In a very amiable statement, John Legend has announced both the delay of his fall tour and his disappointment over it. Legend had been planning for the tour to coincide with the release of his upcoming album, "Love in the Future," but said his time table hasn't worked out as planned.

"My team and I have made the agonizing decision to put off the tour until 2013 when we know we will have the new music done and will be ready to fully unveil the creative vision through the album and the live experience," Legend said in his statement.

Those who had purchased tickets for his concert at the Chicago Theatre (or anywhere else) can pursue a refund from the same place they purchased their tickets.

Legend said both the album and his tour can be expected in the spring: "I don't like letting my fans down, and I sincerely regret disappointing the thousands of you who have already spent your hard-earned money and gotten excited to see the show."
