Sade

After a 10-year hiatus from the North American concert stage, Sade came. She sang. She danced. She looked radiant. She conquered.

With the hypnotic sound of her elegant, alluring pipes unfolding in serene sonic tapestries of neo-soul, jazz and pop, the 52-year-old Nigerian-born, British-raised Helen Folasade Adu (aka Sade) first seduced music lovers in 1984 with "Diamond Life." And despite more than 25 years passing since her stellar debut, this sexy, exotic chanteuse with the silky, smooth operator voice and cool Anglo-soul is as entrancing as ever, as evident throughout her two-hour, 22-song set Wednesday night at TD Garden that included plenty of highlights, as well as a one-song encore.

Sade & John Legends's ongoing tour hit Nassau Coliseum on 6/21,
Izod Center on 6/24, and the Prudential Center on 6/25. Pictures from the latter, the setlists from all three NYC-area shows, and a just-released video for new song "Love is Found" from Sade's 'Ultimate Collection' (out now), below...

There is no other concert like a Sade concert. Do yourself a favor and go see her - you will not be disappointed.
