MANILA - John Legend is coming to Manila.

The American singer-songwriter will stage on September 26 a concert billed as "intimate, acoustic, and stripped-down," local promoter Wilbros Live announced on its Facebook page.

The one-night show will happen at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

Legend's Manila visit is part of his ongoing "The All Of Me Tour," which kicked off in North America in March with stops scheduled until November this year in South Africa.

According to Wilbros Live in its announcement, tickets to Legend's concert in the Philippines will go on sale starting July 24.

Legend, whose real name is John Roger Stephens, has won nine Grammy awards since he released his debut album in 2004.

He is behind the hits "Ordinary People," "Everybody Knows," "All Of Me," and most recently, "You & I (Nobody In The World)."
