John Legend has postponed his fall tour, including an Oct. 20 date at Chastain Park Amphitheatre.
The soul man made the announcement on his website, telling fans that he’s holding off a road trip until the release of his new album, “Love in the Future.”
“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.”
Legend went on to say he’s never postponed a tour before and apologized for disappointing fans.
Refunds will be available at point of purchase.
