“I gave the band a break. We need a little ‘alone time,’ Las Vegas!” John Legendsaid, as he sat alone behind a grand piano, flirting and charming the audience. With just his piano and a spotlight, Legend delivered passionate songs “Dreams” and “Good Morning.” He garnered standing ovations while performing a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” and his megahit “Ordinary People.” Rejoining Legend onstage, the band helped the singer get everyone back on their feet with “Green Light” and “Used to Love U,” as Legend explored the stage with an ostrich-like walk, bringing his heels knee-high. Covers of Anita Baker’s “Angel” and Luther Vandross’ “Never Too Much” were a welcome surprise, but it was Legend’s charm and musicianship that made the night special. ★★★★☆
