Went to the Rihanna concert on Saturday night with the sister.
Let's see... opening act: JCole
He was good. He performed to a very small crowd since most people hadn't arrived yet; but, he was good.
I don't know any of his songs and I'd never heard of him before... but I remember his name now so, I'd say that he left a good impression!
Next up: B.O.B.
Now, I'd heard of B.O.B. but I didn't think I'd know any of his songs. Turns out, he's featured in lots of songs and I knew a good chunk of them. In fact, he's featured in one of my favourite songs right now
- Jessie J's Price Tag (2:19)
PS: I should also add that while B.O.B. is an incredible rapper, he whipped out a guitar and sang a song and... boy can sing!! A rapper that can sing and play the guitar? A crush is born!
And finally: Rihanna
Now RiRi puts on one hell of a show!! She is just as good live as she is on her album, she's entertaining, and her show fun to watch. She has a potty mouth and she's dirty as hell (there was a lot of v'jay-jay touching and at one point she brought a fan on stage, straddled her, and pretty much sat on her face); but, she is fricken awesome!
There were elaborate props and stage changes happening: from half a car that was vandalized during a show by 2 lucky fans (an unfortunate coincidence in light of the riots that just occurred here in Vancouver), to a pink tank that had RiRi straddling it's guns and shooting smoke at the crowd.
Overall, great concert RiRi and really good opening acts!
Up next.. Britney Spears on July 1st!! Don't judge me! I heart Brit.. I even loved her when she went a little coo-coo for cocoa puffs.
My mom is the unfortunate soul who is accompanying me to the show.. I should probably warn her that I'm going to lose my shit with Brit comes out and that I'm going to squeal like a 12 year old at a Bieber concert. (mom got stuck with the ticket because the sister is aware of the aforementioned crazy that will be displayed)
Stay tuned for the review. I'll try to be as objective as possible
