John Legend Takes Fiancée Christine Shopping, Postpones Tour Until 2013
John Legend was spotted out and about in West Hollywood today have a great shopping time with his fiancée, model Christine Teigen. Check out the pics inside, plus why John just had to break the news to his fans that he's cancelling his world tour, for now...
While Chrissy hid her left hand (as if we don't already know the two are engaged), the paps snapped the lovey dovey twosome out shopping today at Fred Segal.
The duo smiled it up for the cameras, but John had to break some bad news to his fans earlier today. The "Best You've Ever Had" singer is cancelling his upcoming tour in order to finish his new album, Love In The Future. But he will likely re-load it in 2013. He posted on his website:
Hey beautiful people,
I'm writing with a change of plans to share with you. As you all know, I've been working on my new album, Love in the Future, with Kanye and the rest of my creative team for a while now. I planned to release the album this Fall and go on tour to perform new songs from the album. We announced the dates before we'd finished the album because we were sure we'd finish the album in time. But, unfortunately, while the creative process has been exciting and I'm pretty certain we're going to deliver the best album of my career so far, the timing hasn't adhered to the schedule I originally envisioned. In other words, we're not done with the album. And my team and I have made the agonizing decision to put off the tour until 2013* when we know we will have the new music done and will be ready to fully unveil the creative vision through the album and the live experience.
I've never postponed a tour or done anything like this before. I've only missed a show due to illness a couple times in my eight-year career. I don't like letting my fans down, and I sincerely regret disappointing the thousands of you who have already spent your hard-earned money and gotten excited to see the show. Please know that we will try our best to make the music and the 2013 tour well worth the wait. In the meantime, ticket holders can get a refund on your ticket purchases now.
Thanks for your patience. I sincerely apologize if I've let any of you down. I'm going to get back to work and make sure we make this album the "best you've ever had."
