Irving Plaza was a madhouse Friday Dec 9th for the I Told You Tour. Fans lined up to see Jacquees and Tory Lanez, the versatile artist who brings more than enough energy and enthusiasm to his performances. I got a chance to kick it backstage with Jacquees before he came out for his set. I was able to snap a few pictures of him solo and one with Shaggy. Shortly after, he hit the stage to perform some of his well know records such as “B.E.D.”, “Bounce”, “Hot Girl” , “New Wave” and “Body Right”. He kept the crowd entertained with his singing and dancing and then concluded his set with “Persian Rugs” and “Set It Off”
Tory Lanez then made his way to the stage and opened up his set with “Makaveli”, his intro from his mixtape The New Toronto. The rapper/singer continued to showcase an intense level of energy by jumping over the front bannister and crowd surfing. His set played on as he performed his “Controlla” remix, “Say It” which is the first single from his debut album and “Lord Knows.” In true Tory Lanez fashion, he climbed up the balcony bannister and entertained the crowd while hanging upside down. He used this to close out his show in which he performed “Diego” and “Litty.”
This was my first time ever seeing Tory Lanez perform. He performed at Made In America but i missed him. He performed too early, i think me and my girl were still be sleep. I can say that he is extremely energetic and enthusiastic. He was on 100 his entire set and that right there is always a plus. His crowd involvement as far as the crowd surfing and climbing up the balcony is insane. I’ve seen a lot of great shows and performers/performances this year and i think Tory Lanez is definitely up there on my list as far as great shows go.
