A$AP FERG – recap
This past week A$AP Ferg and Tory Lanez headlined a show at the Ogden theater in Denver.
The two artists traded places during the performance, sharing the spotlight and creating a dual show. The arrangement was unique but it worked for these artists.
Tory flexed his vocal range, paying homage to classics such as Ginuwine’s “Pony” and Bel Biv DeVoe’s “Poison.” He also brought some rap that interweaved well with the harder shit Ferg chose.
In all honesty, Lanez needs to be known as an electric performer. Aside from displaying a wide range of skills he climbs shit. He literally climbs everything, if you see him at a show you will see the man climb. And he crowdsurfs a lot. I watched him open at Red Rocks this past Halloween and he crowdsurfed that. It took forever. This time at the Ogden he Spiderman-ed his way to the rail by the VIP ticket-holders and declared that he was going to “be with the people, for the fucking people, and party with the people.” We were all relieved when he got down but it was also pretty unique and memorable.
Ferg was energetic and on point. Although his overall contribution was brief, each track received top-level treatment. Denver was glad to hear two new songs, “Hungry Ham” and “New Level,” and both sounded great and the crowd went wild. He brought back “Shabba” and “Work,” two reliable mosh tracks which were also well received (although the rotating format prevented Ferg from bringing on a lot of ladies for these songs as has happened at past Denver shows).
Each artist brought out guests and although the 16+ show ended before midnight, it was a long set of the two stars and a solid set list.
