I went to the lil wayne concert on april 19th 2011. I had bought tickets 2 months in advance, one for me and one for my girlfriend. Both were VIP tickets costing me $510 total. When we got to the U.S. Airways Center around 7 pm, you could see hundreds of people waiting in line to get inside. After a couple pictures we decided to get in line, which wasn?t as long for us because we had VIP tickets. We took our seats and waited for the show to start. Lil Wayne came out and started talking to his fans. I?ve been to a lot of concerts, and most of the time, artists come out to one of their songs to get the crowd started. Well Lil Wayne decided to have a sort of monologue before performing any of his songs. It was amazing, he talked about his life, and without his fans, he would be, and have nothing. It was rather inspiring. Then he began performing his music: everything from his old stuff to his newest songs. The stage was one of the biggest I had ever seen before. It had 15 television screens in rows of 5 horizontal and 3 vertical. Each screen must?ve been 10 feet by 10 feet because they were humongous. Not only that, but they also had stairs in the back because when Lil Wayne wasn?t on the floor next to the crowd, he was up at the top in front of the screens. Again, nothing I had ever seen before. He changed clothes like every 3 songs or so, rising from the floor, or walking next to the crowd. His energy was through the roof. All I could do was jump up and sing along with him. Now who ever the live sound engineer was, knew what he was doing, because all of his music sounded just like the CD, and you could hear his voice crystal clear over the microphone and the sound systems. Not to mention, the air conditioning must?ve been cranked because it was actually rather cold in there, making it comfortable enough to deal with being surrounded by thousands of people. Lil Wayne along with Birdman, one of his original mentors, put on a fantastic show. If you?re even remotely a Lil Wayne fan, his concerts will surely blow you away. I have never had so much fun or enjoyed such a great show in all the concerts I had been to. I will say I wish it was in a different venue, one with more room around the stage instead of stadium seating. Other than that the experience was amazing.
