Sade Live in Vancouver, Win Front Row Tickets

Comments 133 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Sade is bringing her soulful soft rock to Vancouver this Saturday with a concert at Rogers Arena on Saturday. A hit in the 80’s with Smooth Operator this UK group (fronted by Sade Adu) has had staying power over the last two decades. Ordinary Love topped the charts in the 90’s and in 2002 they won a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album.

Last year they released their sixth studio album, Soldier of Love, and once again took over smooth jazz countdown charts and earned a Grammy for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group in 2011. Ranked at #50 in VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” you can grab tickets to see Sade with guest John Legend from Live Nation for $49.50, $99.50 and $149.50.
