Live Nation sent this over on Friday: Sade made their return to U.S. shores last week when they opened their 54-date North American tour with a jubilant, sold-out performance at Baltimore's 1st Mariner Arena.

Their first tour in over a decade, the 120-minute set featured all of Sade's best known songs, including their recent Grammy-winning hit, "Soldier of Love."

Directed by longtime collaborator Sophie Muller, and with production and lighting design by Baz Halpin, the tour is groundbreaking from a visual perspective. With a 23' x 52' high resolution LED screen behind the band, and enormous projection screens all around the stage, beautiful, larger than life images accompany the music which has made Sade one of the most adored and enduring live bands in the world. The result is a visually stunning setting in which to hear one of the world's greatest bands on tour for the first time since 2001.

John Legend, the acclaimed singer, songwriter and pianist who is opening for Sade on all of the dates, treated fans to a long list of his well known songs.

The tour continues on includes multiple nights in Atlanta, Chicago, Oakland, Los Angeles and Anaheim before finishing in mid-September.
