Marvin Gaye's What's Going On with John Legend Tickets
Details of Marvin Gaye's What's Going On With John Legend and the Ticket Luck value
In 1971, Marvin Gaye released a concept album that dealt with the issues of war, poverty and a number of other social issues that highlighted the value of human life. Considered one of the greatest albums ever made, What's Going On was iconic in more ways than one. Not only did the album point towards society's shortcomings, but it also marked the return of Marvin Gaye to the world of music after the death of close friend, Tammi Terrell. The album contained nine songs, including the iconic "What's Going On," "Mercy Mercy Me," "Flyin' High," and "What's Happening Brother." Following the success of the album, Gaye proceeded to perform the whole album live in 1972. Now, more than forty years later, John Legend is looking to recreate that magic.
Born in 1978, John Legend, born John Roger Stephens, is a Grammy-winning artist who came into mainstream success with songs such as "Everybody Knows" and the smash hit anthem, "Ordinary People." Legend showed an interest in music since he was four years old. In college, he broke out of his shell and became part of an a cappella group. As he started playing around town, he also self-produced two albums, which he would sell at his live shows. Legend caught a break when he was given a chance to sing the hooks on Kayne West's songs. With his luck in place, West signed him, John Stephens changed his name to John Legend, and one of contemporary music's most melodious artists was born.
John Legend released his first official studio album Get Lifted in December 2004, under the label GOOD. The album had fourteen tracks, including his first hit, "Ordinary People." Apart from that, "So High," "Number One" and "Used to Love" were also featured on the album. Get Lifted topped charts all over the world and sold over two million records in the U.S. alone. Not only was Legend's debut a commercial success, but a critical one as well. It gave Legend his first Grammy run, where he won a Grammy for 'Best New Artist,' 'Best Male R&B Vocal Performance' and 'Best R&B Album.'
Following the success of his first album, Legend released Once Again in 2006. Again, Legend went on to win a Grammy for 'Best Male' while being nominated for various other awards. The album featured songs such as "Stereo," "Show Me" and "Save Room." The success of Once Again was followed by the 2008 release, Evolver. Evolver featured chart-topping singles such as "If You're Out There," "Green Light" and "Everybody Knows." The album marked the progression of Legend from a young singer to a seasoned artist.
The fourth studio album Wake Up! was released in 2010, and featured chart-topping singles such as "Wake Up Everybody," "Compared to What," "I Wish I knew How It Would Feel to Be Free" and "Wholy Holy." The album won a Grammy for 'Best R&B album of the year.' 2013 saw the release of his latest studio album. Love in the Future was a Grammy-nominated album that featured the smash hit single, "All of Me." Throughout Legend's discography, John Legend has been true to the sincerity and passion that he incorporates in his songs, which is what makes them sound more personal.
This year, John Legend is looking to create magic yet again and remind everyone of the power that arts and music can hold. Determined to pay homage to his childhood hero Marvin Gaye, Legend is all set to perform the What's Going On album with a live orchestra at Hollywood Bowl this year. Calling it "What's Going On.Now," Legend is determined to use Gaye's music to shed light on the social issues of today and bring them to the surface.
