A Night Of Romance, Groovin', And Vibin'....Miguel The Ascension Tour
Okay ladies, I did it. I saw Miguel in concert and it was AMAZING. Like seriously. AMAZING. Miguel’s Ascension tour, featuring DVSN and Miguel’s younger brother, Nonchalant Savant, is a grooving, electrifying excursion through good vibes and a good time and I’m going to take you through it all.
My friends and I got to the venue around 7:00 and the line, while not absurdly crowded was still a bit long, so we took the liberty to get some cute flicks and boomerangs in while we waited. It was Golden Hour, we had to!
So, the tea about the concert. It was supposed to start at 8:00 and guess what time it started? 8:00. On the dot. The lights went down and Nonchalant Savant came up on the stage, raising the crowd’s energy and preparing them for the rest of the night’s performances. He was clearly the newbie, but he still attracted the crowd with smooth melodies and jazzy stylings, setting the mood for the entire show. The first acts usually have a huge weight on their shoulders—they set the precedent for the mood of the entire show. Nonchalant Savant, while the most unknown of the performers, still commanded the stage, forcing the audience to leave all of their negative energy behind and get grooving, a sentiment expressed with all of the performers.
After Nonchalant Savant got the crowd hyped, DVSN blessed the stage. While not an avid stan, I was still a fan of DVSN, but this performance made me fall in love with him. His vocals were amazing—he sounded just like he does on record. But, his performance was also truly captivating. With a medley of his own songs and classic 90s r&b hits (yes, I have videos, you’re welcome) and talented background singers, DVSN coolly enchanted the audience. Ironically, his performance was considerably simple, in direct contrast to Miguel’s (beautiful) vibrant and thrilling performance. He glided and danced across the stage, even dropping to his knees—when he dropped, so did my heart, ladies. DVSN charismatically commanded the stage, singing music that made you want to be in love, cry over a heartbreak, and two-step all at the same time.
After singing my heart out until my voice was gone—please ignore my terrible vocalizing—Miguel came onto the stage and stole all of our hearts. He performed so well I honestly feel like I stole from him—$45 was entirely too cheap for the amazing performance that Miguel gave us. Paired with his amazing band, and wonderful background singers and dancers, Miguel offered a show that Prince would certainly be proud of (fun fact: Prince hated like, I don’t know, everybody). I was literally in bliss the entire show.
This concert literally lasted for nearly four and a half hours and despite a post-concert argument that my friends and I had a front seat view for, the concert was seamless. The transitions weren’t too long, the show certainly started on time, and there were virtually no flaws with any of the performances. I honestly wish I could go back in time and re-live the entire thing…it was that good. If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, I suggest you get them while you can! You’ll be so sorry you missed out!
