Fan Reviews: Lupe at UTA
"I went to the Lupe Fiasco show at UT-Arlington on Sep 24th, and I was blown away. I thought Lu's performance at Glow in the Dark could not be topped, but he gave the most incredible performance I've ever seen (and the tickets were only 25 bucks!!). His energy was crazy, he would spit lines at sonic speed and then slow down with the most flawless flow. When the whole auditiorium began chanting his name, he ran across the stage did a cartwheel and then a BACKFLIP!! And in addition to rapping, he also sang! He sang a slow jazz song, the intro to Daydreamin, and I must say LU CAN DEFINETLY SING!! Lupe also performed a song from LupEND, which I don't know the name of but it was a slow jam with incredible lyrics and a mellow beat. And Lu's dance moves were much more polished than usual (I think he's been rehearsing!). What I loved most about this show was not only Lu's incredible energy, but he was not afraid to be himself....He was not afraid of being silly or speaking his mind. And at the end, he gave the most articulate and motivating mini speech about why we should educate ourselves and vote. I also got to meet Lupe before the show, and even though he was running late, he was really sweet and took the time to meet me and my sister and take some pics with us! (THANKS LU!) I've been to a lot of concerts, but this was definetly the best show I've ever been to! If Lupe is coming to your city, definetly go and see him because you'll get every cents worth and you will fall even more in love with hip hop."
