Quite slow on catching up with this as the gig was last Friday. It was a fantastic gig. He has a lot of energy on stage and needs to for a guy holding his own on a stage that big. All of the big tunes from Late Registration went down really well and the crowd seemed to be really similiar with some of the more obscure tracks from the album.
Of course, Golddigger got the biggest reception but that was a given from the outset. I had heard complaints about his last appearance in the Point, in that he only played for 45 minutes. Well he set that right on Friday by playing almost two hours. During his set he took time out to acknowledge some of his musical influences and played samples from Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and even sang Aha’s – Take on me at one stage. I’d definitely go see him again.
BTW, I didn’t take that photo above. Most of the photos I took didn’t come out well as we were a fair distance from the stage.
