The night included performances by various artists including Lil Jairmy, Dess Dior, Mariah the Scientist, and G Herbom, as well as some special guests specifically for Philadelphia. They maneuvered around and X-shaped stage so fans around it could experience them up close and personal. It was my first time seeing all of these artists live and it was an experience all in its own.
By the time Don Toliver hit the stage, the Wells Fargo Arena was packed from top to bottom. Everyone gathered around anticipating to see him due to his new found fame and notoriety and of course the man of the evening Future took to the stage as the headlining act.
As the stage lights dimmed and the curtain dropped, fans with floor seats stood on chairs to get a view as Future made his entrance. All around all you can see were lights coming from everyone’s phones recording the one and only Future as he made his entrance and presence felt. He opened his set with songs from his latest album, I Never Liked You. Behind him was a giant inflatable silver woman and lots of pyro. The rest of Future’s almost set took you down memory lane.
It was a reminder of how legendary his decade-long career has been and continues to be. This tour was for the real Future fans. A few special guests made an appearance. During Future’s set, Louisville rapper EST Gee performed a few of his biggest hits for the crowd. The surprises didn’t end there. Philly’s own Meek Mill took the stage, as well as Philly Freeway and Fivio Foreign.
Getting to see “March Madness” get performed live in March was the best way to wrap up the night. Future and his friends definitely brought a BIG party to Philadelphia!
