Bennett Raglin

Grammy award-winning artist John Legend headlines the 2017 NBA All-Star Game Halftime Show in New Orleans on Feb. 19, 2017 at Smoothie King Center.

Legend is expected to play a compilation of his newest and classic hits. His newest album “Darkness and Light” was released earlier this month.

He previously served as the halftime entertainer at the 2009 All-Star Game in Phoenix.

New Orleans was awarded the All-Star game after commissioner Adam Silver decided to pull the event out of North Carolina due to its controversial bathroom law for LGBT people.
