Jay Z & Kanye West- Watch the Throne World Tour; Manchester, UK

I’m sure we all remember my overwhelming excitement fit for a 4 year old on christmas morning when I purchased our Jay Z and Kanye tickets. Well last Monday we finally made it to see the incrediable duo at the Manchester Arena and its safe to say they did not disappoint.

For months prior to the run up I made the other half, Bonxy, listen to, and learn, all the songs on the Watch the Throne album (well!.. I couldn’t be signing along to myself now could I?!) Sceptical at first, it took him a while to get into but to a great success the show did not disappoint.

Prior to the tour I simply can’t remember my expectations, I mean I knew it was going to be epic.. but it truely was mind blowing. The crowd errupted as the pair rose from below! .. It’s possible I even cried at the sight of them. Yes, I am sad but the atmosphere was immense.

Following the pair from a wee nipper made the show for me, the aspect that they played their individual hits allowed me to Scream Shout Dance and ‘Diamond’ away at the classics! .. 99 Problems, Goldigga, Touch the Sky and ALL OF THE LIGHTS were amongst my favourites! And, you’ve gotta agree, knowing the lyrics to every old school song does make it that little bit more AMAZING!

After a 3 hour stint Kanye and Jay Z left the stage to an insane amount of stomping and shouting, Can I Get An Encore?

And what an Encore it was! 6 remditions of NI*GAS IN PARIS made it. Amazing night, the BEST concert of my life. Thinking of selling your tickets? DON’T .. or infact do.. and give me a ‘Holla’..

Tickets; Jay Z & Kanye

June 11th 2012 cannot come soon enough! .. Samuel and myself are off to see the iconic Hip Hop legends live at the Manchester Arena. Pre Release was on the 22nd of February at 9am! .. Naturally I tried to get hold of such tickets by all means possible! .. being ever so slightly *cough*irrelevant*cough* in the celebrity world I found it impossible to locate tickets! (there’s something to be said for being an O2 customer.. *makes a note for future reference*).

However, when the morning of the 24th came around I was a determined little state! .. I sat clicking refresh from about 8 minutes to 9 (release time). When the clock struck so did I.. POW!

Ok so I realise the upper tier isn’t exactly the best viewing platform but I reckon the atmosphere will be immense either way!
So my unscheduled insomnia was worth it in the end! .. Tickets read and received.
Over and out.

I’ll let you guys know if this happens 😉 hahaa!
