Comcast (News - Alert), a provider of entertainment, information and communication products and services, has reportedly partnered with American recording artist and six-time Grammy winner John Legend to offer an exclusive first-look at the Evolver Tour Concert to Comcast’s customers.

The company now premieres the Legend concert, along with other special musical programming from the artist, On Demand in HD and on Fancast XFINITY TV.

“I’m proud to partner with Comcast to bring my Evolver Tour Concert to millions of viewers for the first time,” said Legend.

The nearly hour and a half concert, captured in HD from the Greek Theatre, features Legend’s hit singles “Green Light,” “Ordinary People,” “Good Morning” and “Let’s Get Lifted” and music videos such as “Redemption Song,” “Used To Love You” and “Satisfaction.” 

Comcast also offers special interviews with Legend and select individual songs from his concert performance. 

The John Legend On Demand offering can be viewed by selecting “Music” > “John Legend” or by visiting the homepage for Fancast XFINITY TV, the company announced. 

Comcast is also offering the Legend concert and special programming on Comcast.net beginning February 8th.

“We are proud to offer our customers six-time Grammy winner and world-class musician John Legend in an exclusive, made-for-Comcast concert,” said Derek Harrar, senior vice president and general manager of Video and Entertainment Services for Comcast, in a statement. “Available On Demand from Comcast both on TV and online, this offering demonstrates where we’re taking our franchise content going forward.”

Comcast’s extensive On Demand library features everything from movies, music and top TV shows to the most popular kids, sports, lifestyle and local programs, company officials said.

Recently, the company, for the sixth consecutive year, offered Troop Greetings On Demand at no additional cost to its digital cable customers through the end of January.
