On Friday the 15th of March I saw Anderson .Paak and his band, The Free Nationals, perform live at Alexandra Palace. It was a wonderful night seeing Anderson perform live because I have never seen him live in concert before and when I found out he was coming to perform in London, I just knew that I had to go. And I knew that if I didn’t attend that concert, I would be heartbroken forever.
He really is a great musician and I’ve enjoyed listening to his music. I first fell in love with Anderson when he released his second album, Malibu, in 2016. I’ve also really appreciated the past collaborations that he’s done with Dr Dre and The Game, two rappers that have some really great hits.
Anderson not only performed songs from Malibu but he also produced songs from his newly released album Oxnard and his debut album, Venice. I wasn’t too keen on Oxnard when I first listened to it but after giving it a few more listens, it finally started to grow on me. Anderson is definitely a great performer, he knows how to interact with crowds well and keep the party going. He even crowd surfed which I found absolutely ridiculous, but hey to each his own!
I honestly don’t have much critiques to say about the night other than that Anderson was a few minutes late coming onto the main stage. But it was a great night and I danced the entire night awayyyyyy!
I’m thankful to God that I was able to have the opportunity to see one of my favourite artists live in concert. Not many people can say they’ve even been to one concert in this lifetime but I’ve been to more than I can count on my fingers.
As usual I’ve included some footage from the night below, so feel free to check them out. Excuse my horrible singing voice. LOL!
