"Blackstar at House Of Blues Boston"


          

Firstly, I can't believe there are no posts about people excited for Mos to come to Boston. However, I bought tix to a show billed as Blackstar, Mos Def and Talib Kweli. Now they are calling it Mos def whatever tour feat. Talib, Jay Electronica and Medina Green.

So, does this mean that Mos is headlining and Talib is performing separately? I really hope not. I've seen both alone plenty of times, I wanna see BLACKSTAR! Especially when I paid livenation prices to see what was billed as Blackstar! Does anyone know the deal?

I enjoyed rock the bells last month, but one of the big disappoinments was that no one really came out for cameo collabos. Talib came out for some of Common's set, but they mixed up the set order without telling anyone so I only saw one song they did together. No one came out for a song with the Roots, no one during Talib's set...it was disappointing. I know we tend to expect a lot from our favorite underpaid/overworked artists (The Roots, Talib, etc.) but the crowd would have gone crazy if Common came out during the Roots set and did UnIverse at War?!

I don't wanna see mos and talib do a 3 song medley.

they're going to do whatever the fuck they feel like doing..

and if you're buying tickets that's what you should expect..

if you're going to a show with expectations of collabs and cameos you're

wasting your time and money. just enjoy what the artist has to offer.

I hear that, but if they are going to bill a show as Blackstar, and Blackstar doesn't perform, you don't think I have the right to be disappointed?

If it was advertised and sold to you as a Blackstar show, then ya i think you have the right to be disappointed. Not that theres shit you can do about it...but i'd be disappointed to.

If its billed as Mos def with special guest talib, then i think its safe to assume they're only doing like 1-2 songs together if that.

This is one of the only shows that Kweli is part of because him and Hi Tek are doing Rock the Bells Presents.

I think that's why they bill it as Mos...to have continuity with the rest of the tour.

We'll have to wait and see how that translates to the show. I bet it goes Jay, Kweli, Kweli/Mos, Mos but I bet that Kweli/Mos section is closer to the medley that you lamented than anything resembling a full set.

I liked what he had to say. Jay Electronica sucked. His shtick was corny. He wanted to do every verse accapela but couldn't keep the rhythm. Weak sauce.
