The show was opened by Mount Clemens’ own Venomiz who, despite early microphone troubles, managed to pull out a energetic set that was highlighted by closer “Reality”.
A number of bands followed Venomiz including Warren’s All Day Movement and Detroit’s KJD with solid sets but unfortunately after awhile they all began to blend together and began to lose the crowd’s interest.
By the time Bone Thugs N’ Harmony finally took the stage around midnight, the crowd was beginning to get restless but quickly fed off of their energy as well as the live band they brought along with them.
Bone Thugs N’ Harmony is out on tour promoting the tenth anniversary of the release of their BTNHResurrection album and this stop of the tour featured a number of their old school tracks as well as some newer material. Their set included classics “Thuggish Ruggish Bone”, “Foe The Love of $”, “Ecstasy” and “1st of the Month”. The band also took some time during the show to pay tribute to some of their inspirations with a medley of Eazy E., Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. songs.
The highlights were the band’s heartfelt performances of “Meet Me In The Sky” and their most popular single “Tha Crossroads”. By the end of the evening, everyone who made it out was happy they had made the trip. Afterwards, Venomiz described the show as “A success! The crowd energy was amazing and Bone really put it down. Overall it was a great show.”
