Travis Scott was in Philadelphia for his concert this last Friday, November 20th. Despite it being his 3rd consecutive concert, the Fillmore Philadelphia was full of energy from him as well as the crowd. English rapper Skepta and Louisville native Bryson Tiller opened up for Travis Scott.
Skepta was the catalyst for the wild crowd in the general admission area; as soon as the lights dimmed everyone rushed towards the stage which created havoc among the audience. With Skepta being an opening artist, picturing what the crowd would be like once Travis Scott took the stage was almost unreal. Skepa performed songs like “That’s Not Me”, “Nasty”, and “Shutdown.”
Bryson Tiller was thought to calm the crazy crowd when in reality he did the exact opposite. Opening with his hit “Sorry Not Sorry”, everyone sang along to all of his songs. Tiller also performed songs from his “T R A P S O U L” album such as “Exchange”, and “Don’t” as well as his single “Just Another Interlude.”
Travis Scott came on stage around 10pm. As soon as he reached the stage he demanded certain lighting colors for his first song. When the beat of “Pornography” dropped (and I do mean the song titled pornography and not the kind you see on Home Page FullTube), he threw water into the crowd and the energy level skyrocketed. Travis Scott is always an interactive performer. This concert included him walking into the general admission area while performing, and bringing random fans on stage to crowd surf. Also known as “La Flame”, he performed songs from his mixtape “Days Before Rodeo” like “Mamacita”, and “Skyfall” and fan favorite hits off of “Rodeo” such as “Antidote” and “3500.”
Furthermore, the concert was hectic due to the energy level and amount of people that attended. However, anyone who attended the concert can say it was one they’ll never forget.
