Second, Life In Color E.N.D. tour. -_- Where do I even start? This post is going to be long, I apologize in advance. There is TONS to say about this event.
Venue- It was a bit difficult to find, but since I had attended a Rob Zombie show there a few years ago, I knew where to go. No bathroom access…for those of us who had been stuck in a car for nearly 2 hours trying to get there early enough to get a good spot, this was very frustrating. The security guards outside were ill prepared to give directions to the different lines for VIP and GA. Once we were inside, the venue wasn’t terrible.
Music- Although the music was a bit more “housey” than I typically prefer (as was expected with Steve Angello as the headliner), I still enjoyed listening and dancing to what I was able to. I had a few mishaps that stopped me from enjoying it, which will be explained later, but as far as the music goes, I approve. I was able to dance my ass off with my awesome dance partner for the first half of the show!
Performance- I was highly disappointed with the performances throughout the show. Before attending, a friend of mine had warned me that Steve Angello does not put on a very good show, and that I may want to skip out of spending the $40 to watch him bob his head to the music. Although this advice was greatly appreciated, I chose to attend anyway (especially since I ended up getting a ticket for free). As much as I hate to say it, my friends warning was an understatement to how terrible this show was. I had already attended “Dayglow” once, and the additional performers acrobats, stilt walkers, dancers- had made the entire show wonderful, so I was expecting something of the same caliber at this one. No such luck. The performers they did have were only on stage for a very limited amount of time. No sexy dancers to watch at all! WTF? The one saving grace were the two men who performed the German Wheel. For anyone who doesn’t know what that is, check out this video:
Due to how horribly pissed off I am at how the audience acted at this event, I feel the need to break this post apart even further. Click here to read all about the wonderful people at Life In Color.
