Drizzy Drake’s Club Paradise comes to Chicago
Finally, the Club Paradise tour made its stop in Chicago this past weekend! Naturally, we had to arrive in style, so we decided to get a stretch Escalade to chauffeur us out to Tinley Park (cause who really wants to drive all the way out there anyways). After a couple detours, a bathroom break and a stop at Burger King, we finally made it. Unfortunately, that meant we missed most of the opening acts, and I really wanted to catch Chicago’s own LEP. But we did arrive just as Waka Flocka was finishing his set.
The good news is that we caught J. Cole, who I love! Although, I really wish his set would’ve been longer. I felt like he only really performed a few tracks and his set went by so quick.
Regardless, the star of the show was Drake. I was excited that his set was long, and included lots of great tracks. Although I could’ve done without the 30-minute shout out to various sections of the audience (ok, maybe it wasn’t that long, but it was already late and a little too much).
And there were two surprise cameos – 2 Chainz & Chief Keef. 2 Chainz came out to do “No Lie” with Drake and Chicago’s own Chief Keef came out to do “I Don’t Like.” Even though I wish The Weeknd would’ve made a surprise appearance, the other two definitely brought the energy to the stage and excitement to the amphitheater. Check out a clip of Chief Keef’s performance on Fake Shore Drive.
I’m really liking 2 Chainz more & more, too – check out this interview with Muve Music he did at SXSW, the day of his surprise appearance at the SOBs showcase (full discloser: Muve Music & Cricket Wireless are a client):
