Well, it took me a whole week from my return to the U.S. to get to a concert. This was the last of the Twilight Series this year and it went out with a bang. I lost count after a while, but I would have to say there were probably around 40,000 people or so. It was nuts. Big K.R.I.T. opened the night up for us. Well, I should say his DJ opened the night up for us. He mixed and mashed, or whatever it is that DJ’s do, for a good 20 minutes before the crowd was warmed up enough to witness the ReturnOf4eva. I thought Big K.R.I.T. did a pretty good job, it’s definitely not my favorite style of rap and towards the end of his set I was getting pretty worn out by him. Lupe Fiasco was pretty sweet though. I wasn’t too familiar with him, but he was a very entertaining performer. Lupe would take time in between songs and make sure the crowd was doing okay and trying to keep anyone from getting hurt. He also encouraged us to help out in our communities, to be good citizens and volunteer at schools and whatnot. After the pep-talk the Fiasco continued. He played some of the fan favorites like Kick-Push, Go-Go Gadget Flow, Hip-Hop Saved My Life, Superstar and The Show Goes On. The crowd loved it and everybody was singing along. It was pretty impressive. It was a great ending to the Twilight Series.
