On what the Las Vegas residency means to him, the 13-time Grammy Award shared:

“It’s amazing. I’m in great company. And I know that when you get to that point in your career where you’re offered this kind of residency it means that you’ve had some success. That you got a real career, you’ve got a repertoire. And I’m excited to sing all that music, all your favorites, from my whole catalogue. We’re going to play your favorite and make sure you have a good show, a good party — and have some really special romantic moments during the show.”

The star also dished on some of his most memorable moments in Sin City, sharing:

“We’ve had some fun times. I’ve had Vegas moments. And now that I’m married it’s a different experience. But I love Vegas. We actually have family there too. Chrissy’s sister lives there. So we visit family there. I’ve had so many fun shows there’s throughout the years on tour; and now, we’re excited to have a residency.”

John Legend also gave the crowd advice on opening up their minds and hearts to love, sharing:

“I think it’s about being honest, being a great communicator with whoever you’re partnering with. But also I think about love as a bigger thing than that — than just loving the people that you’re close to or the people in your family and your friends. I think that’s easy to do. But I think i’s even harder and even more important to love people that we don’t even know. I think if we’re able to extend our love to that and act politically, act socially in that way where we fell that love toward our neighbors; I think that’s a really powerful love and it’ll make the world a better place.”
