Soul music vocalist John Legend has pulled the plug on his tour.

According to the AJC, Legend posted the news on his website that he was holding off on his North American tour until he finishes his new album Love in the Future.  The tour, which included an October 20th date in Atlanta, was going to feature songs from the new project but Legend claims he needs a little more time.

“I planned to release the album this Fall and go on tour to perform new songs from the album. We announced the dates before we’d finished the album because we were sure we’d finish the album in time. But, unfortunately, while the creative process has been exciting and I’m pretty certain we’re going to deliver the best album of my career so far, the timing hasn’t adhered to the schedule I originally envisioned. In other words, we’re not done with the album. And my team and I have made the agonizing decision to put off the tour until 2013* when we know we will have the new music done and will be ready to fully unveil the creative vision through the album and the live experience.”

Refunds for tickets will be available at point of purchase.
