Guest Blogger: Wiz Khalifa Live Review

This post is from guest blogger Claudia Foxcroft, my neighbour. You can read her blog here if you are interested

So managed to hunt down a ticket for Wiz Khalifa last week at HMV Forum. The queue was INTENSE. Stretching around the entire building, with people from various blogs and magazines shoving dictator phones in the faces of eagerly awaiting fans. Once in, a pit stop to the bar was in order, followed by a careful weaving through the crowd, cider in hand. First up was Wretch 32, supporting Wiz on his UK tour. I have to say I’m a bit bias towards him, loving ‘Unorthodox’ for the simple reason my best friend features in the video! That and it is a sound tune. He definitely warmed up the crowd, waiting on tenterhooks for the appearance of Wiz. And finally he hits the stage, his energetic presence knocking us all for six. Personal fav? Well the obvious crowd pleaser of Black and Yellow did create an amazing atmosphere but I loved his take on Empire of the Sun. Everyone was either lighting up, or inflicting some killer moves on the floor. All in all the tempo of the night was insanely fast paced. I was in awe at how he hit each song with such energy. I literally felt tired just watching him perform! Loved the light projections throughout the night with WIZLA, ROLL UP and neon cannabis leaves being personal favourites. All in all a night to remember. This is one artist who knows how to put on a crowd pleasing rave.
