Glasgow was in for a night of old-school garage, dance and hip hop music as music legends attended the SSE Hydro on their tour around the UK. Fans were taken back to their childhoods with songs from the 90s. The show started with some UK Garage artists who warmed up the stage for the host FatmanScoop who was incredible as he managed to keep the energy going throughout the show. At one point he disappeared only to reappear in a blue tartan kilt and proceeded to go "taps aff" in front of hundreds of fans.
Blue Cantrell was the first of the line up to grace us with her melodies as she sang "Make Me Wanna Scream" and "Breathe" which had the crowd joining in for the most part. Following this act was Mya who was sporting an all glitter play suit, stunning her fans with her shinning light, and supported by her DJ and back up dancers.
There was a mystery act advertised on the poster and we were all waiting with anticipation to find out who this could possibly be. She blasted onto the stage with her reggie vibes and sang us her new song - it was EVE. Celebrating international Woman's day, Eve had a special shout out to all the women in the house (venue) and they equally gave
her an even bigger shout out back.
Next onto the stage were the iconic duo - Salt N Pepa. They came in charged with energy and graced us with some "Push It" and "Let's Talk About Sex" which are songs that almost everyone would have been listening to in those dance halls. Now one of my favorite acts from the night, singing songs such as "Boombastic" "Oh Carolina" and the very best "It Wasn't Me" - Shaggy. He also made a speech referencing International Woman's day along with his song "It Wasn't Me". The last act for the night was the incredible Nelly. He was accompanied by Ali and City Spud and two amazing dancers who were doing moves I wish I could perform. He belted out "Ride Wit Me" and closed his set with "Hot In Herre" and "Dilemma". The fans that had filled the Hydro wanted more, they weren't content until they had one more song from Nelly and so he came back on to cheers from the crowd to sing "Just A Dream" which seemed like a perfect end to the night.
