John Stephen’s stage name, John Legend, seems fitting. The popular R&B artist has won nine Grammys as well as a BET award and three Soul Train awards. On April 15, locals will get the chance to experience Legend’s performance at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center. It’s all part of Legend’s All of Me tour, which includes stops in Columbia and Greenville as well. Legend will be accompanied by string performers as he serenades the Holy City. Tickets are $64-$79, and the show starts at 8 p.m.

Speaking of legends, Alice in Chains will be making a Holy City stop on May 6 at the NPAC — minus the late, great Layne Staley of course, who died from a case of the Seattle grunge rock sickness. Led by founding member, songwriter, and guitarist Jerry Cantrell, Alice in Chains is promoting their second reunion album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, but if you aren’t familiar the band’s Facelift and Dirt, you clearly don’t care about the history of rock. Up and coming Canadian rockers Monster Truck will be joining Cantrell and company. Tickets are $39.50-$69.50.
