John Legend, James Taylor Headline TU Center Reopening

It's being billed as grand reopening of The Times Union Center, which originally opened in January 1990 as the “Knickerbocker Arena.”

Frank Sinatra opened the doors of the building at 51 South Pearl Street back then, now on January 26th legendary singer/songwriters James Taylor and John Legend will be performing along with local singer and Latham-native Moriah Formica, who had a great run on NBC’s “The Voice" this past Fall.

The event will be hosted by Comedian Jim Belushi.

Recently the TU Center underwent a $19.6 million dollar renovation, which included enclosing the front atrium.

Tickets go on sale on December 18th. Prices range from $62 to $192.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Pediatric Emergency Care department at Albany Med.
