Legend was backed by a capable 11-piece band that featured horns, keys and back-up singers on a retro stage. Encouraged by Fallon, who called the performance “fantastic,” the audience gave Legend a standing ovation at the end.

A Legendary Christmas Tour continues through the end of the year. Legend has already made stops in cities across the Northeast. Up next is the Midwest and West Coast.
