fanMAIL: Review of Watch The Throne Concert in Atlanta (video)

Ignore all those breathless Stan reviews of the Kanye and Jay Z Watch The Throne opener in Atlanta last night. A loyal reader who attended the show told Sandrarose.com that the tour’s 1st stop in Atlanta started 2½ hours later than the 7:30PM time stamped on the tickets.

The sound system was crappy. The show was not sold out as some Stans have reported. And once it became evident that the show would not sell out, the tour’s promoters dumped hundreds of tickets on radio stations to give away.

When the rappers were finally announced at 9:00PM, the announcement was met with a round of boos from the audience, some of whom spent upwards of $450 for their tickets.

WTT continues with a 2nd show at Philips Arena tonight before moving on to Greensboro, NC on Oct. 30.

Read the reader review after the break.

Loyal reader Kiyah writes:

The show started around 9pm, although the tickets said 7:30. We didn’t arrive until 8:30 and the usher said the show time was 8:30 so we were good. I guess they scheduled the show on CP time! They announced that the show would start in 2 minutes and people immediately started booing, perhaps because they had been there since 7:30. But they indeed started in that two minute window to Kanye West walking out on stage and standing under a stream of red lights. The music that played in the background struck uncommon and uncomfortable chords that one would usually attribute to a horror story, which I’m sure was added to instigate the “Illuminati” rumors, but any spiritual person could tell that it was merely a ploy. After the initial music played for a fee moments, the stage began to rise in “Illuminati” fashion, which I thought was quite genius! Then JayZ came out on an entirely different stage in the middle of the arena, not far from the area where Beyonce and a smaller entourage of people sat. The entire arena was on its feet for three hours, as their show was like three concerts in one: Kanye’s, Jay Z’s and KanZ’s/ JayYe’s.

There was no chance to sit. No chance to rest. If you decided to rest, it was at your own risk, as you were guaranteed to miss some great moment. By far, my greatest moments were (1) realizing that Kanye had on a leather kilt over his leather pants, (2) admiring the love that these two brothers really share for one another (watching them perform was like watching a son perform with his father- you could feel the mutual respect and admiration), (3) when Jay Z performed “Big Pimpin,” only for Kanye to come behind him and say “every time I tried that bib pimpin shit, you know what happens…” (then the music blasted in with “now I ain’t saying she a golddigger…”, and (4) when they sat on the stage to sing the song to their unborn children. In all the concert was an amazing experience, and perhaps as a major fan, I’m biased, but I would be the first to say if the show was wack or less than what I had expected. It was not.

    People were booing because that was the second time they said the show was gonna start. It was the first show so it’s gonna be production issues and that was an added show the original show tonight is sold out. Overall great show they just have to work out some things out. But I’ll go again tonight to see what they changed.

    $450 for a ticket? I wouldn’t pay 450 to meet a bish and have a conversation. Stuff like this is why I don’t feel sorry for those without. If I like an artist, they’ll know because I’ll be apart of the reason why the RIAA sends them a plaque. If your concert ticket is more than $100-25 :kona:

    I’ll buy it bootleg and help dude on the block out.

    As much as I would like to see them I can’t see myself paying more than 100.00 for a ticket.. I was good with the special Jay had on Fuse.

    I had a great time at the Saturday show. Just when we thought the show was over, they stayed on stage and performed a few more songs. After the concert, I saw Rudy Gay of the Memphis Grizzlies. He’s super tall and really handsome.

    Ding ding ding, thank you. These performers forget that we’re the reason why their famous and on top of the charts. I’d be damned in a buy a person’s album, watch their show, and then I have to turn around and cough up anything over $125 to see you in person. I understand that they have to pay for the venue and other expenses but if you fill a 10k venue at $125 a head, ain’t nothing in Atlanta, or New York that expensive. :stop: with the nonsense.
