Chillout Productions today confirmed another headline act for the 13th Edition of the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2015. The American singer-songwriter, musician, and producer John Legend, who is known for his legendary voice and soulful R&B, will return to perform at the annual festival as part of his Worldwide #ALLOFMETOUR.

Legend is scheduled to bring his signature mix of jazz, pop, and soul sound on Friday, February 27th at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.

Also contributing to the melody of the festival’s closing day, Esperanza Spalding, the acclaimed American jazz bassist, cellist and singer, will be opening this night with John Legend.

Anthony Younes, co-founder and CEO of Chillout Productions, said: “He’s an R&B icon and a true pop star. His sound is so recognisable and unique; we had to have him back to the festival after the big success of his single “All of Me”. He is an innovative artist that brings to mind the elegance of soul. Since he was last here in back 2009, the nine-time Grammy award winning recording artist John Legend has really risen in the ranks of stardom. We promise the audience that the night with Legend is every bit the intimate celebration of romance they might dare hope. Legend adds so much to the lineup and we are thrilled to welcome him back to Dubai."

Under its new format, the festival maintains its relaxed atmosphere, consisting of an elegant and comfortable set up for all from Front Pit (AED 950) and Golden Circle (AED 750), to Regular Standing (AED 395) and the high end VIP Spirit (AED 1,250), dedicated to sponsors, corporates and VIP individuals.
