Tonight marked the fourth stop on Future’s Purple Reign Tour, performing for a sold out Indianapolis crowd. First up for the night was Ty Dolla $ign, playing a number of tracks from his debut album Free TC. From the start, the crowd was singing in harmony with Ty Dolla. Ty Dolla’s set was full of energy, crowd surfing to sharing his own recreations with the fans. The Wiz Khalifa-affiliated artist finished his set with a preview of a song seen later in the show, ‘Blase’. Needless to say, Ty Dolla $ign started the Purple Reign show off with plenty of energy.
The crowd in Indy was primed for a great show from Future Hendrix. Future delivered above and beyond the cost of admission for the sell out crowd – which is understandable, considering Future has three number one albums within one year. Future reeled off hit after hit – including some earlier tracks such as ‘Same Damn Time,’ and ‘Jumpman’ from What A Time to Be Alive. Future brought Ty Dolla back for an encore performance of ‘Blase’ which absolutely ignited the crowd. Heaviest play came from critically acclaimed DS2 and Purple Reign which was just released weeks ago. The highlight of the show, in my opinion, had to be ‘March Madness’ a track that has only continued to gain momentum. (The title of the track resonated especially well with the IU Hoosier crowd). In addition the music, the stage lighting of the show was in complete harmony with Future’s themed Dirty Sprite 2/Purple Reign.
