R&B crooner John Legend just headlined the Pearl in November, so why do we need to see him again so soon? Because this time he’s “intimate, acoustic and stripped down” at The Smith Center, without flashy graphics or dancers to distract us from his voice and skillful piano playing. One more reason to attend: $1 from each ticket sold supports Legend’s anti-poverty Show Me campaign. 7:30 p.m., $29 and up, TheSmithCenter.com.
