This is the last U.S. show for Yahoo! On the Road before it trundles off to Europe — which explains why we'll have our esteemed Yahoo! yodeler Wylie Gustafson on hand for a special appearance.
Here's how you can score tickets to watch the show in person:
If the first day of our month-long Yahoo! On the Road series is any indication of the greatest to come, we are in excellent shape. Friday morning started with our host Ben Lyons having cupcakes with the GMA Live morning crew and ended with Grammy award winning John Legend performing a spectacular show at New York’s United Palace Theatre. Get more details and other highlights from the day in the recap below:
1) As if John Legend isn’t already miles ahead of his fellow male soul contemporaries, he broadened his lead Friday, playing a full set with the Salomé Chamber Orchestra at New York’s United Palace Theatre. “This is the first time we’ve done something like this,” he said, 17 minutes into his one-hour-and-15-minute set. The synergy was spot on as they accompanied him on his already easy, sweet classics “Where Did My Baby Go,” “Again,” and especially “Good Morning” and “Ordinary People.” The latter actually felt much like the original. The attentive audience listened in near silence, save several women who could not resist shouting their love for Legend during quiet moments.
John Legend (joined by the Salomé Chamber Orchestra) and Ryan Leslie performed Friday night at New York’s United Palace Theatre and kicked off the Yahoo! On the Road concert series. Ben Lyons caught up with Ryan Leslie just before the show, and Leslie shared his best advice for going on the road -- which starts with a really good tour bus. Think this will work?

At New York's United Palace Theatre, Ben Lyons caught up with John Legend just before his kickoff performance for the Yahoo! On the Road concert series. Legend discussed everything from his charity to his new album, and it was hard not to love his romantic gesture for his fiancee, model Chrissy Teigen (which he mentions about one minute into the interview).
In one of his new songs called "The Beginning," he describes cooking breakfast. When asked for a little more information, Legend said he is no slouch in the kitchen -- especially when it comes to making food for Teigen.
"I am actually quite good at cooking breakfast, that is one of my specialties. I am very good at a breakfast sandwich. Chrissy's always got cravings for Sausage Egg McMuffin, and I basically can make my own version of that," said Legend.
