John Legend has a special concert planned for certain credit card enthusiasts.
If you’re one of the people who signed up for the Citi ThankYou program, then you can attend a special one-off performance strictly for members. In other words, if you’re not enrolled then you won’t have access to the gig. Chances are a few John Legend fans are cursing their poor credit scores right about now.
John Legend fans who have a Citi credit card hanging out in their wallet or pocketbook can purchase tickets for the show that’s presently scheduled at the Emerson Theatre in Los Angeles on April 21. All of the proceeds for the show will benefit Teach for America.
“Whether he is performing solo at the piano or with a backing band, John Legend’s shows are always extraordinary. John’s showmanship and the way he engages his audience at our events always leave our cardmembers wanting more,” Citi’s Jennifer Breithaupt said in a statement.
John Legend is also extremely excited to perform the gig for Citi ThankYou card members. The singer explained, “Performing in an intimate setting is special for both me and my fans. I am glad to share in the celebration of my road to the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, and it will be a night to remember.”
Citi members can score tickets using the aforementioned credit card by visiting the official ThankYou events website. Unfortunately, you’ll need that card to snag seats at the event. If you don’t have a card at your disposal, then you might want to hit up a friend who’s enrolled in the program.
Although you might shed a tear or two during Legend’s set at the Emerson Theater, don’t expect John to do the same. The singer recently revealed that he’s not really the sort of person who starts crying whenever an insanely sad song finds its way onto his stereo system.
“I’m not much of a crier. Everyone thinks I’m so emotional because of my songs! I wrote [‘All of Me’] a couple of years ago. When I came home I was like, I wrote a really good song baby, I think you’re gonna love it and she started crying,” Legend recently explained.
He continued, “I knew it was gonna be a special song, I just had a feeling that a lot of people were gonna love it after her reaction. And then I sang it at my wedding and a lot of people have used it at their weddings.”
