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

In a rock class, rap, pop, etc. Genre-defying, Post’s performance was comparable to a heavyweight fight in music, throwing all the punches and just killing and dominating the stage with ferocious energy, which is perfect for a Rocky reference. , as Philadelphia’s beloved fictional wrestler had brought so much love and heart to the city from him. Following a famous quote in the movie that said, “Life isn’t about how hard you can hit… it’s about how many you can take and keep moving forward.” And this is universally true! When Post got hurt at one of his shows a few weeks ago, he came back up like a high-powered machine. After the dark times we collectively faced in the past few years especially, we are moving forward and prospering on the strength of the human spirit.

While many other artists’ live shows are largely made up of glitz and glamour, like dancers, costume changes and special effects, Post is a real, raw independent artist: a powerhouse of his own. While he can (and has) put on a full band gig (Budlight Tours/Sessions), he really doesn’t need to. Similarly, while there was a full production of smoke, pyrotechnics, fireworks, and out-of-this-world lighting (including color-changing flames), which heightened the concert experience, all of that pales in comparison to his stellar performance. . If you didn’t feel alive and charged with electricity during this concert, take your pulse! Because Post really delivered and brought us a fast-paced show, one where we felt a palpable good energy beating in our hearts for the entire damn set!

The amount of love poured out on this incredible artist is unreal. Honestly, my senses were blown away by how extraordinary the performance was, amplified by unfiltered compassion and an outpouring of love that flowed through all of us. He STAYED after the show to greet fans and sign autographs… ON STAGE! And this is a great artist who doesn’t need to put in extra 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 encore perfect within the set list, laying it all out in the open (and, in doing so, laying bare his soul). After the show, people chanted and shouted his name through the halls and outside the venue. As people walked out of the parking lot gates, adoration for him could be heard echoing throughout the interior of the arena. I had never seen anything like it!

Once again, it was obvious that Post was full of gratitude throughout the show. I believe that he has reached an iota of balance and harmony within himself, despite all the trials of him to get there. I think he has found a sense of inner peace and happiness, which he talked about in an interview with Zane Lowe. And what he has assimilated, he channels directly to his fans and brings in other artists (his friends) to join him. It’s about sharing love. The most powerful moment was THE HUG that Post gave to Ricch… it moved me in such a way that it welled up inside me and I was hit with the intensity… of pure radiant goodness. It induced a joyous chain reaction of people hugging in the audience that was positively beautiful.

This intense outpouring of emotion is precisely what the album’s intricacies allude to, for the nine-time Grammy-nominated artist, which is a raw look at one’s inner struggles and vulnerability: managing to find the nasty, ugly parts within ourselves. themselves and transmute that energy. in love What’s interesting about this is that the same brain circuitry is said to be involved in all extreme emotions, which is why love and hate (love/hate letter to alcohol) are sometimes interrelated. It’s our job to focus that energy (and all of its chaotic and insane parts) into a place of mindfulness, serenity, gratitude, and well-being. And that starts with self-love and care and appreciation for others. It’s where Philadelphia got its name: the roots of the words philos (beloved) and adelphos (brother).

Finally, what was cool next was that popular Philadelphia hip hop station Q102 kept playing Post’s songs all night long, following the show, as if to celebrate it in their city. Even the Philadelphia stations love Post! The full track listing for The Wells Fargo Center can be found here. If fans were lucky enough, they could experience the World League of Pong (VIP) Lounge or one of Don London’s Tequila After Parties. Because you know that any party atmosphere that surrounds Post Malone is full of love and is synonymous with a lot of energy! Catch Post on the road for the remaining dates of the Twelve Carat Tour… and party with the biggest rock star!
