John Legend to Make First New York In-Store Appearance at Virgin Megastore - Union Square in Celebration of Release of New Album, 'Once Again,' on Tuesday, October 24

Grammy Winner to Meet Fans, Perform a Mini-Set with Band & Sign Copies of Eagerly-Awaited New Album, 'Once Again'


The multi-platinum Grammy-winning songwriter/performer John Legend will celebrate the release of his new album, Once Again, with fans at his first New York in-store appearance at the Virgin Megastore (Union Square -- 54 East 14th Street, NYC) on Tuesday, October 24 (the album's street date), beginning at 6pm.

During his in-store appearance, Legend will sign copies of Once Again and perform, with his full band, a mini-set of songs from the album.

Early bird fans purchasing Once Again at the Virgin Megastore (Union Square location only) on Tuesday, October 24, will receive a wristband granting admittance to the John Legend in-store event.

Executive produced by John Legend and Kanye West, Once Again premieres 13 new John Legend songs: "Save Room," "Heaven," "Stereo," "Show Me," "Each Day Gets Better," "P.D.A. (We Just Don't Care)," "Slow Dance," "Again," "Maxine," "Where Did My Baby Go," "Maxine's Interlude," "Another Again," and "Coming Home."

Lending production support to John, who co-produced seven of the album's track, are some of the hottest talents in contemporary sounds:; Kanye West; Devo Springsteen & Tom Craskey; Raphael Saadiq; Eric Hudson & Jack Splash; Craig Street; Sa-Ra Creative Partners (Om'Mas Keith, Taz Arnold & Shafiq Husayn); Dave Tozer; and Ken Lewis.

In 2004, John Legend -- then known primarily as an in-demand all-star studio session man -- stepped into the solo spotlight as a premier singer-songwriter-pianist-performer in his own right with his debut album Get Lifted. Driven in part by the hit singles "Ordinary People" and "Used To Love U," Get Lifted was a critical and commercial triumph, earning John an astounding eight Grammy nominations -- he won Best New Artist, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance ("Ordinary People") and Best R&B album -- and selling more than three million copies worldwide.
