I saw Sade in Brisbane on 12 December 2011 returning after 24 years – it wasn’t anything but a ‘smooth operation.’
My fabulous company at the gig Mr Black Cat summed the concert up in one word: ‘perfection.’
On November 2 2011, I saw the incomparable Miss Janet Jackson in concert on the Gold Coast. I was too young when the Velvet Rope Tour first came to Australia, however that album remains my favourite to this day. I was truly blown away by her performance and ability to entertain while dancing AND singing and keeping it sexy (yeah that’s sexy, sexy, sexy….)
New Jersey natives Naughty by Nature aka hip hop royalty graced our city with their presence on October 29 in Brisbane. Unfortunately this was a gig yours truly could not attend, however HollysAGemini did so keep reading for the gig breakdown on the Naughty ones.
Before Nicki Minaj there was Eve. The princess of rap from Ruff Ryders fame. Last night I checked out Eve at The Hamilton Hotel and was really blown away by her live rapping ability and swagger to match.
Thirty-nine year old R&B singer Joe Thomas bought his “The Good, The Bad, The Sexy Tour” (his new album title) to The Jubilee Hotel in Brisbane, Australia 9 September. My girlfriend and I fronted up to see the sexy crooner and I was anticipating a hella good show as my favourite blog ConcreteLoop had given him a good review from a show he did for the Singers Room.
Big Boi from Outkast fame tours Australia
Big Boi aka Antwan André Patton the Savannah, Georgia native blessed my city with his 100% unique sounding southern rap last night. I don’t think there is anyone in the southern rap game (yes Lil Wayne and Cash Money I am talking to you) better than Big Boi and Andre 3000 for producing eargasmic beats with such a rich, soulful and regionally true sound (right down to the state). A close second would most definitely go to Goodie Mob fellow Georgians (anticipating the new album hard).
