Last week one of the most anticipated events happened, my all time favourite rap artist finally graced our shores. It was one of those concerts I had been eagerly awaiting, I even contemplated going to watch him in Ireland last year! Crazy Much? Absolutely!
The concert took me back to 1999, being a new mom and still very young - his lyrics spoke very strongly to me. Having emerged from tumultuous teens, his rap style was raw and full of emotion, it drew me in and I have been a fan ever since.
A couple of years ago, when his Recovery CD released, I accidentally synced it to my boys’ iPods (after trying to shield them from his music due to explicit content eek). I discovered this when I heard Ameer and Ziyaad singing along to Not Afraid… to my horror they too became instant fans. So they trailed along to their first concert ever, I had two very excited teens on my hands the entire week!
I have no other words but to say he was EPIC! And his entrance was spectacular, a sheet draped across the stage with EMINEM emblazoned on it and on outline of his shadow made the crowd go wild- a proper welcome. His performance, was everything I had hoped for from this controversial rapper. I will be watching video clips for a long time to come…
My outfit for the night included checked shirt over a sequin t-shirt, thrown in for a bit of glam. It was perfect at home, but when we arrived in town, it was still sweltering so I had to ditch the shirt :-D
