Hip Hop Star Lupe Fiasco Rocks #SummerFest – Review and Photos
“The World’s Largest Music Festival” and “The Big Gig” are just a few of the names associated with Summerfest which is one of the most recognized music festivals in the country. For several decades the eleven day festival has brought together hundreds upon hundreds of bands and musicians each summer of the year. Music enthusiasts of all genres from all parts attend the festival which is held within the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in Henry Maier Festival Park near the downtown lakefront area. On July 3rd, perhaps the busiest day of the festival and day of the traditional fireworks show aptly known as the “Big Bang”, concert-goers were treated to an electrifying evening. Thanks in no small part to a crowd rousing performance by Lupe Fiasco, a hit recording influential hip-hop artist from the neighboring area of Chicago, Illinois whom has earned critical acclaim and is known as a master lyricist. Lupe Fiasco has been a featured headliner at Summerfest for several years now, with this being one of his most celebrated appearances.
The immense crowd at the Miller Lite Oasis stage filled the outdoor area to capacity shoulder to shoulder as the ecstatic eager bodies grew in quantity during the headliner’s performance. The charismatic artist buoyantly walked across the stage wearing a vibrant gold colored shirt and sporting dreadlocks which he would later whip wildly in the air while dancing in the midst of singing classic fan favorites and his band’s guitar solos. He also provided new exciting sounds from his latest album Tetsuo & Youth.
Sending the crowd into deep fervor were instances of the artist launching water from water bottles into the enthusiastic energetic crowd and a fan throwing him a shirt which Lupe waved around as he performed. The talented hip hop artist effortlessly had total control and attention from the crowd as he guided them through chants like “Milwaukee ain’t ready!” as they responded “Lupe ain’t ready!”. Countless fans waved their arms and sang along to hit records like Out of My Head, The Show Goes On, Battle Scars and more.
Lupe ended the night with one of his biggest hits to date, the platinum selling single Superstar and nearly everyone in the expansive audience used their cell phones as lights waving them along as they joined the song’s chorus. It was a powerful memorizing sight and a fitting finish to an unforgettable performance at Summerfest 2015.
