They received the chance to open up for MGK, Desiigner, Gucci Mane, and Fetti Wap.

Concert Review:

Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a special welcome from Swisher Sweets. The venue was filled with a great amount of fans, supporters, and special guests. The cheerful crowd anticipates all talents.

With New Orleans legendary, DJ Mannie Fresh and Comedian Rude Jude, they kept the crowd rolling. They kept us hyped and full of energy.

What we noticed was that the lineup for the show became diverse. We would normally see all opening acts perform before the headliners. Well, Swisher shuffled the stars with aspiring artists. Giving everyone a chance to be equally heard throughout the show. This made the show more exciting.

Every artist gave a good show, we received a special show from Fetti Wap. He served his fans up and down the stage. He seemed to have enjoyed the show as much as the audience did. Wap dances and sang without a doubt in his mind. We got the chance to see him live performing all of his hit songs.

Next, we seen the best performance of the show By Machine Gun Kelly. MGK show seemed to be one of the most anticipated from the crowds reaction. He bounced from one end of stage to another, even climbing on top of balcony. Touching everyone from upstairs on down, we loved that part of show.

The last performance was worth waiting for as LaFlare (Gucci Mane) comes unto the stage glowing the venue up! Atlanta’s own comes to New Orleans and sang his fans favorite songs. Gucci is no stranger to the Big Easy, you can tell he felt as f he was at home. He performed hits such as “Lemonade”, “Freaky Girl”, “Wake Up In The Sky”, “Black Beatles”, and more.

Overall, concert was a great experience. We become intimate with the artists, which joined the fans together. One thing that we did noticed was some of the crowd participation become tough for some of the opening acts. The support from the audience lingered throughout the show. Besides that, we give the show both thumbs up! We would like to thank Swisher Sweets for allowing us to attend their show. Can’t wait to see what’s next for the New Year!
