Is there anyone bigger than Post Malone right now? With a number of his songs on constant rotation on your favorite radio station and with his new sophomore LP, beerbongs & bentleys, which broke a number of streaming records and was certified platinum in four days, Postie is on top of the rap game in 2018.
So of course Chicago came out in massive numbers to catch Post Malone and 21 Savage at the lake front’s Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island, even though fans could have just as easily waited for Post to hit the stage at Bonnaroo in a couple of months.
Setting the stage for Malone was his ‘rockstar’ collaborator, 21 Savage. Savage put on a great co-headlining set that kept the entire crowd satisfied. Performing his best tracks like ‘Bank Account’, ‘No Heart’, ‘X’ and verses from some of his biggest collaborations, 21 Savage has the crowd going wild from start to finish.
And if a 21 Savage concert wasn’t enough, moments after 21 stepped off stage, it was time for Post Malone to greet the sold-out crowd in Chicago. Although the production of his performances hasn’t changed much since his tours past, the Texas native is now a household name in rap.
No more opening performances where the crowd just knows the hook to a couple songs, Post Malone is on a whole different level from his ‘White Iverson’ days. And although A.I. and Carl Malone weren’t known for throwing it down, Post Malone delivered a slam dunk for his Windy City fans tonight.
