This is an event packed week

First Restaurant Week (posted below), Now this.....

Early last week I received an email from my girl GG letting me know Estelle was going to be at Wingate field this Monday for free. Having seen the line-up list about a month or so ago, I thought she may have written the wrong date(yes Dreamy, I was ready to be like Uhm yeah the date is wrong so I could be right, Haha). Estelle was suppose to be there with Jill Scott two weeks later. Well NO GG was right, the line up had finally been revised and the mystery guest revealed! JOHN LEGEND, and Estelle.

YES that's right John Legend at the high school field performing for Free.


I love his music (as well as Estelle), so for the next day I am putting Nas (You still don't have it, well what the heck are you waiting for?) on pause and doing a combo-playlist of the two and will listen until I arrive at the concert. It will probably be PACKED so I can't guarantee pictures of the concert, but I know this crowd and I'm sure my follow up post will go something like this:

"John Legend was great, Estelle rocked but the crowd was well a hot mess. (insert pic) Now why did she have to go and do that? This is a family show....." LOL

If anyone is interested hit me at my gmail, I'll be there about 5:00.

@12K Squared NAS is back in rotation.. Got to play it to keep the devil out my head, LOL

@Lena... Hmmm now I know I sent you the list in email. so you are on punishment.

It was a good night but still rather the hot because Wingate was like a stadium!

Lena said...

You did but it said Mystery Guest...I was going to take a chance and get there and find out it was somebody I never even heard of, lol. I'll be there for Estelle though, I already told Hyasmine I am dragging her.

The F$%K it List said...

Estelle was there last night!next is Erykah Badu and Jill Scott.

You have to check back with that site periodically because you just never know what is going to happen.

@Kieya girl I missed you when I was posting, having to put Dreamy on punishment and all.

I am so glad I braved the heat wave to see this show John Legend is the truth.

JL put on a great show, looked good, sounded great the whole package and the best part is he really performed for FREE. He asked that a portion of his fee be donated to his Show Me charity and the other half to a fund that gives Brooklyn kids scholarships to summer camp.

I AM HOT STEAMING MAD!!! I can't believe I missed out on another free John Legend concert!

Serves me right for playing hookey from work... If I'd gone to work I would have made the blog rounds and I would've known...

UGH! I'm so sick over this...

*goes to cry in the bathroom*

I skipped out... Semipro texted that he would be there asking if I was going but I'm in operation ignore his arse so I ignored the text and didn't go... but my homegirl told me there were so many people out there that I wouldnt have seen him but nope...just my luck I would have run right into him... either way... I will he there for Jill and Erykah regardless of his arse... I've seen JL so many times already and just saw Estelle last month at a private show in the Puma store in soho so I wasn't pressed.

happy hour tonight at Covo in harlem... come thru if you can!

The F$%K it List said...

SMH at skipping out because of Semi-Pro you should have come and I would have told his big butt off!

Oh yes Jill Scott, I already feel a cold coming on for the day. We should all meet up..... Jaded and Lena PUT IT IN YOUR CALENDARS!

Kieya said...

I heard John was good. I tried to go to Wingate last year to see Lauryn Hill and it was soooo ridiculous. They wouldn't let people past a certain point etc. Needless to say I didn't get a chance to see LBoog. I definitely want to see Badu she is excellent in concert!
