John Legend: “I’m really happy to be returning to London to perform at The O2 for this year’s BluesFest. My shows in London are always extra special and I look forward to seeing everyone in October!”
Also joining the line-up for this year’s event, which runs from Wednesday October 23rd to Sunday 27th, are Neo-soul star Raphael Saadiq and iconic American singer-songwriter Rickie Lee Jones.
With three Grammy wins and no less than fifteen nominations amongst his catalogue of critically-acclaimed music, Raphael Saadiq has collaborated with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Joss Stone and Jay-Z. Starting out in the rhythm and blues trio Tony! Toni! Tone!, the US singer songwriter has since produced songs for the likes of Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston, John Legend and Solange Knowles.
Rickie Lee Jones is a two-time Grammy Award winner whose inimitable style blends blues, pop, rock, jazz and folk. Over the course of an illustrious five-decade career she has collaborated with the likes of Tom Waits, Randy Newman, Donald Fagen, Michael McDonald and Dr John and her most recent album Kicks was released earlier this year to widespread critical acclaim.
Saadiq and Jones will perform headline sets at indigo at The O2 on Saturday October 26th and Sunday 27th respectively.
