate Collection, a 28 track, 2-CD set of their best known songs.
