Post Malonein support of his fourth studio album Twelve karat toothache, continued their “Twelve Carat Tour” #TCT in Philadelphia at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday, October 6 with opening act Roddy Ricch. The two artists offered an explosive and boosted performance. With a tetralogy of chart-topping hits spanning just 6 years (ranging from iverson white at I like you…), Post gave his all, with a passion tested, and musically, he left nothing behind. It was an evening of celebration, love and community…and we are absolutely here for it!

DJ Zak Bia opened the show with an extravagant dance party, spinning tracks that had everyone buzzing, followed by lyrical heavyweight, Roddy Ricch, whose lineup of hits catapulted him to fame, such as the Grammy-winning record.

In the City of Brotherly Love, Post shared a powerful sentiment: If you see someone who looks like they need a hug, please give them a hug, because you never know what it might do to a person.. Even at the end of the show, he expressed his gratitude, God’s love and energy, and all the love his fans gave him, while emphasizing the importance of truth and the individuality of each. Above music, Post puts people and his compassion for them first…and always has from the start…which is just one of the reasons he’s loved by fans. million fans. And her connection to them is unmatched.

In a class of rock, rap, pop, etc. genre-defying, Post’s performance was comparable to a heavyweight fight in music, throwing all the punches and kills and dominating the stage with fierce energy, which is perfect for a Rocky reference, since the fictional fighter beloved of Philadelphia had brought so much love and heart to his city. From a famous quote in the movie that read, “Life isn’t about how hard you can hit…it’s about how many hits you can take and keep going.” And that is universally true! When Post was injured at one of his shows just a few weeks ago, he straightened up like a high-powered machine. After the dark times that we have collectively faced in recent years, in particular, we are moving forward and thriving through the strength of the human spirit.

While many other artists’ live shows consist largely of glitz and glamour, such as dancers, wardrobe changes and special effects, Post is a self-contained artist, real and raw: a powerhouse electric on its own. While he can (and has) done a full group performance (Budlight Tours/Sessions), he really doesn’t need to. Likewise, while there was a full production of smoke, pyro, fireworks, and out-of-the-ordinary lighting (including color-changing flames), which heightened the concert experience, everything paled. compared to its stellar performance. If you didn’t feel alive and electrically charged during this concert, check your pulse! Because Post really delivered and brought us a thrilling show – a show where we felt a palpable good energy throbbing in our hearts for the entire fucking set!

The amount of love poured over this incredible artist is unreal. Honestly, my senses were blown away by the extraordinaryness of a performance, amplified by an unfiltered compassion and outpouring of love that flowed through all of us. He STAYED after the show to greet the fans and sign autographs…ON STAGE! And he’s a great artist who doesn’t need to put in more time, but he does, and he’s been super humble from day one. Unconventionally, Post didn’t disappear into the shadows before an encore; instead, he made the callback transparent in the set list, exposing everything openly (and, in doing so, revealing his soul). After the show, people were chanting and shouting her name in the hallways and outside the venue. As people marched past the gates to the parking lots, you could hear their adoration echoing throughout the arena’s interior. I have never seen anything like it!

Again, it was obvious that Post was swelling with gratitude throughout the show. I think he has reached a pinnacle of balance and harmony within himself, despite all his hardships to get there. I believe he found a sense of inner peace and happiness, which he talked about in an interview with Zane Lowe. And what he has captured, he transmits it directly to his fans and brings other artists (his friends) with him. It’s about sharing love. The most powerful moment was THE HUG Post gave Ricch…it moved me so much I burst inside and was struck by the intensity of it…with a kindness pure and radiant. It caused a joyous chain reaction of people hugging in the audience, which was truly beautiful.

This intense outpouring of emotion is precisely what the complexities of the album allude to, for the 9-time Grammy-nominated artist, who is a stark look at his internal struggles and vulnerability: managing to find the nasty parts. and ugly within ourselves and transmute that energy into love. The interesting thing about this is that the same brain circuit would be involved in all extreme emotions, which is why love and hate (love/hate letter to alcohol) are sometimes related. It is our job to focus this energy (and all of its chaotic and crazy parts) into a place of mindfulness, serenity, gratitude and well-being. And it starts with self-love, caring and appreciation for others. This is where Philadelphia got its name: the root words of philos (beloved) and adelphos (brother).

Finally, what was cool afterwards was that popular Philadelphia hip-hop station Q102 continued to play Post’s songs all night after the show, as if celebrating it in their city. Even Philadelphia stations love Post! The complete Wells Fargo Center setlist is available here. If fans were lucky enough, they could experience the World Pong League (VIP) lounge or one of the Don London Tequila After Parties. Because you know that any festive atmosphere around Post Malone is imbued with love and synonymous with great energy! Catch Post on the road for the remaining Twelve Carat Tour dates…and party with the ultimate rockstar!
