"The music is sensual and romantic," Legend told Billboard before his Nov. 11 appearance in Chicago, "and the whole concert experience will make people feel the love."

The 34-year-old singer has been known for his romantic ballads since his first album, "Get Lifted," was released in 2004 and produced his first hit single, "Ordinary People."

And just two months ago, Legend married swimsuit model Teigen in Italy. The Lake Como wedding location is also the location for the video of his current single "All of Me." The lyrics of that song include:

" ’Cause all of me loves all of you,

"Love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections.

"Give your all to me, I’ll give my all to you.

"You’re my end and my beginning.

"Even when I lose I’m winning.

" ’Cause I give you all, all of me.

"And you give me all, all of you."

The 22-city tour, which began Oct. 20 in Connecticut and ends Dec. 1 in California, is to support Legend’s fourth solo studio album, "Love in the Future," produced by Legend, Kanye West and Dave Tozer.

(Unlike West, Legend has not canceled any dates on his current tour.)

The 16 tracks in Legend’s new album include the singles "Who Do We Think We Are," "Made to Love" and, of course, "All of Me."

Legend has sold more than 7 million albums worldwide. In addition to the nine Grammys, he’s won three Soul Train Awards, the BET Award for Best New Artist and the Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Opening for Legend will be Tamar Braxton, who’s best known as Toni Braxton’s younger sister and one of the stars of two TV reality shows — "Braxton Family Values" and "Tamar & Vince."

She’s promoting her debut album, "Love and War."
