Seems every city had the same experience. Macklemore was INCREDIBLE! So much energy, audience interaction, his talking between songs was hilarious, there were songs I had never heard before and found myself immediately loving... No complaints! Kesha was different than expected. I'll admit I do not know much of her new stuff but a friend who does said that didn't really sound the same either but all her old stuff was played differently and hard to dance around to which was what I really looking forward to- a lot of people starting leaving during her set and the energy from the crowd just wasn't there, which is a shame because she closed with Praying and TIk Tok which were both very well done and redeeming.

I’ve always been a really big Macklemore fan and my god was I not in the slightest bit disappointed. He’s absolutely amazing and I will 100% pay to see him again. I could’ve lived the rest of my life without seeing Kesha though. She acted and talked very weird. It was like an annoying girl who tries too hard and her cussing made her seem like a 6th grader trying to fit in with high schoolers. Her songs sound nothing like the ones she records and her Dolly Parton cover was a disgrace. If they ever tore together again it needs to be Kesha first because Macklemore was ridiculously good.

Never heard of or saw Macklemore before but he has converted this heathen to a believer! All the energy, theatrics, crowd interaction, great anecdotes, and knew how to relate to the home turf (by his own admission he played Schuba's six years ago?!) Kesha was a disappointment from the moment she took the stage with a can of Pabst. Nothing sounded like her albums (why am I here?), swore at every other word (yawn), spitting that piss beer on her fans (?), spending way to much time talking about the clothes she's been accumulating (??) and somehow managed to make "Jolene" boring? Kesha's set rocked me hardest when the house lights came up and "9 to 5" came on. There is an Internets worth of GIFs to describe how shitty Kesha was. Go find one you like.

5.0 star rating Loved Macklemore but not Kesha from Los Angeles, California


Macklemore put on a fabulous show! He was energetic and had the fans on their feet the entire time. Kesha didn’t come out until 10:30 and it was a huge disappointment. Her us of the f-word was so over the top that it became a classless performance. I was really hoping to just hear her incredible vocals but her overuse of profanity took away from her performance and we ending up leaving after 30 May utes into her set.

We purposely missed the opening act, but Macklemore and Kesha were fantastic - even in the hot, hot weather. Mackelmore was funny, entertaining and high energy. Kesha was also fabulous belting out hit after hit. I do agree she could limit the F word in respect to her younger fans ( didn't bother me much), but her show was full energy - everyone in my group thought the show was great!

4.0 star rating Luke from Los Angeles, California


The opening act, Wes Period, killed it. Macklemore was phenomenal as usual. But there’s over an hour delay between Macklemore and Kesha, almost fell asleep. This is a Kesha snooze fest, not a Macklemore adventure.

There is nothing more to say than Macklemore came to rock out and put on a show and that is what he did regardless of the tempo. Keshas costume changes while awesome brought the engery down and lasted far too long. If the pace of her show was different it would have been upgraded from good to awesome.
