CHARLOTTE — Rapper Logic, aka Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, rocked the stage at the PNC Music Pavilion on Tuesday night. Fans from all over North Carolina, which call themselves the “RattPack,” stood and chanted his name as he walked out on stage.
The concert began with three openers: Big Lenbo, NF and Kyle. Logic opened with one of his hit singles “44 More” and astounded his fans with his outstanding rap skills along with the theatrical lights and lasers.
Throughout the show, he performed many songs from his recent mixtape, “Bobby Tarantino II,” and his most recent album, “Everybody,” including some of his top songs like “Contra,” “Midnight” and the very popular quadruple platinum single, “1-800-273-8255”. This song is widely known around the world for its positive message. Logic also performed some of his hit throwbacks such as “Fade Away” and “Gang Related,” along with an unreleased song called “Keanu Reeves.” Fans could be seen singing along to every lyric with excitement.
Although the RattPack was not ready to leave, the concert was coming to an end. Logic ended the glorious show with his popular hit “Everyday” along with extravagant lights and smoke. It was a great finale to a magnificent show.

   RALEIGH — More than 20,000 people gathered at the Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek to see Austin Post, or as he is more commonly known Post Malone, in concert on Friday night. 21 Savage and Post Malone have been touring the country in celebration of Malone’s new album, “Beerbongs and Bentleys,” which was released on April 27.
21 Savage opened the show with a unique performance. Malone delayed taking the stage due to the fact he was sick. But regardless, Malone rapped and sang his heart out. The concert began with “Too Young,” a popular song from Malone’s debut album “Stoney.”
Even though Malone was sick, he still delivered an amazing performance. He even stopped rapping to perform an acoustic rendition of “Feeling Whitney” from “Stoney” and “Stay” from “Beerbongs and Bentleys.”
He ended the concert with the famous tune, “Congratulations.” Malone led the crowd with pure energy and joy. There were two parts to this concert — Malone and the audience. The audience cheered Malone on, even when he messed up lyrics to “No Option.” Malone has a unique stage presence. He smashed his acoustic guitar at the very end as part of his post-concert tradition.
Malone’s concert was a unique experience for 21 Savage fans and Post Malone fans alike.
