How to book an intimate concert with singer John Legend in a secret LA location

As part of Airbnb’s social impact experiences, an intimate concert will be hosted by American singer-songwriter John Legend in Los Angeles in June. John has collaborated with the hospitality service website to curate eclectic nightlife experiences in some of his favourite cities, including New York, Rome and Paris. This particular concert will take place in a secret location on 21 June, and concert-goers will also enjoy wine from the “All of Me” star’s Legend Vineyards Exclusive collection and soft drinks.

John is known for his recent performance in the title role in the NBC adaptation of the classic rock opera, Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, sharing top marquée billing with Sara Bareilles (Mary Magdalene) and Alice Cooper (King Herod). He won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2015 for the song “Glory” from the film Selma, and has also won ten Grammy Awards and a Golden Globe. His is married to model Chrissy Teigen, and they have a two-year-old daughter Luna and have another baby on the way.

Tickets for the intimate concert will cost US$200 (€161) and there are only 50 available. The first 20 have already been issued, and the next 15 will be released on 11 May with the final 15 going on sale on 11 June. Guests will be notified by noon on the day of show about where the exact location in Los Angeles will be. The money raised from the experience will go to FREEAMERICA, a multi-year culture campaign initiated by John to transform America’s criminal justice system.
