The Escape from Wiscansin tour came in hot and heavy to New York City. Fans were wrapped around the venue awaiting entry. The energy was high and the vibes were unbeatable! The Rooftop at Pier 17 is a beautiful venue overlooking the skyline and East River.
Prior to any of the openers, fans were already dancing and feeling the energy of the night to come. Young Cash, NandoSTL, and Tobi Lou.
Young Cash, NandoSTL, and Tobi Lou opened up for T-Pain, from the second Young Cash stepped on stage fans knew they were in for an incredible night filled with extremely talented artists. Young Cash and NandoSTL are both a part of T-Pain’s founded record label ‘Nappy Boy Entertainment.’ These artists truly engaged the crowd, keeping them on their feet moving the entire time. Smiles and drinks were flowing throughout the night. Young Cash opened up the night with upbeat energy which was later followed by NandoSTL and Tobi Lou who kept the energy high!
T-Pain After all of the dancing and moving seen with the openers I thought the crowd would be tired, but as soon as T-Pain stepped foot onto that stage surrounded by trippy visuals and beats bumping everybody was awake and ready to party. There wasn’t a second you didn’t see fans screaming T-Pains songs with pure joy on their faces. You could feel the excitement radiating through that New York skyline and you could feel the love reciprocated by T-Pain.
T-Pain went on to deliver an incredibly engaging and unique performance, T-pain shared that he had many friends and family in the crowd and that he was feeling extremely blessed. The smiles and excitement never faded throughout the entire set, and the same was to be said for T-Pain, you could just tell from his expressions how thankful he was to be standing on that stage doing what he loves most – performing. The Escape from Wiscansin tour was one for the books and if you haven’t been to a show yet you definitely need to! They came ready to party and perform their hearts out.
