Tickets for their 4/13 stop at the 9:30 Club went on sale today. Between lackluster crowds and poor performances, I haven't attended a decent hip hop show in years it seems but based on the clips above, all of that will be ending shortly.
FYI, those youtube clips unfortunately are not from this tour. I can only hope that the two are traveling with a live band. And if ALIen comes through on the drums? Sheeiiit (© Clay Davis)
On another note, why are Jay-Z Norfolk Scope tickets selling for $58 to $112? Do tickets come with a shot of Ace of Spade and a lap dance from Beyonce? Live Nation seriously needs to stop with that nonsense. I understand that we have to take inflation into account but that's just ridiculous.
The Hard Knock Life Tour was the first concert I ever attended and that was priced at $30. Now that I think about it, it might've even been cheaper. Seriously, look at that lineup, and that was when most of the acts were at their peak. Paying absurd amounts for one headliner?* Nah, I'm off that.
(Hov puts on a great show though.)
*Edit: Jeezy and Trey Songz are on the tour as well.
