A Legend-ary iTunes show from John

John Legend took time out from wedded bliss to get back to work and entertain crowds.

The nine-time Grammy award winner, who married model Chrissy Teigen in Lake Como on September 14, took to the stage at the Roundhouse in Camden for the iTunes Festival.

The 34-year-old - whose real name is John Stephens - was supported by his wife, who watched backstage as he performed a 90-minute set, incorporating tracks from his new album Love In The Future and hits Green Light, Ordinary People and Everybody Knows.

"I wanna get caught up in love tonight. This is the first time I've played a lot of these new songs," he said.

The Ohio-born crooner, wearing a black leather jacket, jeans and trainers, gave a nod to his recent nuptials when he sang All Of Me as his encore, revealing he serenaded his new wife with the track.

"This was the song I sang at my wedding," he said as he took his seat at the piano.

John also performed his rousing rendition of Bruce Springsteen's Dancing In The Dark, which he first played on Jimmy Fallon's talk show, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

"Springsteen didn't say anything to me. But six months later, I got a letter from him," he admitted.

As he ended his performance with Who Do We Think We Are, he said: "I feel good tonight. I feel the love in the air. London, I love you."

Justin Timberlake is the penultimate act to headline at the month-long festival before Katy Perry closes it on September 30.
